I feel like my blog posts are centered around just a few simple things: games, geekery, and food. This time I traipsed all the way to Robinson’s Manila just to grab a bowl of Ippudo Ramen.
Although they first opened in Megamall in Ortigas, I’m super glad they’ve decided to branch out to places that I frequent. Yay!
Ramen places are often my most favorite to visit. They’re so interesting and picturesque, definitely note-worthy and enjoyable to look at.
From the exterior to the interior, I love all the elements in the resto. The wooden tables and panels, even the cute little display modules they have of their famous ramen bowls and spoons. <3
Okay so let’s go to the food now! Whee!
My boyfriend and I ordered the same thing, the Akamaru Shinaji!
Ugh, look at that beautiful red bowl!
“IPPUDO’s original tonkotsu broth enhanced with special blended miso paste and fragrant garlic oil. Served with thin noodles, pork belly, kikurage and spring onions. A refined, modern-style ramen.”
Ippudo’s ramen can come a little bit customized to your taste. Prices change depending on whether you want your bowl as is or if you want add-ons like extra soft-boiled egg, extra chasyu slices, etc. My bowl had extra pork slices so it costed around Php490.
My boyfriend’s brother was a little more adventurous that time so he sampled Ippudo’s new fare, the Gyokai Tonkotsu.
“This unique ramen is made with 2 kinds of broth– chicken and tonkotsu, and ladled with bonito flavor for a taste of the sea!”
The Gyokai Tonkotsu tastes a bit more smokey, kind of grilled with a little bit of the Tonkotsu mixed in. The Akamaru Shinaji is miso-based and still has that thick Tonkotsu broth that I favor above all, haha!
This is really just a short food post but I’m sorry if I made your mouths water. I’m actually starving right now after writing this. HAHA!
