Made with fresh shredded vegetables such as cucumber, radish, carrot, Ippudo also adds their own distinct flair with pumpkin, beetroot, Japanese seaweed, deep fried ramen and tempura battered bits to cushion the fresh salmon and coated with their home-made honey lemon sauce, said Tsurayuki Oka, Ippudo Malaysia’s Operations Consultant.

“GrabCar was introduced from the need to provide a convenient and alternative form of transport especially to those in high traffic areas during peak periods. As such, we want to provide the convenience to our customers to still enjoy the important tradition lo hei (tossing of good fortune) with family and friends,” said a GrabCar spokesperson.
