Udon Kobo Min Min is a new Japanese restaurant which specializes in Japanese Udon Noodles. There are many different ways of udon dishes at Udon Kobo Min Min. They have the soup base and the dry (cold or hot) udons. Each are different in terms of its sauces and toppings.
We ordered Mentaimayo Udon at RM17.90. The Mentaimayo Udon is the cold udon noodles mixed with a creamy blend of cod roe and mayonnaise. The udon noodles were chewy and soft. The texture is dense and it has a neutral flavor to it as I could taste the saltiness of the cod roe and the sweetness of the mayonnaise which were coating the udon noodles.
The rice dishes comes in mini size and big size. The prices for the mini and big sizes are between RM9.90 to RM 12.90 (for mini size) and RM16.90 to 20.90 (for big size). This is the Yakiniku Don (mini size), rice topped with thinly sliced pork stir-fried in a special sauce. The pork slices were very flavorful and tasty. It was sweet and savory. Lots of onions were used in this dish and they gave good amount of the special sauce.
Other than udon noodles and rice, Udon Kobo Min Min also serves some side dishes. The only sashimi they have on the menu is the Salmon Sashimi. For your information, only the top-grade fresh salmon are used. For 5 slices of salmon sashimi, it only costs you RM18.90. The sashimi salmon slices that we had were amazing. Just looking at the bright red colour of the sashimi salmon is enough to convince me that this salmon is fresh. The salmon sashimi pairs very well with some wasabi paste and soy sauce.
Some other side dishes we had at Udon Kobo were the Onsen Tamago, Chawanmushi and Gyoza. The Onsen Tamago @ RM3.00 is the poached egg served in a light tasty sauce and the Chawanmushi @RM6.90 is the silky steamed Japanese egg. As we had both together, it is clear that the onsen tamago is the better choice. Not because it is cheaper, but it taste better. It was smooth and softer in texture when compared to the chawanmushi. The special sauce used in this dish is no ordinary soy sauce. I have no idea what it was but it has a saltish taste and it was sweet at the same time. As for the gyoza, the pan-seared pork and vegetable Japanese dumplings, it would be better if they enhance the flavor.
For desserts, we ordered the Mizu Mochi at RM6.90, a Japanese clear cold jelly served with brown sugar syrup and roasted soy powder. This dish is quite unique. The clear jelly itself is tasteless. As for the soy powder, it tastes like toasty chocolate hazelnut.
The other dessert we had was the Yuzu Sherbet at RM5.90. I highly recommend this yuzu sherbet on a hot day. Great combination of the acidity and sweetness of this dessert.
Now for the best part. You may upgrade your lunch by making your ala-carte order a set. How? Just order any one of Udon Kobo Min Min’s udon noodles and choose any of the 6 options available. All this starting from only RM15.90.
They made their udon noodles fresh every day and its udon noodles are even available for sale for those who would like to purchase raw fresh udons.
