Traveling all the way to Alabang from Binondo for a hot bowl of ramen is not normal. Eating a bowl of excellent ramen at the only Ramen Yushoken in Metro Manila makes it normal.
So, finally, thanks to my best friend Cathy, the foodie in me got excited to explore the flavors of Ramen Yushoken. I ordered the most basic ramen, Shio, to better appreciate the broth like I always do. If ever I will have another chance to go back, I would definitely try either the Tantanmen with sesame paste, pork and chili oil or the rich Miso with 7 different kinds of miso. Salivating just thinking about it.
Our Shio ramen was rich but subtle, in fact, sweetish, a little velvety, with fantastic noodles, which they make fresh always. I ate my ramen with aji tamago and we had gyoza on the side. Dumplings don’t excite me much, but theirs are nice and cooked al dente.
Adjudged the best ramen by food bloggers and foodies, Ramen Yushoken lives up to the hype.
We had dessert at nearby Cravings. I wanted something else, but settled for a less heavy tiramisu. A good choice though.
