Ichyo Ramen

A fortnight ago, we were (again!) scouting for a place for lunch and it took ridiculously long...especially when it's with me the pickyeater:p I rarely want to eat most of the time so it was kind of a quest to get me moving...haha, and thank God I have this passion to blog right? Even if I don't want to eat, I can take pics and then they can force me to take a bite:p

Anyway, we ended up in Ideal Avenue, near Bukit Jambul.
I have been around this place for some time but I don't think I have tried any restaurants here yet. I was thinking of Jap food (again!) and we decided to check out the Japanese restaurants they have around here; which happens to be more than a few!
I finally set my eye on this Ichyo Ramen which had quite an extensive selection on their menu and then, ended our agonizing hunt:p

And this was something he ordered...hehe...or I asked him to order as it seemed weird that we are in a ramen house and not try out ramen.
I don't like noodles but just curious...hehe
This - the seafood ramen(RM15 or 16)...moderately spicy (we were asked on the level we wanted!)

Slightly battered in some spicy curry sauce and there were cod fish fillets again,mussels, prawns and calamari...ain't that nice:D

And how can I forget my fave Salmon Teriyaki? (RM14) I think...

Ermmm...this teriyaki sauce was actually kinda horrible....one of the worst I have tried...I don't really know how to describe...tasted like it was burnt or something:(

Total bill was about 56++, pretty reasonable for a seafood Japanese meal...but one thing's for sure, we OD on the ordering, too much food...and I am not of much help when it comes to food...hehe:D
Will put this place on my list when I want seafood stuffs at a reasonable price:)
