Goku Raku Ramen @ Mid Valley CityFriday, April 04, 2014
We started off with one of their specialty dish called “Utsunomiya Yaki Gyoza”. The dish caught us by surprise as the layer of pan fried flour still clings at the bottom that enveloped the gyoza. The texture of the minced pork is loose but saturated with moisture that is well retained within the skin of gyoza. There is nice aroma of chives unfortunately it didn’t really appeal though the layer of the flour makes great snack or finger food. The dish also comes with the special side serving of sauce for the gyoza, “Miso Tare & Shoyu Tare”.
(L) 8pcs – RM 14.90
The first item would be the “Utsunomiya Sui Gyoza”. The steam version of the previous gyoza didn’t really appeal as the taste of onion and the spices that is blend along with broth on top of the gyoza is too strong which overwhelms the nature flavours of the gyoza.
Next is the “Crispy Shrimp Mayo”. Deep fried, thick battered prawn which is then topped with mayonnaise that shares similarities to the battered prawn in Dim sum restaurants. The texture was slightly let down as the batter was thick and soggy which the prawn natural taste is masked by the batter.
The “Siew Mai” is nothing to shout about as it’s rather plain and the flavour doesn’t agree the other dish combination besides the fresh prawn on top which compliments in the flavour.
The next is dish is the “Sweet & Sour Pork”. The taste is normal though its leans more to dry chilli type of taste and the meat texture is bit rough and hard.
