Ramen Bari-Uma Jr

Another gem of a ramen house, Ramen Bari-Uma Jr. Bari means Super and Uma means Tasty. And the ramen’s really super tasty! I love its interior. Red tiles adorn the corner end of the resto, while mirrors with painted Japanese words in red and black are placed on the side to make the place lookContinue reading “Ramen Bari-Uma Jr”

Ippon Yari – Authentic Japanese Restaurant

There’s a hidden gem along Real Road in Calamba, Laguna. Ippon Yari boasts of an extensive menu which offers everything Japanese from Soba, Udon, Ramen, Sushi, Sashimi, Gyoza, Dons, Beers and so much more. We were just in time for their 11am opening.

Mendokoro Ramenba

On one of our rare date nights, we decided to head to Salcedo Village in Makati City to try this famous Ramen resto. We thought there will be a shorter line since it’s the middle of the week and it’s already late (8:30pm), only to be shocked, sleepy and hungry for 2 hours while waitingContinue reading “Mendokoro Ramenba”

When in Japan: Nissin Cup Noodles Museum

The person who is not a fan of Nissin Cup Noodles can leave now.  This is about Nissin Cup Noodles and how it was invented and everything else about it. The museum is located in Yokohama, an hour drive from Tokyo.  We decided to go early as it goes crazy and it might take usContinue reading “When in Japan: Nissin Cup Noodles Museum”

In other countries especially Hong Kong and Japan, citizens are usually inclined to fall in line for hours just to get a taste of that famous or newest resto! Last week, as tourists in Japan, we also waited for more than an hour in line for Ichiran – a famous ramen place.   Here weContinue reading “Ichiran in Japan”

Caution Hot!

Check this new ramen house which you could mix with your choice of hotness! Sounds hot right?  Check out this spicy restaurant. They opened in Kapitolyo recently and the place is packed. Don’t expect a full menu of ramen though.  Mixing and matching is their thing. Our choices: 1) Beef with Egg Noodles in ClassicContinue reading “Caution Hot!”

Food Trip: Nadai Fujisoba

Went out with some friends last Friday night for chit chat.  Our choice?  Nadai Fujisoba at Lucky Chinatown Mall.  It is very convenient that we have this mall near our workplace. Nadai Fujisoba is a little bit new and a little bit small for a resto.  It just took some space from the resto besideContinue reading “Food Trip: Nadai Fujisoba”

Food Trip: Oyasumi Ramen

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 aContinue reading “Food Trip: Oyasumi Ramen”
