The place is just small.  The room can fit probably 15-20 persons but there’s an al fresco area. I’m pretty sure that you’d get to have a seat even if they’re packed.  No need to fret as the hip chairs outside will still fit to your liking.

As you know, I love Ramen and I am so excited to try this one as I’ve heard a lot of good things about this place. We were lucky to try almost all the flavored Ramen and other dishes, as well.

Chicken Karaage (Php200) – The soft batter deep fried to a crisp.  I just find the color lighter that the usual golden.  But the taste is definitely superb! Japanese sauce and lemon will give a little acidity to this protein.

Gyoza (Php200) – It was stuffed and has a flavorful meat inside.  Pan fried to give it a little crispiness in it.  This tasted really good and best paired with your choice of Ramen.

Ebi Mison Ramen (Php260) – My favorite! The shrimp added a seafood taste in the broth.  It was really scrumptious in every sip.

What I like about this restaurant is that they offer Junior bowls.  So go crazy with the flavors and order two or three with friends.  I highly recommend this if you’re into Ramen.  I swear, you won’t be disappointed with this.
