Spicy Bikkuri Ramen, Ebi Buns, Cheese Gyoza from Ramen Bar

It's not a secret on this blog that I love Japanese food. So when I was invited to try out new items at Ramen Bar in Robinsons Magnolia, the foodie in me got excited!

Ramen Bar is located at the third floor of the newly opened Robinsons Magnolia. It's at the left side of the mall, near a rear entrance. You wouldn't have a hard time finding it, since it is brightly lit and has its big sign board.

From the seasonal menu, I ordered the Bikkuri Ramen (Php380), which is miso mixed with chili and minced pork. I was afraid that it's too spicy, but still decided to give it a try. I guess my taste for spicy food has become better and stronger over time. 

I love how the ramen was served fresh and hot from the kitchen. Apart from the fact that it was spicy and very flavorful, Ramen Bar did a good job in making sure the noodles weren't overcooked. The eggs could be a bit wetter, but it's not a biggie. And oh, the minced pork had a generous serving too! I did not make a wrong choice after all. Love it to up to the last drop!

Another something to try are the Ebi Buns (Php220). In between the mantou (Chinese steamed buns) is the  shrimp patty lying on top of a piece of lettuce, flavored with a bit of wasabi mayo. Since I liked it, I took two buns, one after another. If you're afraid of the "wasabi" - please don't, because it's not spicy. It's yummy.

Lastly, I managed to try out the Cheese Gyoza (Php180). At five pieces per order, this appetizer is unique for its combination of cheese and pork, friend to crunchiness. Each bite gave me the usual ground pork mixed with veggies, and of course, the cheese.

Other items included in the seasonal menu are as follows:
  • Shoyu 2.0 Ramen - Shoyu Ramen with a new lighter pork/chicken broth;
  • Kakuni King Ramen - Generous portions of Kakuni in the new lighter soup broth;
  • Curry Chahan  
Depending on how big your appetite is, one could finish a bowl of ramen by himself - just like me. However, those who want to try several other items can make do with sharing two ramen bowls, and additional appetizers and side orders. This way, you'll end up feeling full and satisfied.
