Food Review: Torimaru Ramen at Ramen Champion Bugis+

Tori Paitan Ramen (Creamy Chicken Soup Ramen) is a latest ramen fad in Japan, after Tonkotsu Ramen's popularity in the past years. This rich and creamy chicken soup is one of the most famous in Japan right now! They are joining the big family in Ramen Champion!


Torimaru is helmed by Chef Takano Koji who has undergone intense trainings under Chef Koji Tashiro, founder of Menya Koji Group, Japan. Mainly they're two different types of noodles are used at Torimaru; thin yellow noodles for the ramens and thick white noodles for the tsukemen (dipping noodles). The standard topping of Torimaru Paitan Ramen includes Tender Chicken Breast Chashu, Homemade Chicken Meat Balls, Ajitama (Seasoned Soft‐boiled eggs), Negi (Japanese Leek), and Nori (Dried Seaweed). Chicken breast is used for the chashu due to its low fat content; it is the perfect match to Tori Paitan Ramen.

The special homemade Chicken Meat Balls are refreshing due to some of its ingredients like ginger & chicken soft bone for different textures. Tori Paitan (Creamy Chicken Soup), the star of Torimaru is packed with collagen that is nourishing. The creamy white broth is achieved by robust boiling over high temperatures, along with five kinds of chicken parts (including large amounts of chicken feet) and along with five kinds of vegetables for over ten hours. Torimaru's Ramen strictly contains NO PORK, NO LARD; you can enjoy pure chicken goodness in its creamy chicken broth.

Signature Special Chicken Ramen, the highly recommended ramen by the Chef Takano Koji's. The ramen came with the standard topping which i mentioned above. The creamy chicken broth was really addictive; i simply drink finish the whole bowl of the soup before i am done with my ramen, i even asks for refill of the soup!

Next we move on to the Special Chicken Tsukemen (Dipping Noodle). Unique way of eating ramen, usually you will only able to see dipping noodle in Soba form but now they are trying a new way of eating ramen. Everything on this bowl was cold except for the meatballs and the dipping soup. I find that the thick noodle texture was under-cook and not that springy and chewy. The dipping broth was more on the salty side, after you had finished your noodle, they will add dashi soup to your dipping soup! After added, the undrinkable broth became alive! The broth tasted light and full of flavors.


My Verdict:
This new collagen ramen is definitely worth the try and i will be back for more of it! The ladies will definitely love it too, as the collagen is high in protein and is good for the skin. You can have good food and pamper your health at the same time!

Market Restaurant in Legoland Malaysia offer a wide range selection of Asian and Western cuisine. For Asian food choices, you can go for their Chicken Biryani or chicken rice. They focus more on chicken meat food as they restaurant are halal certified! For western food choices, you can go for their lamb shanks and fish and chips which this two dishes are the popular dish among the western food category.



The indoor seating is perfect on warm days or enjoy the shaded outdoors seating with a great view of the Park Nasi Biryani - The highlight dishes’s Nasi Biryani came with a large chicken thigh portion, achar and a bowl of Biryani rice. Likewise, the tender and juicy curry chicken thigh complementary with the sweet spicy sauce that match the Biryani rice well.


Next recommended dishes will be the lamb shank stew which came with a huge lamb shank, creamy mashed potato, sauteed mushroom, cherry tomato and vegetables topped up with mushroom sauce. This is the most tender lamb shank dishes that i had ever tried at Legoland Malaysia. Hence, the meat was easily peel off from the bone and was fully absorbed the strong flavor of mushroom sauce. The creamy mashed potato was creamy and savoury.

My Verdict
I enjoyed my experience dining at market restaurant. I highly recommend everyone to try their signature dishes – The Nasi Biryani and Lamb Shank. Trust me, you won't be disappoint. Next thing i like about the market restaurant at Legoland Malaysia was their spacious and artistic interior design.

    Acronis sharpen data protection with Blockchain Technology

    Acronis announced a strategic initiative to develop applications of Blockchain technology for data protection. It has formed a dedicated research and development team that is initially focused on delivering ‘tamper-proof’ data storage with verifiable sync and share solutions that leverage Blockchain to guarantee data authenticity, privacy and control.

    The groundbreaking Blockchain technology, which provides a record of digital events distributed across different participants or entities, has the potential to open up a broad range of new data protection use cases for businesses and organizations worldwide.

    Blockchain Promises Huge Potential for Data Protection
    Today's digital world contains a huge number of assets whose originality and ownership are difficult and costly to define and track. Blockchain can solve this problem by providing global authenticity and security for data and transactions of any kind, reducing the cost and complexity of centralized systems while making data ‘tamper-proof’. With Blockchain, data and transactions can only be updated by rules of consensus between participants in the system, and when new data is entered, it can never be erased.

    Acronis to Apply Blockchain Technology to Deliver ‘Tamper-Proof’ Data Protection
    Acronis is taking a unique and targeted approach at how Blockchain can be used to solve specific data protection problems by seeking and developing use cases that exist today. Data and transactions that are protected from tampering by Blockchain can be used for those use cases where individuals or businesses absolutely must maintain the integrity of the original information.

    For example, Acronis is currently extending its data storage solutions and file sync and share solutions with Blockchain technology to monitor data integrity and guarantee validity at all times. Examples of data that can be protected from tampering using Blockchain include property and medical records, stock transfers, chain-of-evidence for court documents, police video or security camera footage, long-term archiving that could be subject to IT audits, and ‘consortium’ data storage, where multiple individuals or entities can securely store and exchange massive amounts of data and information.

    Acronis Data Authentication ‘Prototype’ Using Blockchain Now Available
    As part of the initiative, Acronis is unveiling a prototype solution to give its service provider partners and end user customers an introduction to the power of Blockchain technology for data protection. The prototype shows an example of how Blockchain can be used to verify and protect data with timestamps and certificates of authenticity. By making the prototype available to the public, Acronis is seeking input on potential data protection use cases for Blockchain technology. Participants will be ask for their name and contact info in an effort to better understand the market need and potential of Blockchain for data protection.
