MUST TRY: Shoyu Tonkatsu

Gaku says: “Mendokoro has tonkotsu-based ramen with chashu. The restaurant looks

just like a Japanese-style kitchen and it reminds me of a good ramen restaurant in

Japan, Afuri. The taste of the broth and chasu is very nice.”

#4 Mitsuyado Seimen

MUST TRY: Cheese Tsukemen

Gaku says: “Tsukemen soup is yuzu flavor and the noodles are thick. I have never

thought that cheese can fit wih Tsukemen, but you will be satisfied once you taste it at


#3 Ramen Daisho

MUST TRY: Miso Ramen

Gaku says: “The best Miso ramen in Manila! It is located along Shaw Blvd. Although

not located in a major mall, lots of people go there just to eat Daisho’s delicious ramen.

Not only ramen, but their gyoza are also delicious.”

#2 Ramen Nagi

MUST TRY: Butao Ramen

Gaku says: “Nagi’s tonkotsu-based broth tastes like real Japanese tonkotsu. If you’re a

first-time visitor, try Butao. When you’ve eaten half of it, try to add their Fire sauce to

change the taste. You can also change the firmness of the ramen and the toppings

based on your preference.”
