Wide range of delicacies to choose from. Being a vegetarian, I tried the veg fare and started with Exotic Vegetables and Corn Dumplings. The translucent coating with the filling of crushed corns and beans, carrots were well steamed. It was served with chilli sauce and it was just too good! I wish they could add more of crushed corns to do justice to the name.

Roasted Cashews and Vegetable Dumplings looked so beautiful. Its green color was quite attractive. Hot dumplings with sesame soya sauce were a true bliss!

Next was Ramenritto, as the name implies, it was a fusion attempt of Ramen and Burrito. Slightly thick wrap filled with noodles was a nice idea. Very filling.

Veg bowl of Ramen as Farmers’ Veg Ramen had all the goodness of fresh veggies like cherry tomatoes, aubergines, mushrooms, thick broth and to top it had the sweet potato fries. Broth was nicely boiled and prepared in the way it should be.

I am yet to try the desserts. But I am sure, they are too at par with the other dishes on the menu. Friends, pick your favourite bowl of hot, comforting Ramen bowl and warm dumplings from Malaka Spice to enjoy your winters. Enjoy!
