Ichiran Ramen Pop-Up in KLCC from 13 - 22 March 2020

If you've been to Japan, then you would be familiar with this household name: Ichiran Ramen. This famous ramen franchise needs no introductions for its delicious tonkotsu ramen, ticketing machines and individual sitting booths.

This writer is personally such a huge fan of Ichiran Ramen that she even visited the manufacturing factory in Itoshima to see how it's prepared, packed and shipped out to the rest of the country. She also hunted down two unique Ichiran bowl designs in Fukuoka: the pentagon-shaped bowl of ramen only found at Ichiran Dazaifu Sando and the bento bowl at Tenjin and Canal City outlets. Whilst in Nagasaki, she ate Ichiran ramen five times over the course of a week.

And for her to hear that Ichiran Ramen is making an appearance in Kuala Lumpur is akin to Chris Evans coming to Malaysia. That's right, from 13 to 22 March 2020, the ramen chain will be having its own little pop-up in Isetan KLCC for the first time ever.

Not much information has been shared about this yet but from what we have gathered from other media sources, here are a few things to consider:

  • It will be a 100% tonkotsu-free version, mostly like to mean without pork marrow or bone in the soup.

  • It will feature their famous individual seating booths for an authentic Ichiran experience.

  • Much like its outlets in Japan, queues are to be expected.

It remains unknown for now if they will be bringing over their iconic ticketing machine for a truly authentic experience or if they will be selling any of their merchandise or instant noodles. We will be following this closely (and will mostly be in line for it as well) and will report back when we have more info.
