Sure you can feast on a platter of roti canai's from Valentine, lick your fingers after ploughing through a plate of Mollagaa's banana leaf, fornicate with your reflection at the bottom of an empty laksa bowl, or simply lie in bed shoving fatty charsiu in your gluttonous cavity. But after days/weeks/months of doing that, surely you'll crawl to the mirror on a day of self-introspection, see the loss washing over your eyes like cheap paint, and realise that ramen is exactly what you need to wipe clear the cataracts of doubt and fill you with truth once more.
Having a group of friends that are also Ramen-addicts, I find myself waking up to a barrage of texts every morning "Where is the best ramen in KL?", "Authentic Ramen in KL?", "Who does the best ramen in Malaysia?".
As a bonafide broth-martyr, I took it upon myself to carry the cross of noodles down the soupy streets of menma strewn depravity, tasting thirteen different temples of potential truth, and dividing them up into false prophets and stomach profits.
Here they are, in all their glory, from worst to first. And in a country where pork is generally seen as soul death, the term guilty pleasure is even more apt.
