RAMEN DAISHO: Ukokkei Ramen without the Drama :)

RAMEN DAISHO - Our Awesome Planet-11.jpg

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 NAGI "BUTAO": Gourmet Ramen now in Manila! @SMAuraPremier

Ramen Nagi Butao4863.jpg

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...

TAMPOPO is a ramen and tonkatsu specialty store founded by Takaaki Takagi in Singapore. Takagi is best known for starting Tonkichi, one of Singapore's best Tonkatsu Restaurants. The name Tampopo, which literally means "dandelion", is inspired by the 1985 Japanese "Ramen Western" film of the same name.

MENTORE: High-End Coffee & Japanese Food Experience by UCC!

MENTORE Coffee & Bar - Our Awesome Planet-32.jpg

We're fans of UCC's Hubert Young's taste for good Japanese food, like UCC's Tan Tan Mian Tonkotsu Ramen and MITSUYADO SEI-MEN's Double Cheese Sauce TSUKEMEN!

So when we heard about his new venture, MENTORÉ, we decided to visit their standalone store beside Fairmont. We hesitated at first because it highlights itself as a "Coffee + Bar", but I'm glad we still went because they actually have a full line-up of the latest in Japanese cuisine.

It's a nice place to hang out with friends or meet with business partners over good coffee and a yummy selection of Japanese food.  

Check out our MENTORÉ experience...
