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...

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...
