Sapporo (Again!?!)

UPDATE:
Shop cannot be found anymore. *sigh*

UPDATE:
Early 2007 (at least that's when I heard about it), it had been relocated to a lot apposite the location featured here. I've yet to visit but heard they've maintained the drap environment as well as the special offer of 50% discount.

This place had received mountainous (is there such a word?) loads of review, mostly praises from the local food bloggers community. That's why I titled it Sapporo (Again?!) to reflect the reactions of majority to this post. Nevertheless, please allow me a short post as a self reminder. Fellow bloggers, please put the links to your previous reviews of this place in under comments as I am too lazy to link them myself. Thank you in advance. :)

I found the place quite dodgy - gave me the feeling of sad & neglect. Maybe that's why there's no other customers and the waitress (maybe was the ladyboss) was at the doorway waving to attract passer-bys. Or maybe it was due to the odd hour - almost 3pm. If not because of the good reviews from bloggers, I would have skipped away.

Phitoy & I had Gyoza, Beef Ramen & Cool Ramen washed down by green tea & lou hon kuo (Buddha's fruit drink? It's a Chinese Herbal Tea). I must say a very big thank you to all who recommended this place. Love the food, love the price. Other friends who went after I passed the word around found it good too.

An intermediate shoplot located behind Federal Hotel, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.

I've been there too but though the food isn't bad (is the 50% off ramen still on?) the lingering smell of oil on clothes turns me off :( But I agree its great value with the 50% off.

tuktoyaktuk, yes it was still on. Quite sad to have good food at such a lousy environment, isn't it?

it's probably fighting to survive as people will rather eat at the chan tengs that dot that area.
