Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen

It's no secret that I love Japanese food I do have a penchant for noodles. When entering Japanese restaurants, I default to ordering ramen almost instantly. I often crave for a bowl of steamy ramen especially when I'm swept by the chilly winds. Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen falls under this noodle fixation and I wouldn't pass up on experiencing legit, authentic Japanese food.

This noodle joint originates from Fukuoka, Japan with over 150 branches in Tokyo, Osaka, Taiwan, Thailand and China. Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen offers crowd-drawing Japanese fares, and
 the star of any  Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen adventure are its tonkotsu-based noodles.

Ajitama Tonkotsu (₱ 230) is a delicious bowl of ramen goodness. The rich pork bone broth comes with chashu (soft braised pork), , bamboo shoots, wood ear, nori plus flavorful Japanese soft-boiled eggs (ajitama).

Miso Tonkotsu (₱ 300) has dashi-based tare (miso paste), chashu pork belly that boosts its rich broth.

I love anything garlicky so I went in for the intriguing variant, which is the Black Garlic Tonkotsu (₱ 280). Its special roasted garlic oil makes the soup black, which complements the thin, yet koshi ramen noodles.

Those craving for rice may opt for Chashu Yakimeshi (₱ 250) instead. This Japanese fried rice comes complete with chashu.

The appetizers were equally good as well. Each Gyoza (₱ 180) piece is juicy and nicely seared on one side. Their take on Karaage (₱ 300) is one of the best I've tried. Underneath its crispy skin, is succulent, plump, and tender meat. These savory been a part of my ramen adventures. Its pan-fried portions make each bite enjoyable

Get your fill of these hot dishes and see why it is worth the trip!
