Nomama (2x) But You

Nomama-14.jpg

A lot of foodies have been waiting for Chef Him Uy de Baron to open his own restaurant.

After gaining a following from his successful catering gigs, he finally decided to open Nomama -- a Japanese restaurant with a twist, focusing on artisanal ramen with ingredients made from scratch.

Nomama in Japanese means "That's it", but this resto got its name from a play on words that it's "not your mama’s ramen".

Locavores would be happy to know that he supports the slow food movement and only uses the freshest local and organic produce in Manila whenever possible. He is committed to the same advocacy as Chef Sandralyn Hataway of Tourné, Chef Tatung, and Chef Sau del Rosario of Le Bistro Vert.

UCC Park Cafe Express-14.jpg

Ramen is our ultimate comfort food, especially when it is raining really hard. A steaming hot bowl of noodles always cheers us up even on the gloomiest of days.

In our search for the best ramen in Manila, we were surprised to discover that UCC also serves Tonkotsu Ramen in a special branch in Makati. The Tonkotsu Ramen is similar to the one served in Genya in Hobbies Mall of Asia.

But UCC's best ramen is the spicy one that is a mix of Chinese Sichuan noodles with sesame paste and Tonkotsu sauce called Tan Tan Mian!
