Slurp-y Ramen experience at Shinjuku

 (...a week overdue article!)
It was a weeklong craving for Japanese ramen for me (blame it to Sir Jhune, Ate Ana and Kuya Jon) imagining the huge bowl Kuya Jon grossly described as “Isang arenolang ramen!” Lol! So comes Friday and we’re off to Shinjuku Japanese Cuisine (Shinjuku Ramen House) for a wonderful ramen experience! ;)

It was initially a ramen date for me and Gil but since it was Tita Lally’s birthday (our officekeeper and a nanay to Gil), we invited her over to join us. Liman and Joy tagged along (Liman asked Tita to dine out but since we’re to try Shinjuku after office, we decided to go nlng as group). 


As we’re waiting for the foods to come, I took some pics of the place. Glad to come earlier for I heard of this place being jam packed during lunch and dinner. 

Not-really-hungry but curious us:
 L-R: Tita Lally, Joy Ann, Gil and Liman
 
After a while, the foods were served. What we shared were:
 Manten Men- Reg.size-P290, addt’l P100 for Large size
Karakuchi Negi-P285.00, addt’l P95 for Large size
Famous Shinjuku’s Gyoza- 6pcs at P250
Mixed Tempura- P325
The foods came with cold tea as freebie! ;)
We were surprised and glad at the same time seeing the controversial ramen servings! Haha! How huge? Take a look at these! ;)

Tita Lally with the Manten Men

Of the two ramen, Manten Men was the more outstanding for us girls (though the taste was somewhat similar to that of Chowking Crispy Noodles, only a little saucy—try it!) Gil and Liman on the other hand preferred Karakuchi Negi (they’ve been to Japan several times already thus they’re more accustomed to authentic Japanese ramen). Gyosa was no doubt one of their bestsellers while mixed tempura offers crispy tempura variations of which I loved mushroom tempura the most.

We were too stuffed it took us some time to finish the meals! ;) Overall, it was a delicious slurp-y experience for us! They have many kinds of ramen to choose from anyway, thus I’m dying to try out some more on our next visit. Can’t wait! ;)

I want to try this, so far the one I tried is Ajisen Ramen in Robinson's Place Manila. We'll surely keep this in mind pag nagawi sa Makati area.

mishi said...

hi badet,
try it! you'll love there for sure. Prices are quite affordable for us, laki ng servings eh! 3-4 persons could share na for 1 large order. Thanks for the visit. ;)

I heart Shinjuku. I always order the regular-sized Kanton Men. It's Manten Men without the crabsticks (kani).

Their maguro & shake sashimi are also good. :)
