Calling Out All Vegetarians! Here's Where You Can Get Your Samurai Ramen In JB!

"Throughout ramen, we aim to cross the boundary of taste and spread the unique authentic taste of Japanese ramen." 
- Samurai Ramen

The yearnings of all ramen-loving Malaysians have been satisfied! Prayers have been answered! Callings have been heard! Originally starting off in Japan, Samurai Ramen finally made its debut in Johor Bahru bringing down their much-loved authentic Japanese ramen!


If you grew up watching Japanese anime like me, that showcased a lot of characters enjoying ramen you would know that this specific kind of Samurai Ramen is cooked with the amalgamation of premium top quality soup, prepared to perfection with precisely chopped vegetables and a whole load of spices that blend impeccably together with the remaining components along with the highlight of the dish that stands out the most – the noodles.

If you're a die-hard vegan devotee, amongst the other Halal food restaurants in Johor Bahru, the new Samurai Ramen Umami restaurant would be your idyllic spot to get your Ramen cravings fulfilled. Not only do they have their own outlet in Johor Bahru but you are also presented with the opportunity of purchasing it online.


What distinguishes Samurai Ramen from the other various sorts of Ramen?

For starters, it is 100% vegetarian which does not encompass any animal, alcohol, addictive, MSG, chemicals or any added preservatives, placing you on the better path of healthier living as it is gentle to the body with a low-calorie count. Even though the Samurai Ramen is not part of the 'Halal food JB' clique with an exact halal certification it would be deemed essential to be mindful of the healthy benefits it entails and brings about.

The Gold Box

The "gold box" version of the Samurai Ramen Umami which signifies the gold leaf of the golden tea room of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who received the peak as a samurai, has now become a souvenir purchased by foreign travelers. These gold packages of Ramen are ideal for gifts thanks to the striking outlook of the packaging.

What is Included?

One would find bamboo chopsticks, noodles, soup paste and chili powder which comprise the contents of this packet. For newbies who are learning the art of cooking, there is also a direction manual in the box assisting you through every step of the way.

As instant as it is you don't have to worry about spending time and sweating it out over the stove mixing pots and pans until your hands go numb because this ramen can be whipped up in just approximately 5 minutes! 

You can even customize the topping of your end masterpiece to your heart's desire (and then maybe boast about it on social media along with the 101 pictures that you took of it).

However, be wary of the remaining ramen left in the packet. Store it in a location where it is not attracted by direct sunlight and to be on the safe side it would be best if it is stored at normal temperature in an airtight container until it is ready to be cooked again.

How Can You Buy Samurai Ramen? Online & Offline

If you're feeling too lackluster to dress fancy and actually visit the restaurant, worry not. Online ordering has got you covered through which you are able to purchase Samurai Ramen in your pajamas and whip it up instantaneously in the comfort of your own kitchen.
