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.
