I turn green with envy every time I see people post photos of themselves in Japan. It has been a dream of mine to go there. Authentic Japanese food!!! I heard that those hole-in-the-wall restaurants serve the best ramen! *Think Ramen Girl*
Luckily, there are some restaurants in Manila that offer really good ramen. One of which is my favorite Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen. I just fell in love with the Black Garlic Tonkotsu as it is different from the other ramen I have tried before. Plus, having the freedom to choose how hard you want your noodles? H-E-A-V-E-N!
A few days back, R of Ikkoryu Fukuoka emailed me that they have new dishes. I turned green again because I can't try it anytime soon. (Cue: TT_TT)
Curious on what their new dishes are?
Yuzu-Tama Tonkotsu. It's named after yuzukosyo, a spice Kyushu region is known for. R described it as a "spice experience in ramen like no other." I've read a few reviews about this and it seems to have an addicting broth as it turned people who do not like spicy food keep slurping for more!
The Aka Tonkotsu is a light ramen perfect for those who do not want food coma! It has a light texture yet rich in flavors.
If I were to choose between the two, I'd go for the Yuzu-Tama Tonkotsu. No, it's not because I am used to food coma, but I'm interested to see if I can tolerate the spiciness of it and still manage to finish the whole bowl.
Ikkoryu Fukuoda Ramen is located at the 5th floor, East Wing, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Mandaluyong City.
