Imagine how delighted I was when I discovered this Japanese restaurant which offers budget delicious japanese nudles. Tucked away in a quiet corner, Hachiban is located diagonally opposite Kluang Station.
We were first attracted by the colourful menu which depicts a wide array of nudles, set meals and snacks, all within the price range of RM3 to RM13. So cheap!
Now that you know how broke we are, we only ordered a value set meal and one side dish to share...haha
We had the Karamen set (RM11.50) which came with a plate of minced meat ramen, a plate of gyoza (5 pieces!!!) and a glass of ice lemon tea.
They claimed that all nudles served are hand made. Char siew bao commented that the nudle strands taste like instant nudles but they are springy, great to go with minced meat and crunchy bean sprouts (Actually I'm not aware that Japanese like taugeh too?)
The gyozas were nicely pan fried. Tasted like how it should taste like. Great value for money!
We had another side dish of agedashi tofu (RM3.80).
Overall, though the food are not superb but not bad too considering the pricing. Will definitely revisit very soon, how can you resist cheap Japanese Food?
