Marufuku Udon @ Jaya One, PJ

Marufuku is a newly opened sister branch of the ever-popular Sanuki Udon from Taman Desa.

Opened in Jaya One, Petaling Jaya during mid of October 2010, this new restaurant features simple yet soothing bowl of authentic udon at an affordable price.

Good food and really good prices are sometimes mutually exclusive, but not always. That's the case at Marufuku which is tucked away in a corner just right behind Frontera.

Marufuku during the busy weekdays is like a fast food chain. Place your orders at the counter, add your own toppings, pay the bills and carry it over to your table. Only during night time and weekends, they are more laid back and orders are taken at the table.

A wider range of udon varieties are introduced in Marufuku's menu. Luckily, the udon is pretty much consistent with Sanuki since it is freshly made daily at Sanuki and delivered over.

Curry udon (RM 8), with cubes of potatoes, carrots, sprinkled with chopped scallions and served with an egg (RM 1). Was hoping there'll be an improvement in their curry udon but I guessed not. Didn't really like it that much, it was quite bland and hardly any curry gravy in it. But it doesn't matter at all, the fresh chewy texture of the udon simply made up for it.

Nabeyaki udon (RM 10), served in a simmering hot pot with prawn tempura, egg, mushrooms, taupok (beancurd skin) and dumplings. With a touch of local Malaysia flavor, you may call it fusion.

Niku udon (RM 10) with tender beef slices, onions, choy sum and sprinkled with chopped scallions.

The beef slices were tenderly tasty and it added an extra sweetness to the light kelp-based soup. Even though the soup was very little, the portions of beef slices and udon noodles were sufficiently satisfying.

Oyako udon (RM 9) with boneless chicken meat, mixed with a raw egg and spinkled with chopped spring onions - Oyako means "parents and children" and the chicken is clearly the parent of the egg.

Karaage (RM 3), chunks of boneless chicken meat lightly battered and deep fried till piping hot tender and juicy. This is definitely one of the must-have side dish, I'll usually do a double! It was really heart-stopping tasty and juicy!

Kakiage ebi (RM 3), deep fried vegetables mixed with tiny prawns. Having it just like that, it'll be light and not entirely crispy. It'll be better when you dip it into the soup soaking up all the goodness.

Just like Sanuki, Marufuku offers yakitori only after 5pm. Ranging from RM 2-3 per skewer, you can choose to have your yakitori grilled in either a soy-based sauce or salt. From left to right: Kawa (chicken skin) yakitori (RM 2), juicy grilled chicken skin goodness - the heart attack in a stick! Momo (chicken leg meat) yakitori (RM 3), tender juicy chunks of boneless chicken leg meat. Bonjiri (bishop nose / chicken backside!) yakitori (RM 2), probably the best yakitori meat from the list. It was scandalously smooth and juicy!

Zuri (chicken gizzard) yakitori (RM 2), with a muscular, chewy and crunchy texture. If you're into chicken inner parts, then you're in for a treat with other parts like kimo (liver) and hatsu (heart).

For dessert, daifuku with red beans (RM 4), small round mochi (glutinous rice cake) stuffed with vanilla ice-cream. Didn't know daifuku was THAT small.

Verdict: Definitely will be one of my usual place to eat in my neighborhood. Totally worth the money and satisfying with a sense of comfort after slurping down a hot bowl of freshly made udon.

    Hi may I know is this place near Chinatown?


  4. russel Said,'> December 6, 2010 at 5:54 PM

    Chinatown in KL city center? It's actually quite far off. You can actually take the LRT (Putra Line) train from Pasar Seni station (nearest to Chinatown) and exit off at Asia Jaya. Then, take a cab from there, it's about 5-10 mins drive away from the station.

    Ok thanks alot! Haha do you happen to know of any eating places around bukit bintang with good and reasonable pricing food?


  6. russel Said,'> December 7, 2010 at 1:03 AM

    If you're a tourist, I would recommend - even though it might not be cheap but at least you're getting all the good local food under one roof. Alternatively, at Jalan Imbi hawker stalls or Jalan Alor - no longer as nice as before but along the stretch, you'll find some popular stalls selling fish head noodles, curry noodles, rice wine chicken noodles, Ah Wah grilled chicken wings and beef noodles.

    Marufuku's 2nd outlet @ Taylors University ( is now open. This location is very breezy as there is a nice lake next to it. Perfect for a relaxing week nights' dinner and weekends' getaway. We are open daily from 10 to 10. Ample car parking space, so come and enjoy a simple bowl of udon with the lake view. (We are close on 19th and 26th for minor reno work. Thank you.)
