Ippudo ramen restaurant, famed for its delicious ramen, recently launched its full-range Japanese bar at Bangsar Shopping Centre. Presenting their launch was Ippudo Regional Operations consultant Tomo Kudo, who hopes to introduce Japanese bar culture to discerning Malaysians. I have never been to Japan, and was eager to soak in Ippudo’s vision of the heart of Tokyo. According to Tomo-san, Ippudo wanted to give Malaysians a taste of Japan’s famous nightlife, right here in Kuala Lumpur. To do so, Ippudo had reserved an outdoor area, next to their restaurant, complete with a dedicated bar, high tables , wine chiller and bar shelves to display authentic Japanese alcohol.
