If You're in Japan, Don't Miss Out on Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle Restaurant!

Have you ever tasted something so good that you wanted to learn how to make it? Well, Takeru Seino definitely did! Takeru is the manager of Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle Restaurant. While studying in Beijing, he fell in love with the Lanzhou lamian (a type of Chinese handmade noodles) that he ate during his stay. After returning home, he tried various ways to recreate the Lanzhou noodles, but that resulted in mutiple failed attempts.

And so, he went on a trip to Lanzhou in search for a Lamian shop that would be willing to train him to make these delicious noodles. At last, he came across Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle restaurant. After much persuasion, Mazulu agreed to train him and he finally mastered the skill of handcrafting these noodles to perfection and later opened his own shop in Japan.

Mazulu Halal Beef Noodle restaurant was established over 100 years ago and is situated along the ancient Silk Road. One interesting feature about this restaurant is that they are the only Lanzhou Lamian shop that is certified by the Chinese government as "China Time-honored Brand."

What's more, they even had the honourable opportunity of being featured on a well-known gourmet documentary called "A Bite of China (Shejianshang de Zhongguo)." Truly, Mazulu is the best Lanzhou Beef Noodle shop in Japan, and it is no wonder that their noodles are ranked "Special Grade"! Not to mention, they're awarded an AAA grade by Crescentrating as well.

As its name suggests, this Halal restaurant is known for their signature beef noodles, where every component of the dish is crucial and given careful attention. Their noodles in particular are hand stretched by craftsmen using wheat flour dough. They come in three different thicknesses - thin (hosomen), regular (hiramen) or triangular (sankakumen). For those of you who naturally have a small appetite, the staff would highly recommend you to try their thinnest noodles so that the portion of noodles is just right for you.

Upon crafting the noodles, everything is drenched in hot soup that is made by simmering beef bones with 10 different medicinal spices for hours on end. Not forgetting, the ramen is then garnished with coriander, leaf garlic, beef, radishes and topped off with Chinese chili oil. Indeed, the crunchy radishes are a great mix to all the delicious chewy noodles! For those of you who cannot handle spicy food, don't be deterred by the red colour of the chilli oil because the chilli is not too spicy.

The beef noodles are sold at an affordable price of just 1000 yen, and extra coriander or beef will only cost you an additional 120 yen and 200 yen respectively. That's a bargain considering the generous portion you're served! To get an authentic taste of Japan, we would highly recommend that you pair your Lamian noodles with a cup of green tea.

Do note that the queue at this restaurant is usually pretty long but your waiting time shouldn't take more than 30 minutes. The friendly staff (who are fluent in English and Japanese) are always making the effort to ensure that the tables are cleared quickly so that customers do not need to wait very long.
