MENYA KOKORO: How to Mazesoba Tokyo-Style

With 18 branches in Japan, 3 in Jakarta, 1 in Singapore and 1 in Vancouver, Menya Kokoro by Japanese Chef Takuma Ishikawa is the first Tokyo Mazesoba specialty shop in Manila.

Maze-soba, invented by a Taiwanese chef in Tokyo, literally means mixed noodles. It’s like soupless ramen and more like udon, with similarity to the Taiwanese la mien or the Chinese lomi.

We tried all the items on the menu and here are some tips to have an awesome Tokyo Mazesoba experience with your family.

First Things First

You’ll love the high ceiling and the ambiance created by the floor to ceiling windows with a view of the Salcedo trees.

It’s a bit quaint though quite congested during peak hours, and there are times when you’ll be forced to seat upstairs.

I loved this Single Origin because of its expanded Italian menu, especially the availability of good value steak.
