2015 Best Ramen in Manila by a Japanese Reviewer




Gaku Nakamura is a self-styled Japanese Ramen Consultant living in Manila. Last year, he listed his top 10 ramen with Ramen Nagi topping the list. But with a number of new and authentic restaurants popping up, here is some of Gaku-san’s top ramen for 2015!

#5 Mendokoro Ramenba


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.”



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 Mitsuyado!



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.”


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.”

  12. I had my first ramen just last November! I only had a simple chicken ramen at Santouka and it was great (maybe because we were starving!). But when I went back again, I didn't enjoy it as much. I guess I'm not really a big fan. I'd occasionally crave for some though.

  16. I recently tried the Cheese Tsukemen at Mitsuyado Seimen with a friend, and OMG it was so good! I was super doubtful at first if it would be yummy coz I never thought that ramen and cheese would go well together, but it did!

  18. I love authentic Japanese Ramen! Thanks for sharing this new food spot. The photos look really enticing. I haven't tried other Ramens so far aside from Tamagoya (along Soliven/Lilac St).
