Taro Ramen, Sungei Wang Shopping Complex

One day after working hours, 3 of us headed over to Sungei Wang to get a few *coughcoughDVDscoughcough*. For dinner, I suggested Madam Wong's Cafe which was recommended by Babe In The City KL, one of my favourite food blogger who did a review of that place in Sept'06. Was mentally deciding whether to taste the Marmite Chicken or Supreme Pork Rib Rice when suddenly upon arrival at the shopfront, 1 of my friends exclaimed "Aiyo, this place is it? Came before-lar with so & so. So-so (meaning edible standard) only-lar". Upset but with tummy making angry noises, I did not protest much but made a quiet promise ie. I will return without you! So, we went nextdoor.We were quite early, I guess, as the tables were still empty and the waitresses/waiters were chatting away at a corner. Nevertheless, once seated the service was fast and attentive. In between I noticed they were whispering about my taking pictures of the food. My actions were very obvious especially when my companions kept reminding each other not too softly not to touch the food until satisfactory portraits were taken! TQ guys. Actually, quite shy-oh.
Lucky for that friend, we found the food there good. The 3 of us had Green Tea (refillable/bottomless. Guess that's why it's RM1.50 per glass) with the following individual bowls of ramen (I can't remember the names - forgot to take pictures of the menu). Pictures from top to bottom:- Beef Ramen. Mine. Tender beef slices. Good. Miso Ramen. Well, I'm not a fan of Miso soup, so I prefer the Beef Ramen without a doubt. Spicy Ramen. This I believe was featured very prominently in the menu (highly recommended?). We agreed that was the best of the lot (of those we ordered, that is). Kids stay away as it was hot (spicy)! That red colour soup was not for show.These were additional orders (for the record, we did struggle a bit with the udon as all the noodles servings were quite generous).
Edamame (credit to Honey Star for reminding me of the name) and Yaki Udon. I only managed to bite into 2 pieces of the beans as my companions were fast workers. The udon tasted bland to me but maybe it's because I was already quite full after my bowl of Beef Ramen. But all of us agreed that it was a tad too oily.

Excuse me, just to check. Are my pictures too dark or is it just my monitor?
