We've seen this place a dozen times whenever we visit Maginhawa Street, and a long line of customers always waiting to be seated. I became really curious and so last Friday evening i 128663 drove to QC and waited patiently 128018 for my name to be called. It didn't take long to get a table that time and a guy assisted us with our orders.

In the 1-page menu that the guy handed us, it was so hard to choose! Okay, so they have noodles, and dumplings, and refreshments; that's it.

So here's what you need to do:

1. Choose your topping
-all veggie (Php175)
What you get? Tofu and vegetarian meat strips
-pork (Php195)
It's pork asado strips 128022
-beef (Php205)
Yeah, you got it, beef slices 128046
-seafood (Php220)
I love this! It has shrimp, fish and squid 128149

2. Choose your broth
-Szechuan
I recommend this broth, this is spicy with mushrooms, greens and fried egg 127836
-Asam Laksa
Yep, you read it right. It's a spicy fish paste broth with strips of cucumber, bits of pineapple and boiled egg
-Classic
This is basically pork broth. Of course with the mushrooms, greens and fried egg

3. Choose your noodle
-wheat noodle
I recommend this if you like japanese style ramen
-egg noodle

4. Choose the burn
Read the name of this place. Caution! Hot. Lol

We ordered:
Szechuan broth, with pork toppings-wheat noodle 127836127858 and also seafood (we chose egg noodle for this one). And prefer a not so spicy noodle soup so we opted the 2nd degree Burn 128076. And don't forget to try Kuchay pork dumpling, Php60 for 5 pieces.

And they also have Tsingbao beer (Php95), Oolong milktea with grass jelly (Php75) and iced tea. :)

Chose Beef, Egg Noodle in Sze Chuan broth (1st degree burn), then ordered Kutchay Dumplings.

Broth was excellent and beef was tender, the wrapper/ filling ratio of the kutchay dumplings was on point and it goes well with the black vinegar.

Only complain I had was we waited for 45 minutes just to be seated.

This was our fourth stop for the Maginhawa foodtrip my friends and I had in September. Noodle house! I haven't been to many noodle houses, so this one quite excited me.

THE FEELS
The ambiance looked authentic Chinese, which I loved a lot, and it happened to be perfect for the weather because it was raining heavily when we went. Talk about being at the right place at the right time. The space, however, was quite small for a bestseller noodle joint. Good we didnt have to fall in line that day.

THE TASTES
We didn't have enough time as I had to catch a flight, so we skipped the DIY style. But I suggest you try customizing your noodles, pick your broth, and everything. That is, if you're familiar of what the items are. Otherwise, settle for the hot combinations as we did.

We had a big bowl of Beef-Szechuan-Egg Noodles (P185), 1st degree burn; and another bowl of Seafood-Asam Laksa-Wheat Noodles (P205), 2nd degree burn. That was good for four because the serving size was really big (for us). Yeah, tasted good. Just the right taste of everything. And it was deliciously HOT!

And then we had some pork dumplings (5 pcs, P110), which I didn't fall in love with because of the vinegar. Didn't quite match the taste.. Perhaps some saltier dip would complement?

OVERALL, I would recommend Caution Hot. There are many combinations you can play with, all perfect for the cold and rainy days.

After a few attempts of eating here finally its happening!

Luckily they have this wednesday special, the hot and sour soup which happened to be a warning-too-spicy broth and so i chose it along with all-veggie, wheat noodles, and an ultimate level of spiciness while le boyfie ordered their szechuan broth with beef, egg noodles and just their 3rd level of spiciness, upon ordering mine, for the nth time i got underestimated with that "sure ka ma'am?!" Question/warning haha well as i usually answer them, yes! with confidence haha, and just to have some slight humor i tried to asked the server "sure ka spicy?' Hahaha

Anyway, after a few sips and munch on the noodles i can say that it was spicy! Haha made me all teary as if i was crying, i'm not the type of person who sweats alot while eating spicy food, my eyes does all the sweating 128514 and everytime inreach that point where i get all teary as if i'm crying that's when i consider it spicy, and despite the intense burning sensation the broth was still rich in flavor that the spice doesn't overpower the flavor, that sour broth full of veggies, mushroom, and strips of tasty ham, really enjoyed it and the serving was huge! I got so full and became all groggy after eating haha talk about #buhaybaboy moment

When i come back, i'll dare my friends to beat my spice tolerance 128069🌶

No cold weather can stop me from eating this yummy Bao Bing!

It offers a good price. The place also and the staffs as well are accommodating. We visit this place at least thrice a month. Not only their desserts are good but everything in their menu!!

Always craving for their Dumplings 10084

Excited to make this review! Who in the world won't want Huge Ramen Bowls.128525128525128525 still can't get enough of it. Surprisingly i finish the whole bowl because it is really good, awesome goodness i can't even explain it in words. Haha! Compared to other ramen restos around the metro they offer really good amount of serving with an affordable prize. Imagine you can have a bowl of ramen with less than 200 pesos. We ordered 2 Beef Szechuan with egg noodles - 1st degree burn, 1 pork asado Szechuan with egg noodles - 2nd degree burn and 1 pork asado Szechuan with wheat noodles - ultimate burn. You can actually guess what's the ultimate burn in the photo. Ok clue (bloody broth)128569 i prefer the first degree burn because i don't think i can handle the ultimate burn so i settle on the safe side. Ahah! We also ordered pork dumplings and the one with vegetables. The staff was very accommodating even though she's alone. She's doing her job really well. The place itself is quite small with 6 tables. Before you can get in you have to sit and wait outside because there is plenty of people also waiting inside. That's how this resto is making a hit! Another hole in the wall. A great find in Maginhawa. And we will definitely come back. 1108811088110881108811088

I was searching on |ooloo while we drove around Maginhawa area when we suddenly saw this restaurant. The name caught our attention. Even though the temperature was hot, we decided to try the food.

We came here during their soft opening. I ordered their Beef Szechuan Egg Noodle Ultimate Hot Combination. The noodles can be good for two people if you're not that hungry. Just order more dumplings. All soups are topped with a fried egg, which I find a little bit off because it became a different entity and separated from the soup's flavor.

The space itself was nothing special. We are surprise because the broth and ingredients are so riched and flavorful, you will never thought that for only a less than Php 200 you can have that big bowl of Ramen with lots of flavors. I remember what we felt after that meal. I really enjoyed it here and was so full after eating that I couldn't walk.

Definitely worth trying for those who love extreme noodles. I do hope that they will have a wider variety of menu so that we can have more options.

If your craving for a noodle/ramen. Caution Hot! is the place to go. ✔️good food & ✔️budget friendly though it has a long queue but never mind it because it's worth the line.

My staple order: Beef Ramen, Szechuan Base, Wheat or Egg Noodle, Level One Burn. Pork Kuchay Dumplings and end it with a serving of Bao Bing or their halo-halo version.

Masarap naman 'yung food. And mabubusog ka talaga sa mga dishes kasi marami na per bowl. 4 star lang kasi hindi nalilinisan ng maayos ang lamesa kapag may bagong kakain at pati 'yung floor madumi. Overall satisfied naman ako. :)

If you are craving for a ramen that fits a student-budget, Caution:Hot! is the place to go. This is also one of the first restaurants I go to after being in the field hehe.

Since we eat here regularly, we already have a staple order: Seafood Ramen, Szechuan Base, Egg Noodle, Level One Burn. We pair it with ten pieces of Pork or Kuchay Dumplings and end it with a serving of Bao Bing or their halo-halo version.

Always good to eat here 10084

Caution Hot! is definitely one of those "hole in the wall", small start-up places that Maginhawa is famous for, but I would think that this would be one of its many highlights. Besides being one of the only places to offer really good noodle soup similar to ramen, it has items on the menu to cater to whatever you feel like for the day with its mix-and-match style while being big in size and awesome in flavor.

My boyfriend and I go here a lot -- especially when one or the other craves for their flavor or when we just feel like going on a cold and/or rainy day. My ideal combination of items are All-Veggie Classic with Wheat noodles, Kutchay-Pork dumplings and a glass of their house blend iced tea, while my honey loves either a Beef or All-Veggie Szechuan with Wheat Noodles.

Let's give a breakdown of what we love about each: I love the clean and clear pork flavor in the classic broth as it works very well with the kind of vegetables used in the All-Veggie option, especially the mushrooms and greens. The veggie meat allows for a nice chewy contrast for when I look for meat during the meal, but I like having a side of Kutchay-Pork dumplings to go with it so it can turn into a sort of wanton noodle soup. If the dumplings are dipped in the provided vinegar beforehand, it provides a refreshing sour flavor that makes you want to eat more. The iced tea is good as a palette cleanser when all the savory flavors get too much, so after a (long) sip (or two), it'll be time to dig in again.

I know that my honey loves quite a few things about the Szechuan option -- the peanut flavor in the sauce, the rich body that the soup has with the Chinese spin to it and the impact of the spiciness that the Classic soup lacks. It can go well with either beef or all-veggie as it turns into a heavier meal if the former is selected, while becoming a sort-of mapo tofu if you go for the latter. He sometimes orders iced tea as well, but soy milk would also be a good option, if it gets too spicy to handle.

Overall, Caution Hot! is one of the regular spots we go to for good food in Maginhawa and with what they offer, that isn't going to change anytime soon. Our only hope is that they can expand to have more space and more seats as the food they have may be in demand more and more these days.

I went here with my cousins a while back. One of them suggested this place, and with me being a lover of spicy food, just had to try it out!

The establishment wasn't anything flashy, with just normal tables, benches, and a few chalk drawings on the wall. It also wasn't that big either, but it didn't feel cramped. There weren't any other customers around at that time, but I could imagine the hectic crowd control during peak days/hours. All in all, the atmosphere was pretty simple for a noodle place.

My cousin ordered ramen for me, but I took it up a notch and made it super spicy. Aside from the noodles, I also ordered unli soya milk. I was surprised by how large the servings were! The price was definitely worth the size of the meal. The spiciness also delivered as I found myself constantly asking the kind waitress to refill my soya milk (a MUST have when going spicy!). The three of us weren't able to finish our meals and had them for to go instead.

If you wanna eat somewhere with friends or family and have a taste for hot stuff, I suggest going here. It's a great place for sharing and the price is really well met!
