Located in Intermark Hotel along Jalan Tun Razak, Hanare is a great stop for mid-day udon with a colleague or a friend. The restaurant is quiet and boasts a Japanese authenticity, especially in its menu. The Inaniwa Tsuke Udon (RM40) has a much thinner make than regular udon, but you'll find new enjoyment in the light, cold noodles dipped in the side of clear, soothing chicken soup. The small portion can be underwhelming so perhaps opt instead for the full-fledged lunch set. For RM110, the sumptuous Hiru Kaiseki lunch course includes appetisers, fresh-cut sashimi, chawan mushi, tempura, udon and dessert to finish.
Avg Price: RM90
