Menya Shi-Shi Do, Sri Petaling, KL

It's been a while since we had ramen with BabySumoKids, so we took them with us to try a new ramen joint in Sri Petaling. According to their Instagram page, Menya Shi-Shi Do's chef is previously from Menya Musashi and Menya Kamikaze, so we had high expectations. This is the second outlet, the first one is located in Jaya One.

As we are not very familiar with Sri Petaling, it took us a while to find this place. But basically it's next to Mr Dakgalbi / near Le Pont Boulangerie. The restaurant setup is basic but it is clean and air-conditioned with free Wifi. :P

There are a few soup bases to choose from - black garlic pork soup, spicy pork soup, pork soup, curry pork soup, basil pork soup, or thunder spicy pork soup. Prices start from RM14 for ramen with spring onion and black fungus, and goes up to RM22 with egg and cha siu.

I went for the Kuro Ajitama Chasu Ramen (RM20) - ie the black garlic pork soup ramen, which comes with spring onion, black fungus, egg, 1 piece of pork shoulder, and special sauce. The pork soup, which has been slow boiled for 40 hours was rich and creamy - absolutely delicious! I managed to convince Baby C to share mine with me (she didn't want black soup at the start) and once she tasted the soup, she proclaimed it to be really good. The noodles had an excellent texture too, and the egg was perfectly runny. The chashu was the only thing in the bowl which I felt was ordinary and a bit tough, otherwise a lovely bowl of ramen!

Hubby had the Shiro Shi Shi Ramen (RM22); we had a good laugh when we ordered this as shi-shi means "wee wee" in baby language. This is the original pork soup flavour and comes with spring onion, black fungus, egg, 2 pieces of pork shoulder and special sauce. Again, the soup was rich and creamy, though I do prefer the black garlic flavour.

We also ordered extra noodles (Kaedama - RM4) and 2 extra eggs for the kids (RM3 each). See the mentioned egg - so beautifully runny!

Opening times: 11am - 3pm, 6pm-10pm (Last order 9.30pm)

Price: Total bill RM59.35.

Location: Menya Shi-Shi Do, No. 12A, Jalan Radin Bagus 9, Bandar Baru Sri Petaling, 57000 Kuala Lumpur.

A Ritzy Christmas at The Ritz-Carlton KL

Last week, together with BabySumoKids, we attended the festive preview at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Kuala Lumpur. The creative culinary team led by Executive Chef Zaffar Samad and Head Pastry Chef Nazeri Ismail have designed decadent festive menus, scrumptious gourmet packages for home celebrations and delightful retail gifts to spread the beauty and charm of this festive season.

The kids marvelled at the beautiful festive spread and we sure enjoyed sampling them too. Some of the highlights for us were the Roast Prime Rib, the Gourmet Seafood spread, Beef Wellington, Roast Turkey as well as the adorable festive Afternoon Tea Sets. Read about them in more detail below (after photos).
