I have blogged about Hanamaru Udon restaurant, Mid Valley quite some time ago here during their media preview: Yoshinoya & Hanamaru Udon Midvalley, Kuala Lumpur – http://cleffairy.com/yoshinoya-hanamaru-udon-midvalley-kuala-lumpur/

Although they have opened their doors to hungry patrons, they have yet to launch officially. Malaysia welcomed the arrival of Japan’s renowned Yoshinoya and Hanamaru Udon at Mid Valley Megamall today.

The grand launch was officiated by Mr. Yasutaka Kawamura, President and CEO of Yoshinoya Holdings Co. Ltd, Mr. Tetsuya Naruse, CEO of Hanamaru Inc. and Tan Sri Dato’ Seri (Dr) Fumihiko Konishi, Executive Chairman of Texchem Resources Berhad. In true Malaysian fashion, the event was celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by the traditional Lion Dance that symbolises prosperity and luck for new businesses followed by the sampling of the menu.

The flagship store is located at the 3rd floor of Mid Valley Megamall. At 300 square meters, the self-service restaurant offers Yoshinoya on one side and Hanamaru Udon on the other, with Azuki Café in the middle, to quench thirst with drinks inspired by Japanese taste.
