Nothing gets me in the mood for a good bowl of steaming hot ramen than a heavy downpour. So it was an easy choice for my husband and I when we went to UP Town Center for dinner on a rainy night. The place was pretty packed so were glad to have seats immediately prepared for two.
For appetizer, we had their Pan Fried Pork Gyoza.
The gyoza was okay, it wasn’t too oily and it really served as our appetizer as we were still craving for more after.
I remembered that the last time I was here, one ramen bowl was too much for me so I asked hubby if we could just order 1 and split it into two.
When we had our order split, it was too few for us both. But it was better than having to try to finish one whole bowl and have leftovers. It really tasted like curry and it had a very strong flavor probably why I couldn’t finish my bowl the first time I visited their Tomas Morato branch. (I had their Tantanmen then and I remember being unable to consume my whole bowl because of the strong mix of flavors).
We found ourselves unsatisfied yet with the taste of curry left in our mouth. So I got their Karaage as the last flavor that will be left on my tastebuds.
Their Karaage was served in quite long pieces so we asked to have it cut to bite sized ones for easier eating. I liked their karaage as the flavor wasn’t too salty and it was crispy enough.
What I liked best about this place is their fast service. We haven’t even gotten warm in our conversation yet and there our orders were. The staff was also very attentive and quick to respond to our needs. When it comes to their ramen, I could say that their ramen warmed our tummies and it had an interesting twist to the regular ramen but maybe I’ll return when I ‘m up for that twist in flavors again. 🙂
