Ryu Ramen and Curry.
I’ve actually heard it from a very close friend who’s also a blogger and I was so excited to try it when I heard it from her. I love Japanese food, specially Curries. So, one day, we were bored and hungry we decided to pass by and see or taste what the fuss is all about in this place. And then I knew…
Tantanmen- Spicy miso base broth with ground pork, soft boiled egg, negi, and garlic oil with 2 slices of chasyu. As I’ve heard, this was their house specialty so I ought to try it and it didn’t fail the rumors that I’ve heard. It was so good, every flavor was in balance, the mild sspiciness of the broth gave life to this dish. The noodles has a firm and smooth feel into it as you put it in your mouth.
Miso Butter Corn Ramen-Miso broth with sauteed vegetables, ground pork, special butter. My friend’s personal favorite but my least liked dish. It taste so regular for me. But for my friend, as she described it was light and the taste of the miso plus the butter goes really well together.
Beef Tendon Curry-Their curry rice served with soft beef tendons. This was my favorite, I ate most of it and shared only a few bites to my friends. Spicy yet it has a very subtle taste. The beef were indeed very tender and the sauce was enough for me. I swear I shared most of the beef with my friends and I just mixed the curry sauce with the rice and I was satisfied.
Ebi Tempura-Prawns that have been battered and deep fried.
Huge prawns! Very tasty and flavorful prawns! I didn’t know what their batter was made of but it definitely made the tempura very unique. Crunchy exterior but the prawns were cooked just right, soft and tender.
I was actually surprised when I heard that Ryu Ramen and Curry is owned by celebrity couple Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez. Why? I don’t know, I was just surprised. LELS.
