Opened by Lee Seungri of K-Pop superstar group Big Bang, the restaurant recently launched at the sixth floor of Pavilion KL.

Barbecued marinated chashu, crunchy leek and bamboo shoot, roasted seaweed and an onsen egg serve as the supporting cast to the main stars, doing a great job and rounding out the flavour profile and adding depth to the overall package. Photo: Tien Chew/Malaysia Tatler Unlike other ramen restaurants that offer a variety of choices, the restaurant's menu is tight and focused, offering only two versions of their ramen, lite or the standard version with the works. Other items include additional toppings, such as Korean leek kimchi or beansprouts, to beef up your ramen experience. If you're really hungry, the restaurant has another signature – tamago kake gohan, which is essentially rice with minced pork, egg and soy sauce, to fill you up.

Those hoping to get a taste outside of Kuala Lumpur will have hope, as the restaurant plans to bring their noodles to other parts of the country in due time.
