Tamagoya! Ramen in Marikina / Antipolo

It’s ramen season once again and I think I’m craving for those hot and steamy noodles. A 10 minute drive from our place is Tamagoya! Noodle House which offers a generous serving of ramen at a very reasonable price.

After hearing a lot of good feedback from fellow Marikenos, my hubby and I decided to visit this place and give it a try. Coming from Marikina we followed the Sumulong Highway Road and when we saw Petron to our right, we turned left to Soliven Avenue. To our left is sign of Tamagoya. This place is actually closer to Marikina than Antipolo so I didn’t feel like I’ve left Marikina at all. ๐Ÿ˜›

The first floor has a seating capacity of around 20 pax or less. Good thing they have a second floor to accommodate more.

We didn’t wait long though and we just had a while to take photos. What is commendable about this place is the really fast service! For a ramen house, I was surprised to have our orders served quickly.

Gyoza (Php 98)

Gyoza (Php 98)

We got their Gyoza as appetizer. And my my. This is probably the most affordable and yummiest gyoza I’ve tried. If I wasn’t going to have ramen that night, I would have had 2 orders of this given the price and 6 large pieces of it.

Miso Ramen (Php 158.00)

Miso Ramen (Php 158.00)

Hubby got their Miso Ramen which is Noodles with Japanese Miso Paste Soup. The serving was huge! For the taste, compared to other Ramen that I’ve tried, I would give it a 7.5 out of 10.

Stamina Ramen (Php 168.00)

Stamina Ramen (Php 168.00)

I ordered Stamina Ramen which is Noodles with Chili Based Miso Soup. I took a bite and I found that I quite liked my hubby’s order better.ย I found it difficult to finish my bowl of ramen since the serving was a bowlful.

Given the price, it was really really worth it and I would definitely try the others when we are wanting to have our ramen fix.

If you’re not up for ramen, they have other selections to choose from. ๐Ÿ™‚

My hubby and I love to hang out and talk after dining, this isn’t a place to do that though. But since we’re just here for the ramen, we aren’t disappointed, we’ve had our fill and when it starts to pour and we’re craving for noodles, we would definitely be seen in this place again. ๐Ÿ™‚

If only I were.. and If only these things could happen…


The two most ungrateful words I would often catch myself say. We often have the entitlement mentality and think we deserve more in our life than what we have now. We even hurt ourselves and turn bitter by that little thing we won’t let go.

I would be happier IF ONLY i earn more than what I have now.
I would be happier IF ONLY he would love me more.
I would be content IF ONLY they could treat me this way.
I would be happier EXCEPT that I still haven’t reached my 5 year goal.
I would be content EXCEPT that ______

And our list goes on. We often focus on that little thing instead of God’s unending blessings and grace in our lives. If it is really for us, God knows best when to give it to us, in His right and proper timing.

God wants our honesty and our heart and when we turn to Him, God has the power to make our heart right.

In Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Numbers 11:23 The LORD answered Moses, “Is the LORD’s arm too short? Now you will see whether or not what I say will come true for you.”

Isaiah 59:1 Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.

Are you letting the exceptions rule your life or are you letting God rule without exceptions?

Thai Bistro: Sugar N Spice & Everything Nice

If you’re into spice, this is going to be a pleasant surprise.ย Thai Bistro was a very yummy discovery for Jason and I as we were strolling in Robinsons Magnolia for our much awaited and needed quality time.

What got our attention was this tarpaulin at their entrance stating the reviews from bloggers. With the good reviews, we decided to experience for ourselves the thrill of spice their tastebuds were treated to.

Jason had Thai Bistro’s Lemongrass Juice to ease the pain in his throat.

Lemongrass Juice (Php 80)

ย I also had a sip of his tea and had it with honey.

I told myself I was just going to be healthy and have greens that night so I got myself the Prime Angus Beef Salad.

Prime Angus Beef Salad (Php 348.00)

Prime Angus Beef Salad (Php 348.00)

I didn’t expect that it would be spicy. Good thing I love spices since it enhances the flavor and makes the dish interesting. The salad wasn’t the regular Western Salad that had more lettuce. This one was soaked in vinegar and it also had the aftertaste of herbs. It also tasted like orchids by the way since the scent of the flower seemed to have influenced the vinegar below.

The medium rare angus beef I had was soft and tender. For me this served as an appetiser. Instead of just having salad, the flavors gave me the craving to have and eat more than what I originally planned for.

Chiang Mai Khao Soi (Php 295.00)

Chiang Mai Khao Soi (Php 295.00)

So when Jason’s fresh egg noodles curry came, i requested for a bowl and a serving of noodles – my bowl of shame. (since I told myself I was just going to have veggies that night).

This was again spicy and the curry for me was delicious! We both loved the curry sauce and I liked how the noodles were crunchy despite the sauce. This actually excited me to get myself authentic Thai food in the country of spices hopefully soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

I forgot about my so called diet after having my bowl of shame and even finishing off the last bite of Chiang Mai Khao Soi.

But since Jason and I were discussing a hot topic. [about the future] I guess it’s just appropriate to lighten up and have some sweets. Okay I’m just making up an excuse to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Takhoo Thai (Php 180.00)

Takhoo Thai (Php 180.00)

This was one of the bestsellers from Thai Bistro so we didn’t pass up the chance to have it. Takhoo Thai dessert isย warm tapioca pearls topped with creamy coconut sauce. It wasn’t too sweet and it wasn’t to heavy too that you’d feel guilty afterwards. [I actually had 3], Jason was chatting away, so he didn’t quite notice I was having a little more than enough sweets.

Thai Bistro is a thumbs up for me. The place is conducive for connecting and communicating, plus they also have this VIP area where you could hold parties / meetings at only Php8,000 good for 15pax.

I’d definitely come back here again to have my dose of sugar n spice, and everything nice. ๐Ÿ™‚
