Top 10 Best Ramen In Sabah 2023

Ramen noodle is a worldwide delicacy; however, it is prepared and cooked, and we love them for how it is. Ramen noodle was popularised thanks to the Japanese but originated in China, whereby the Chinese made this noodle from wheat. The Chinese would call it La Mian (拉面), whereas the Japanese would call it Ramen (ラーメン). When ramen noodles were migrated to Japan, they underwent many variations and ways of cooking that, until today, can be seen in traditional and modern Japanese eateries.   

In Malaysia, ramen dishes are no strangers. Malaysians adore ramen just as much as the Japanese and Chinese love them. As a result, we can see many Japanese eateries that sell ramen dishes sprout in the country. In Sabah, eating ramen dishes is not hard, as many Japanese restaurants serve them. This article lists the 10 best ramen in Sabah 2023 you must try.

What does ramen noodle taste like?

Ramen noodles are pleasantly chewy and bouncy in texture. This characteristic is what makes it different from other noodles. It can be in any shape and size. Its common colour is pale yellow. However, coloured ramen like green or pink are also very popular. This noodle by itself doesn’t contribute to any taste, but the types of broths it is put into are where the flavour profiles are.

Why are ramen dishes so good?

The broth of ramens can vary, and each broth has its unique taste and aroma. Usually, the broths are thick, creamy and have an in-depth flavour of the protein it is cooked with, such as pork. These pleasant and not overwhelming flavours are why so many people find ramen dishes so good. Furthermore, the chewiness of the ramen contributes to a great texture experience. And dining isn’t just about the taste of the food, but also its complementing texture.
