Ru Di Fook Noodle Bar @ Kota Damansara: Chinese-Japanese Fusion Cuisine
When it comes to food heaven, Kota Damansara is one of the pit-stop for many foodies. If you frequent the area enough you'll know you'd be spoiled with all the choices found in Kota Damansara. Just a few days ago, a new restaurant has joined the F&B family in Kota Damansara - Ru Di Fook Noodle Bar.
Ru Di Fook is the brainchild of a group of very experience team, and one of them is Ken Wong who co-founded the 103 Coffee Workshop in Sri Petaling. Some of you folks might find the location of Ru Di Fook to be very familiar. Yes, they took over the corner where Rebellions used to be.
Despite being a noodle bar, Ru Di Fook has taken a very modern twist - both their menu and interior. I like that they kept the glass windows that allows sunlight to shine in. Cosy!! Plus.. nice lighting tends to produce better photos! Don't ya agree?
Coffee lovers, you are in luck! 103 Coffee Workshop serves one of the best coffee in town, and you can now enjoy their coffee at Ru Di Fook!!! Personally, I'm a happy girl right now!
Ru Di Fook is currently still under-going a soft launch period, but I had the chance to take a peak on some of their dishes!
Umeshu Plum Tomato (RM 9.80). I've had plum tomatoes years ago and fell in love with this side dish ever since. Sweet and juicy tomatoes soaked in plum sauce that was intensified by the Umeshu. It definitely awakens my taste bud and we finished the entire plate in few minutes! I definitely recommend this if you are looking for a light side dish that will kick-start your appetite at the same time too.
Fried Namyu Belly (RM 17). Juicy and tender fried namyu pork with black fungus puree. When served, I felt the pork looked dry but it turned out to be very tender and I could taste the namyu marinate. The best part? The pork belly wasn't even greasy after the dish cool down.
Kung Fu Mushroom (RM 10.80). Varieties of crispy fried Shimeij and Oyster mushroom served with plum aioli.
Fried Herby Spiced Wings (RM 20.80). Crispy, herbs and spice marinated chicken wings. Though I like how crispy and juicy the wings are, I felt they could use a tad more seasonings.
Wealthy Wantan - RM 3(6pcs), RM 10(6pcs), RM 15(10pcs). A bowl of piping hot boiled pork wanton soup was so comforting.
Wantan Mee (RM 4). I've never liked wantan mee, but I LOVE THIS A LOT!! It might be a small bowl, but the noodles were super springy and the house dressing was bursting with umami flavours. I seriously can probably eat 4-5 bowl of the wantan mee. A super-duper highly recommended dish at Ru Di Fook!
Horlicks Banana Crumble (RM 20.80) - three of my favourite things. Horlicks crumble, banana, whipped cream and creamy malt ice cream; I seriously can't choose which I like best! This is one dessert I'll go back for.
Tian Mimi Chawanmushi (RM 12.80). Soft and creamy soy custard topped with barley, ginko and crispy fuzuk. If you don't have a sweet tooth yet still want to have some dessert, this is certainly a good one to try out.
On top of your usual coffee and tea, Ru Di Fook serves cocktails and craft beer too. Ain't these Hitachino Nest Beer (RM 31/bottle) just too cute?!!
There are 5 flavours and we had the Saison Du Japon (RM 31). It has yuzu, honey, citrus and sweet spice. I like yuzu but I personally don't fancy the bitter after-taste of the beer. Then again, I'm not really a beer person. So, if you enjoy drinking beer, give these a try and let me know your thoughts!
Ru Di Fook has given all their dishes a very modern twist along with Japanese influence. Judging from the portion, I feel the pricing is a bit steep for the dishes, but I'm more than willing to pay for the noodles. They were so yummy and I'm craving for it right now as I'm writing this post!!!
Ru Di Fook will be having their grand launching on the 7th April 2017 (Friday). In conjunction with their launch, they are giving out FREE 100 coffee on first come first serve basis. The promotion starts from 7/4/2017 to 9/4/2017. Also, for dine in only, with a minimum purchase of RM10, you'll be entitled to a free coffee too!
