MENDOKORO RAMENBA is the "serious ramen" reincarnation of Ramen Yushoken in Makati, by Elbert Cuenca and Ryan Cruz. They strictly serve ramen only, limited to 80-100 bowls daily, and just for dine-in during lunch or dinner. The concept is inspired by the authentic ramen houses in Japan.

12/10 is a Japanese restaurant by Thea de Rivera and Gab Bustos, also known as The Girl + The Bull. The name of their second restaurant is a tribute to their anniversary date. The restaurant is an izakaya-inspired drinking joint featuring a customize-your-own degustation.
It's like the younger, hip brother of Mecha Uma--another "graduate" of the BF Aguirre Food Street-- offering contemporary Japanese cuisine to a mainstream foodie audience in the metro.
Went on a date with Rache plus the boys at 12/10, and here's what we think it...

MECHA UMA is a Chef-Driven Restaurant by Chef Bruce Ricketts of Sensei Sushi fame. The name is a Japanese expression for absurdly delicious food.
They serve predominantly Japanese food but are not limited to it. Foodies have raved about the Tasting Menu served Omakase-style (but is still dependent on the chef and what's freshly available that day). They also serve an a la carte menu of the best dishes featured in the Tasting Menu.
We tried Mecha Uma's a la carte menu with our Mercato Partners and here's our experience...
G/F RCBC Savings Bank Corporate Center,
25th Streets, cor. 6th and 7th Avenue,

(beside Starbucks Coffee)
