Recently I had pay a visit to Mid Valley Megamall Mall, and I decided to give a try on Hanamaru Udon. There are a long queue in front of the restaurant, but incredibly, it only takes a short while until my turn. There are just take few steps to get the delicious udon.

1. Take a tray.
2. Tell the staff which udon you prefer and patiently wait for the staff to hand over the udon.
3. Pick the side dishes to make your meal complete.
4. Add Oden or rice ball to your meal depending on your preference.
5. Pay at the counter and ready to enjoy your udon!

Ontama Bukkake- Rm8.80 (R)| Rm11.80 (L)
After viewing their menu, as an egg lover, I decided to get myself an Ontama Bukkake. It is actually udon with the Mori no Tamago. It is a special kind of Japanese egg that can be eaten raw. The chicken that produces the eggs are fed with a special blend of feeds in order to produce well- balanced nutritious eggs that are safe and healthy. It can be consumed even for children. The udon is so thick and it is springy. Although this dish may seem simple, but actually the broth’s flavor is comes from dried kelp and sardines harvested from the tranquil oceans of Japan. It is also with an original blend of soy sauce.

Salad Udon- Rm12.80 (R)| Rm15.80 (L)
I also ordered Salad Udon. Udon is served with salad, and the udon is still cold. It gives me different type of experience as I always eat udon in hot. The vegetable is fresh and the portion is quite big. I like the roasted sesame dressing, it is so appetite stimulated.

Kakiage Egg- Rm4.80
Kakiage Egg is a popular side dish that patrons always order. It is a kind of tempura that made with vegetable strips. On top of the kakiage, there is a Mori no Tamago. The kakiage is sweet in flavor and it is crispy. It is really delicious when the egg yolk is mix with the kakiage.

Not to forget to mention that, the noodles are made at the restaurant every day. In order to serve the best qualities of the noodles to the patrons, Hanamaru Udon will not keep the cooked noodles longer than 30 minutes.
