I was fortunate to be invited along with a few other bloggers to have a “Food Tasting” session at Ryu Ramen located in the SM Jazz Mall along the confines of Makati. I had school later that day in Rockwell so good thing that it was so close by. Yey! 🙂
I came in quite late actually since I was caught up in the traffic along the way but good thing I still managed to arrive there before they ended. I just asked from Sir Ross from Wazzup Pilipinas if I could share their food photos since when I came in most of the Ramen Bowls were already half eaten and consumed. He gladly helped me out and also briefed me in on what I missed during their lunch. Yey! 🙂 Thank you! 😀
Moving on, we were tasked to just sit back, relax and enjoy the taste of the various Ramen bowls that we were served.
I love Japanese cuisine and I usually go along with my usual food staples like the California Maki, Tuna Sashimi Salad, Tempura and Cheese Maki. However, with the advent of the Ramen craze that seem to go around nowadays. I wanted to quell my curiosity and taste for myself what all these various Ramen joints popping along the Metropolis had to offer my palate.
The Japanese people are quite well known for their culinary arts and one of their well loved “artworks” is Ramen. Now a new Japanese gastronomical gallery is cooking up their flavorful masterpieces in the form of their Ryu Tantanmen Five (tadadada) drum roll please.
I definitely love Tantanmen and I have been to various Ramen Joints from our food trips before. Some of the various joints that I have been to are the following: Ryu Ramen in Tomas Morato, Wrong Ramen in the Fort , Kitchitora Ramen and a slew of other stalls however I failed to document already some of them. 😦 since I just recently decided to start up my own blog with some help from P. 😀
So maybe now you’re wondering what this certain “Ryu Tantanmen Five” has in store for us and what makes it so appetizing and palatable? Let me now brief you in on their newly cooked dishes.
1. Classic Tantanmen
Rich Miso based broth with delectable chasu sliices, spicy ground pork, soft boiled egg (which I definitely love!!) and their tasty noodles
2. Ebi Tantanmen
Shrimp bits packed goodness in a bowl of flavorful miso soup with fresh greens and noodles.
3. Yaki Buta Tantanmen
Rich tender pork ribs that strips off the bone with some fresh veggies and noodles in a bowl of hot miso based soup.
4. Karaage Tantanmen
Chicken pieces topped with Shitake mushrooms, vegetables and noodles in a bowl full of miso based broth. (One of my ultimate faves due to the Shitake Mushrooms) .
5. Gyu Tantanmen
Generous tender beef slices coupled with some veggies and noodles all in a savory miso based soup.
Alongside these treats, Ryu also offers its signature Curry cuisine which will surely spice up your palate even more and up your ante when it comes to Japanese food. Some of their signature curry dishes are the Ryu Ramen Curry, Katsu Curry, Katsucheese Curry (which I loved since the taste of the cheese in the middle of the Katsu definitely blends well with the crispy exterior of this dish.
Also the Curry sauce spices things up a bit since it adds a little spice to your taste buds making this dish more flavorful). They also have their Seafood Curry, Beef Tendon Curry, Pork Gyoza Curry and their Tori Karaage Curry.
The place was more spacious and the interiors were well maintained and clean even their restroom. Their food servers were very accommodating, amicable and attentive to our needs. So what are you waiting for? Head off to Ryu Ramen now and delight your palate with their brand new signature dishes.
