RAMEN DAISHO offers ramen that may not only be familiar in name but also in taste. Daisho comes from a coined word meaning dai="big", sho="fly" or "fly high".
Their ukokkei ("Silkie" chicken) ramen recipe is the same recipe bought by the Ukokkei Ramen Ron owners years ago from Japanese Master ChefFunatsu Yasuhiko, helping start the ramen craze here in the Philippines. In addition to the ramen recipe, Ramen Daisho bought the Master Chef's Gyoza and Chahan recipes, too. :)
Take a look at what you can expect from Ramen Daisho...
Ramen Daisho is located along Shaw Blvd, near Puregold and beside Bon Chon.
The menu is simple, focused on the Ukokkei Ramen in 4 broth variants (Miso, Shio, Shoyu, and Tonkotsu), with customizable side dishes and toppings.
NOTE: I had the privilege of shooting all the food photos for the Ramen Daisho menu. :)
This is the best ukokkei ramen for me -- milky broth with thin noodles and lots of chashu meat. :)
Order the regular size which is just enough for one person. All their ramen come with egg at no additional cost.
The gyoza cover is made from the same thin sheet used in mochi to make it extra yummy. :)
This is one of the best Chahan I've ever tasted and it's very addicting. It only comes in a large portion intended for sharing.
TIP: Best enjoyed with the remaining ramen soup in your bowl! :)
Had a lovely dinner with Jill, The Food Scout and her photographer boyfriend Oliver during Ramen Daisho's grand opening night. :)
I've tasted all their ramen variants, and my second favorite is the miso ramen, which comes with curly noodles.
You can also try their Japanese soy sauce (Shoyu) based version.
The cold zaru ramen is also worth trying, which comes with a large serving of noodles...
They also serve beef curry with rice. Perfect for those who prefer rice toppings for lunch.
To Master ChefFunatsu Yasuhiko, thank you for sharing with us the magical secret of this ramen. :)
If you love ramen and are looking for the ultimate ukokkei experience, Ramen Daisho is the best place to enjoy it while being treated with a nice friendly service.
Make sure to order the Hakata Tonkotsu Chashu-men or Miso Ramen, and the Yakibuta Chahan. Budget is P500/head.
Indeed, ukokkei ramen without the drama!
