Restaurant Discovery: Kokoro Ramenya

Some colleagues and I decided to attend the launch of Summit Media’s newest baby, Elle D├ęcor Philippines at the MET Museum and since we were around the area, we decided to stop by this ramen place called Kokoro Ramenya.

The place was quite empty when we arrived as it was already around 9 p.m. that time but we noticed that a handful of customers come in every 15 minutes. Not bad given it was pretty late already.
 
The place was pretty spacious and I guess the short chairs contributed to that. Once we sat down, the menus were handed to us and we were also given complimentary tea and a tray of wet towels.
 
It’s a given that one of the things I HAVE to order is Salmon Sashimi (PHP295) so I did along with  a bowl of Shoyu Ramen (PHP235), an order of Coffee Jelly (PHP85) and a glass of Kokoro Iced Tea (PHP50). This is the definition of light dinner. >.<
 
Service was quick as my plate of salmon sashimi arrived within 5 minutes. The cuts were big so it was definitely worth my money. Also, the salmon was fresh and the type that melts in your mouth. *happiness*
 
The Shoyu Ramen (soy-based noodle soup made from light pork broth) sure hit the spot! The warm ramen was indeed filling. Serving was quite big and good for two but meat lovers like me will find the pork slices a bit short. The noodles were pretty good as it had this slightly chewy texture. The vegetables included made each bite more enjoyable!
 
My dessert was pretty good too. The coffee jelly was undeniably coffee as it was slightly bitter which was a great contrast from the sweet vanilla ice cream.
They have their own blended iced tea!
Just a few steps away from Shiro-Shiro (where I had crocodile meat), I will definitely visit this place again! 

Kokoro Ramenya is located at 2nd floor Avenue of the Arts Building, Roxas Boulevard Corner Sta. Monica, Ermita, Manila.
