It's time for Ramen

April, my daddy's month, as well as mine; like our past years, we always celebrate our big day together since it's only 5 days apart. 
We, family yet without my brother-in-law went to Paragon for good food; we were so lucky to find ourselves a good parking lot, maybe the time was still early when we reached the place. Paragon was actually having a function, some sort like dancing in a group, Penang is always happening, love it.
That's where we were heading for, Goku Raku Ramen; too bad I didn't make a reservation before that, and it was full house that time. We supposed need to wait for another 45 minutes to get our turn, ended up they let us jump the queue and get us in, lucky no? 
Photo taken while waiting them to clean table for us. Goku Raku Ramen has gained its good reputation via outlet at Mid Valley before coming in Penang, they name themselves as "The Ramen Heaven" because they serve the best broths for Ramen, thick and creamy.
The menu, wood-like yet it's not handy enough; at the end of menu, they even put some instruction how you should enjoy the ramen.
A little surprise from them, when they placed your order, they will bring a temporary receipt for you, with a cutie clip on top! Lovely!
They decorated the shop with this, fake plant, on our seat and also the wall. Not much seats are provided, as the restaurant is not huge.
The open-air kitchen with all-white concept; these make the environment seems steamy as the gas flow out from the kitchen to outside.
Every table will have wood basket to placed all the mess kits and napkins.
Random snap on the basket and the logo of Goku Raku Ramen.
Let's start with the food now! Until end of April, they are actually having a promotion, each Large size Ramen are giving 50% off.
The signature: Goku Raku Ramen . RM18.90 (small); RM23.90 (large)
The Goku Raku broth noodles are topped with Char Siew, flavored egg, bamboo shoots, leeks, onion and seaweed. With these, they named this as The Ramen Haven, worth to try tho! The flavored egg is awesome with its velvety yolk. 
Jantama Ramen . RM14.90 (small); RM18.90 (large)
Noodles in Goku Raku sauce topped with shredded Char Siew, Soft boiled-egg, leeks, spring onions and chopped chicken. They are good in cooking good egg which all are marinated with special sauce.
Goku Raku Miso Ramen . RM19.90 (small); RM24.90 (large)
Miso Goku Raku broth noodles topped with cabbage, minced pork, flavored egg and fragrant garlic oil. I must admit that the noodle are the best Ramen I'd ever tasted, I'm not really into Ramen if compare to Udon, yet this noodle type ramen changes my mind.
Flower decoration near the counter, the restaurant is in red and yellow, just like the color in their logo.
Four of us ordered large size ramen, as the price was even cheaper than the small size one, and the portion for the large one is only 150g noodle. Had some chit chat with the cashier while waiting they settle my bills, nice to talk with friendly him.
