Lao Jiu Lou 老酒楼, Taman Bukit Desa, KL

The owner of Sanuki Udon (our fav udon place in KL!) has opened another outlet in Taman Bukit Desa - Lao Jiu Lou 老酒楼, just a few doors away from Sanuki Udon. We gave this place a try a couple of weeks ago.

The restaurant's simple decor has a Oriental feel to it, with red tables, benches and red lanterns. The food is inspired by fusion Chinese-Japanese dishes from Yokohama, which is home to Japan’s largest Chinatown. Here you will find affordable ramen, gyoza, char siu, as well as steamed prawns and chicken.

The prices of ramen here start from as low as RM8, however do not expect the rich slow-boiled pork broth here. Hubby ordered the minced pork ramen (RM8) which reminds us a lot of Hakka mee. It's pretty tasty and we liked the flavoured egg a lot. Perfectly runny inside.

Since it was a very hot afternoon, I went for the zaru ramen (RM10). The ramen is served cold with wakame, sliced wood ear fungus, cucumber, a slice of char siu and half a flavoured egg. Pretty good value for money.

Chinese tea (RM1) and sugarcane tea (RM2)

Opening times: Tue-Sun 11:30am-9:30pm; closed on Mondays.

Price: Total bill RM21.

Location: Lao Jiu Lou 老酒楼 Old Restaurant, 25, Jalan Bukit Desa 5, Taman Bukit Desa, 58100 Kuala Lumpur.

GPS Coordinates: 3.11074, 101.68479

  1. Mmm, this looks so fresh and delicious.

  2. Hakka mee indeed, your hubby's order. Ooooo...I'm eyeing that slice of pork in 2nd last pic. Slurpsssss!!!!

  3. Oh, I did go to Yokohama before & had lunch in the Chinatown. By just looking at the name of the restaurant, I would have thought that this is a Chinese restaurant. The cold ramen looks really good there!

  4. Zaru-ramen for Rm10 sounds very affordable!

  5. Wow that all looks so good. Sugar cane products is something I really miss in New Zealand :(

  6. Nice place and the food seems affordable !

  7. Give their steamed chicken a try...a full chicken thigh n drumstick on top of naba cabbage with flat noodles (hor fun) in a slightly saltish-savoury broth...a steal at RM10...hehe =)

  8. Thanks for sharing information on all these restaurants. My family and I have tried some of those restaurants. Keep up the good work. Take care.

  9. Everything looks so good. :P The cold noodle is perfect for a hot day too!

  10. looks like a very pleasant and peaceful afternoon at Lao Jiu Lou :D

  11. What reasonable prices! And it looks like a soothing place for a nice lunch.

  12. I haven't tried their ramen yet, I always order the steamed chicken and special rice, hehe.
