First installation of H-Artistry took off in Penang on Wesak weekend, as most of us are partying with another 2000 more party revelers in this arena. H-Artistry which had begun back as early as 2008 and now this would be the second installment for Penang. Its good to see that the staging and everything is bigger compare to last year, along with an all-new setup, world-class production and a stellar line-up of artists from Hong Kong, Australia and Singapore

We are there as early as 7.30pm right after dinner and head to party scene to check it out. As usual, they are all well organise on the whole event to prevent any massive jam on the queuing.

As for this round, H-Artistry have their new set up which is slightly different from last year, especially on the photobooth. Last year they have the 360Degree signature and this round .. they are back with something classic.

At the main hall, before opening up the main area, all of us are greeted with Hennessy drinks.

 This is the first photobooth known as “Hennessy Moments” at the “Fotobox” with Hennessy Bottle decoration in it and there are 2 of these. One with single shot and another one with multiple shot of 3 seconds for 3 shots(we creatively pose 3 pose) 😀

Right before the main act, the countdown culminated with an electrifying laser show and striking LED visuals, which kicked off the night’s performances with Julie Woon welcoming every one.

Then 24HERBS, surprise  party goers by taking the stage. The Hong Kong hip hop outfit was bursting with energy, drawing the crowd in with their infectious stage presence as they demonstrated the credibility of Canto hip hop.

 With the siau poh’s from Penang  I always party, drink, and eat.. .

Then  after 24Herbs with the dimming of stage lights, Dennis Lau, clad in a laser-projecting jacket – took the stage with his electric violin, bringing the crowd to an all-new high as he started off with a violin introduction of Swedish House Mafia’s hit “Don’t You Worry Child”.

HA (20)

HA (21)

Next act is Andy Murphy went on to administer an astounding set of EDM and Big Room tunes for the next hour, firmly setting the momentum of the night with pulsating beats and fist-pumping drops. Taking over from Andy was Singapore’s biggest female DJ export Nicole Chen, who brought her popular style of Electro House and Dirty Dutch onto the H-Artistry stage. Both DJs’ sets, bolstered in intervals by a gorgeous dance crew and breath taking laser projections, shot the energy levels through the roof at H-Artistry as party goers danced through the night with glasses of Hennessy V.S.O.P in hand.

HA (23)

This is the crazy crowd we are looking at for Penang Revelers. . .

Hennessy night in Penang is fun and of course without this whole group of people, my Hennessy experience would not be complete. . .

Just barely a few weeks old and this place already got a massive publicity. One of the reason is they are the first Ramen restaurant that serve Authentic Kyushu Ramen in Malaysia, as actually means Tonkatsu that boil their soup with pork bone. There are already quite a number of Ramen shop popping up and as a Ramen lover and have tasted very nice ramen overseas, hope this Yamagoya Ramen will fare pretty good too . .

Yamagoya (1)

Not only that, what makes them special as they are also the first outlet of the famous Japanese Chain Ramen Restaurant as they have more than 140 outlets in Japan and this shop had landed in Malaysia as currently operating in Publika, Solaris Dutamas would be their very first outlet.

Yamagoya (2)

As I saw on the wall and people coming into this shop and dine with Chinese Newspaper cutting as I believe some chinese food writter had came by to feature on it and we came in as early as 7.30pm and its full till we left 10.00pm and there are still people coming in.

Yamagoya (3)

Yamagoya (4)

Their ramen is made fresh daily and they weigh the ramen accordingly on the machine to ensure that all are even.

Yamagoya (6)

Here you go, with some choices of the ramen available as this shop purely serve ramen .. .

Yamagoya (7)

This is one of my favourite drink that I often used to drink it as my lunch drink when I was studying overseas that time. Its Calpis WaterRM5.80.

It is a uncarbonated soft drink as the beverage has a light, somewhat milky, and slightly acidic flavor, similar to plain or vanilla-flavored yogurt or Yakult. Its ingredients include water, nonfat dry milk and lactic acid, and is produced by lactic acid fermentation.

The drink is sold as a concentrate which is mixed with water or sometimes milk just before consumption. A pre-diluted version known as Calpis Water “Karupisu Wōtā” (カルピスウォーター?), or its carbonated variety, known as Calpis Soda “Karupisu Sōda” (カルピスソーダ?), are also available. It is also used to flavor kakigori (shaved ice) and as a mixer for cocktails and chuhai. (Source from Wikipedia)

AS a ramen shop, these few sauces its  a must have to make it complete, as I usually like to add in alot of chili oil . .:D

Yamagoya (9)

As a starter, I rarely miss this order Gyoza @ RM 11. If the gyoza is pan fried a bit longer at the bottom till the skin is crips, it can be one of the best so far I have come accross. . .

Yamagoya (10)

This might look like one of ordinary Fried Chicken as the taste is just amazing. Squeeze it with lemon to get a hint of sour taste and dip with Japanese Mayo and the soy sauce at the bottom makes it perfect in taste as the skin is crispy and the chicken meat being fried just perfect as the meat is not too dry. Guess what, our table ended up ordering 3 plates of this. RM11 – highly Recommended!

 

Yamagoya (12)

One of my favorite is to get eggs in my ramen as this is Yamagoya Braised Soya Sauce Egg. If the yolk is not so cook it would be a perfect pair, still good in taste, no complain . [email protected] RM4

Yamagoya (13)

When comes to pork, we will never complain more which less is just only the factor. So we ordered additional 2 plates of Pork Char Siu as this side dish is serve cold compare to the one added into the Ramen. Different in taste though as I prefer mine to be dip into the [email protected] RM11

Yamagoya (11)

If you love garlic taste then this shall be one of the ramen you should hunt for – Black Garlic Ramen @ RM22. Garlic taste is pretty strong in the sweet soup base as just how I like it. – recommended~

Yamagoya (14)

Menma Ramen @  RM22

Yamagoya (15)

Mukashi Special Ramen is a bit mild in taste, with the broth soup that they add in just suits many people taste bud. How I make it more interesting is by adding alot of chili oil then it adds in the kick for me. 😀  RM24

Yamagoya (16)

Fuhhh, one of the super star on our table is this Char Siu Ramen. The strong sweet taste of soup base makes us fight for this bowl of Ramen filled with thin slice of Char Siu. I just love this bowl of soup base.  @ RM24, highly Recommended!

Yamagoya (17)

Another one of my favourite is Spicy Tobanjan Ramen @ RM 22

 

Yamagoya (18)

Well, do not expect the spicyness level is the Malaysian version as remember its authentic from Japan and Japanese taste bud on spicy level is very much different compare to our local palate. After put it in, it taste pretty good and by one scoop of spicy paste you might find it not too kick, why not add in another paste that would have been perfect. (beware that you might spoil the authentic taste of it if you add in 2 paste).

By having one paste it just make the soup a bit spicy and aromatic.  – Recommended~

Yamagoya (20)

A bit of infuse ramen which is Kimchi Ramen, a more korean taste. @ RM22

Yamagoya (21)

There are only 4 of us in the table and look at the amount of Ramen we whack! Its just something I could not resist as this shop have currently top in my list if I am craving for Ramen because of its ramen texture and soup base. Well, if I have to compare to the one I have overseas still cannot be compared and talking bout local, this would be one of the best so far. Would be a highly recommended shop by me. or currently one of the best ramen shop in KL.

REMARKS: please eat the noodle what its serve hot, as the noodle is springy and smooth.. If you leave it a while or more than 5 minutes soak in the soup, the noodle texture had change and become soggy.

Many of us know that 1-Utama is going thru major renovation especially on the old wing. From there, it had attracted many new retailing outlets to be operating in there and now if we go again, you get to see new F&B shops too. One of the newly operated outlet in the mall is this catchy shop that the front is painted red which is very eye catchy in the mall is this Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant as this lot used to be operate by Italianese which I rate one of the best in food among their other outlet.

Watami (19)

First few sips of the soup taste great and addictive as it head towards the end of the base it gets more salty.

Watami (20)

One of my favorite for the night is Wafu Hitokuchi Steak, that is cook medium well, just nice to chew and dip along with the sauce to make it extra kick, yet I still prefer mine to be eaten without the sauce. . 😀

Watami (21)

Tokyo GyudonTokyo Gyudon is beef rice bowl with hot spring egg in Tokyo style. Fine slices of beef being cook along that top with half boil egg Japanese style. 

Watami (22)

Well, Watami certainly offer a nice dining experience especially with their good attentive customer service that they have train for their staff.
