Impromptu dinner with the girls. Oyasumi Ramen is not your ordinary ramen house.
From the outside, it doesn’t even look like a restaurant. It looks like a bar. It has a dark vibe with it. If not for the mirrored name, you will miss this ramen place.
Once inside, the dark vibe continues.
There’s a bar where you can actually sit and watch the chefs in action as they prepare your orders.
The dining area is on the 2nd floor. I like how the unfinished walls give a great accent. Tables with led lights on it supplies brightness, may be too bright for me though.
Sorry for the unbussed tables.
The name you see outside looks like this from the inside.
Called for different ramens to complement our tastes.
I called for the Yokohama Iekei Ramen which is their bestseller. True enough, this ramen could give other ramen houses a run for their money. Rich and really milky, the broth has just the right saltiness. The Char-Siu is so succulent, it almost melts in your mouth.
On the side is an order of Gyoza. A little salty for my tastebuds, what I liked about it is the thinness of the Gyoza wrapper. Pan fried to add crispness to it.
Friend number 1 called for the Black Pepper Ramen which has the same base broth with the Iekei. It’s almost the same except that the ramen is sprinkled with bits and whole black pepper. Friend number 2 ordered Kara Misu Ramen. It is being served on 3 levels of spiciness. Friend number 2 chose Level 1.
All these other ramens are also served with 2 big slices of Torched Char-Siu Pork.
This new ramen place is worth a try. To all my friends who frequent San Juan, go get your ramens now.
Oh and by the way, on the 2nd floor, they have a projector which plays Japanese cartoons. You might be a fan.
