Satisfy Your Ramen Craving In These Restaurants
They’ll hit the spot every single time
If there was a season to eat ramen, it’s the wet season. The warm broth and spicy flavors are a perfect match to the cool breeze and pitter-pattering of the rain. And this is exactly why we wouldn’t judge you if you’ve been craving for the dish a little more recently, we’re on the same boat.
Ippudo Ramen Restaurant
With branches in SM Megamall, SM Mall Of Asia, Robinsons PlaceManila, Uptown Mall and Eastwood Mall
It’s been a few years since Ippudo officially opened in Philippine shores and yet it’s remained a staple in the minds of many Ramen-enthusiasts. The broth, which is cooked for some 15 hours, is rich and flavorful, the noodles are firm yet thin and the toppings are simply mouthwatering. You’ll enjoy every sip, bite and slurp.
With branches in SM Aura, Robinson’s Place Manila, Robinsons Magnolia, Greenbelt 3, UP Town Center, SM Mall of Asia, SM City North EDSA, SM City Pampanga and The Podium
As arguably one of the most popular ramen chains in the Metro, Ramen Nagi has a lot to live up to. And yet, each visit can be completely different from the other. The best thing about the franchise is that it allows you to personalize your dish based on toppings. Every experience can be new if you let it and any combination you try will still be a great one.
Yoshida Seimen Yokohama Ramen
130 Amorsolo Street, Legazpi Village, Makati
Despite being surrounded by other Japanese restaurants, Yoshida is still one of the more popular choices to take. It’s a simple place, with endearing interiors and strong food dishes to try. The ramen is a little different because it has relatively unseen ingredients like corn kernels and mushrooms. Despite this, you won’t feel too far off the traditional mark.
Hokkaido Ramen Santouka
With branches in SM Mall of Asia and Promenade
If choice ingredients are what tide you over, there’s no better option than Hokkaido Ramen. To be more specific, grab a bowl of ramen with the roasted pork cheeks. The meet is very delicate but your mouth will be filled with flavor. It’s a previous part of the pig and you’ll definitely taste the difference.
Molito Commercial Complex, Alabang, Muntinlupa City
The idea behind Yushoken was to bring a genuine ramen experience to Manila and we say it’s pretty close to the real thing. The restaurant itself features ramen dishes exclusively, with some select side dishes that are there to only enhance your ramen-eating experience. All dishes are served with the same base broth, but differ in terms of strength and toppings.
Forbestown Road, Taguig
There’s nothing wrong with a classic, but sometimes you just want to get your mouth into something that breaks the mold and this is exactly where Wrong Ramen comes in. The restaurant knows what ramen is supposed to be, but it includes a few surprises into the mix. Bacon, egg and spam are just a few of these things. Warning: Leave your diet at home.
When the rain starts to pour, let the slurping begin.
