First Bite: Hokkaido Ramen Santouka

It has been a while since I last went to Greenhills. I went crazy with the great tiangge finds. I even thought of hoarding stuff for Christmas. But the tummy had another plan… to eat. And since F wanted ramen, we went to Hokkaido Ramen Santouka.

Hello, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka!
The place was packed with hungry diners when I arrived a bit past 1 p.m.. F and I had to wait for around 20 minutes before the server approached us if we’re okay with bar seats. Since we were hungry, we said yes.
I ordered a regular Shio Ramen (PHP345) with Komi-Tamago (PHP50) and Kurobuta Gyoza (PHP240) while F went for a bowl of Shoyu Ramen (PHP345). Service was quick as it took them less than 10 minutes to serve our food.
My ramen is one of the shop’s bestsellers and it had a slightly burnt taste to it. The broth is flavorful and a bit too oily, probably from the chasu which was tender and slightly sweet. 
I loved munching the hard noodles and slurping the soup with the flavored boiled egg. Overall though, it was too flavorful. I couldn’t even finish my bowl.
The gyoza was a disappointment. The server said that the kurobuta gyoza is one of their bestsellers but the filling was too dry. I still prefer Kichitora’s gyoza.

Overall, it was just a so-so lunch. I had better ramen and gyoza. Actually, I ended up missing Kichitora and Ramen Nagi.

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is located at 2nd floor, Promenade, Greenhills, San Juan.
