RAMEN CRAZE: 10 Most Awesome Ramens in Manila 2013!

2014 Update! Read: RAMEN WARS: 10 Best Ramen, Eating Habits, and Social Buzz in Manila!

Here's a year end wrap-up of our Top 10 Favorite Ramens in Manila this 2013!

1. RAMEN NAGI BUTAO

RAMEN NAGI offers a gourmet version of ramen that is hailed as the best in Tokyo. It has been awarded the top spot in the National Ramen of the Year Competitions for the last two years (2011 and 2012). In Hongkong, the Ramen Nagi franchise is known as BUTAO, after its popular signature ramen, which Filipinos line up hours for just to get a taste. :)

Finally, Ramen Nagi has opened in Manila at the 5th Floor of SM Aura Premier. The Manila franchise is owned by Plains & Prints couple founders Roxanne and Erickson Farillas, together with Michael James Chua, Carissa Coscolluela, Enti Coscolluela, and Avi Siy-Chua. 

As the Filipino foodie's taste for ramen matures, one would prefer more rich and bolder flavors vs. the lighter variety. And once you taste the richer gourmet version of Ramen Nagi, there's no going back to light and lesser quality ramen.

You've got to check out why foodies are raving about Ramen Nagi Butao...

VERDICT

So far, RAMEN NAGI has the best ramen in town, especially if you are looking for a richer gourmet ramen version. We love the Black KingGreen King, and Ebi King. I can't wait for them to offer the Truffle Ramen King version! The Boys love the Butao King version. :)

Each bowl of ramen is already a complete and satisfying meal. They only offer and specialize in ramen for now. I hope that they make dessert options available soon. 

Budget is P500/person. Make sure to visit early and during the non-peak times to avoid the crowd.

KICHITORA: Paitan Ramen Zenbu no Se and Tan Tan Mien! @KichitoraPH

KICHITORA is a ramen chain concept by Filipino and Japanese partners, which opened its first branch in Shibuya, Tokyo and subsequently in SM Megamall about a year ago. Just recently, they opened another branch in Glorietta 5. The name "Kichitora" literally means “Lucky Tiger”.

I often ask foodies what their favorite ramen is and Kichitora is consistently mentioned. We finally got to try it and I can see why they love it here. :)

Check out our Kichitora experience...

I've heard yummy stories about Chef Vicky's private dining in Baguio from foodies raving about the experience. We met Chef Vicky in Mercato Centrale, with her stall selling her yummy goodies from Baguio, when we first opened in 2010.

She offers an 8-course, French-inspired, strictly-by-reservation private dining in her lovely home in Baguio. She only accepts strictly one group at a time, with a minimum of 6 persons.

There is no menu, so just be prepared to be surprised with the 3-hour, 8-course Degustation Meal.

Your Baguio foodie trip would not be complete if you don't get to experience Chef Vicky's food, warm and kid-friendly hospitality and authentic Baguio Home ambiance.

(Tip: You can bring your own wine with no corkage fee.)
