Kisyu at Desa Sri Hartamas: Snapshot
Time to check out another new Japanese joint: Desa Sri Hartamas’ Kisyu Ramen.
Kisyu specialises in ramen, with varieties like curry ramen, garlic ramen & butter-&-corn ramen (mostly RM22+ to RM24+). There is also Maze-Soba, a ramen preparation that’s served hot & dry with bean sprouts, pork belly slices & minced meat, meant to be mixed together before being eaten. Slick & savoury, absolutely addictive; RM19.80+.
Looking like a bowl of bee hoon, these ‘yam noodles’ supply a crisp counterpoint to the creamy raw egg they’re immersed in. RM8+; Kisyu seems to have a solid claim to authenticity, judging from its exclusively Japanese clientele on a recent evening.
Protein-powered pleasure: Roast pork, thin but tender, partnered with an onsen egg. RM12+; tasty enough for us to contemplate returning to check out the remainder of the menu – lots of kushikatsu & yakitori, rice bowls, & no lack of fried fare.
For dessert, skip the regular green tea ice cream & snack on the fried sweet potatoes with a honey-butter dip. RM11.80+.
Dry, crisp sake starts from RM35+ for this serving that should suffice – barely – for two people for, say, twenty minutes.
