Hello, Uma Uma!
Located at the second floor of the new and posh S Maison of Conrad Manila, it was sandwiched between Chibo Okonomiyaki and Rossini.
I entered from the outside door so the first thing I saw was the ramen joint's bar called Horse's Mouth. The interiors were dark with an interesting Japanese painting decorating the dark wooden wall.
I browsed through the cocktail list of the bar and noticed that the drinks are not cheap at all. Most are over PHP300 with a few under it. Clueless of what to order, I decided to ask the barista who happens to be one of the owners, I think.
He suggested a few drinks but I was sold with Aphrodisiac (PHP360) which he mentioned to be the most photogenic and refreshing.
Also, the alcohol level isn't that high, making it the perfect pre-event drink. I gave it a go and it was prepared right away!
I must say, the drink was pretty good.
It was refreshing (because of the lime juice, Japanese cucumber and mint) and had a light taste. Interestingly, the egg white went really well with the drink. It was not weird at all. In fact, it was delightful! It made the drink slightly thicker and smoother.
After a few sips of my drink, I moved to the bright dining area and waited for A to arrive. And details about the ramen will be continued to my next entry. :D
It might take me a while to visit this place again as S Maison is still a ghost town. Good news though, they will open another branch soon!
Oh, if you happen to be here around 5 p.m., do not miss the sunset!
