Mendokoro Ramenba memories... :-) Here’s my Shoyu Ramen with a slice of grilled pork belly, an order of their freshly-made and yummy gyoza, an order of extra chashu slices, and two batches of great friends I dined with at Mendokoro. (Tip: Since you’d really need to wait to be seated, visit Mendokoro with friends you don’t mind being stuck with while waiting. Haha.) #weekendwafung#weekdaywafung#ramen#mendokororamenba#japanesefood

Went to #mendokororamenba BGC just recently but today’s weather makes me crave for ramen again. Their off the menu Curry Tsukemen tastes good! Of course, we ordered our fave off the menu Bonito Tsukemen (which soup/dipping sauce is lighter than Mendo Makati’s) to go with Shio Maze Soba. Carbs overload!
Decided to check out Mendokoro's newest branch in BGC today. As expected, the line was long, but the ramen was worth the 40-min wait. Lol. I absolutely loved their chashu, and their soup was on point!
Definitely the best ramen spot anywhere in the metro.
@mendokoro_ramenba has taken Makati as the best ramen place by storm. And just last month, #MendokoroRamenba has found a new home in Bonifacio Global City—same taste, same flavour in a different location. 🍜

- Got several DMs from friends on my IG Story last Wednesday, asking if “MASARAP BA?” YES, masarap pero di naman yong nakakabaliw na sarap. Malasa yong sabaw (no need to add condiments) at masarap yong noodles.
- Mas nabaliw ako dito, the best so far!
So I was in the area of @mendokoro_ramenba earlier this week and decided to try it. I read that lines here can get crazy so when I got there at around 10:55, I expected people waiting already. I lined up, and saw people in front of me and at the back counting the other in line because the resto only can seat a little more than 20 people... But apparently it was my lucky day and I was the last one to be seated in the first group of customers. Anyway, I ordered the Tantanmen, which is a spicy ramen with a peanut flavored broth and ground pork. It was pretty good, not too spicy, noodles were just right and there weren't any overpowering flavors. Definitely this place is worth a try, but if you don't want to brave the lines, you can try Yushoken at Molito in Alabang. Apparently they're from the same group of restos, and offer a number of similar dishes. 😊 #foodblogger#whattoeatph#wheninmanila#wimyummy#manilaeats#dmfoodseries#ramenph#bestramen#ramen#mendokororamenba#noodlesoup#sarap#nomnom#foodieph#foodphotography#foodadventures#foodie#whattoeatph#tantanmen

Mendokoro Ramenba has always been on a hype train and we decided to jump on it. After waiting for 1 and a half hour to have a taste of the famous ramen, I can say that the wait was worth it thanks to the spectacular chashu that can very well stand alone as a dish. It was grilled to perfection but still melts in your mouth and tastes reeeeaaaally good. Meaty, juicy, and savory!
The ramen, though above average, was not how I expected it to be. I love how the noodles were cooked perfectly but the broth was too creamy for my taste and felt like it could do a little more flavor. Don't get me wrong, it's delicious, but I kind of expected more given the hype. Perhaps we just visited on a bad day? I'd like to give it another chance!
The chashu is AMAZING and I'd still recommend the ramen! It was a lovely coincidence visiting Mendokoro on a rainy evening. After all, a bowl of ramen is always a good idea especially when it's raining!
