They listed this place as one of the best ramen finds in the Metro. And, boy, they did not disappoint!

They have limited seats so you might have to wait a while if there are customers. You don’t get to choose to be seated together because you get what you can – seats and all. They are solely focused on ramen with some sides like gyoza.

The ramen was delicious especially the broth. The noodles are firm just the way I like it. The chashu was the perfect addition to the broth and noodles. It was the perfect bowl of ramen!

Sorry, Ramen Nagi. There’s a new favorite in town.

I walk past this shop whenever I go home but I never bothered stepping inside.

To be honest, the outside display is cute. Also, the shop isn’t that big. The place could probably hold at most 20 people inside.

We sat on the bar because the place was full even if it was already 9:20 PM. We ordered the Beast Ramen – pork bone broth, chashu, beef strips, corn, spring onions, and tamago.

It was indeed a beast! The bowl was bigger than my face. And for the price of PHP 310, the taste wasn’t bad! In fact, it was better than what I expected. They got the noodles right – firm with a bit into it. The only thing I will probably comment was the egg. It lacked a little flavor but was cooked right.

The place is quaint and homey.

I am surprised that I didn’t try eating here. Now, I have a place to go for not-so-late cravings. The next time, I’ll try the other items on the menu.
