I'm not a fan of ramen but I loved this! Would definitely go back. Signature Happiness Ramen P480 and Drunk Man Rice Boowl P240. 128077🏼 However, it felt hot in there and the high chair was uncomfortable for me.

we were invited to have early dinner here with friends- but after a not-so-great- experience at their trinoma branch, i was a bit skeptical. true enough, the food is exactly the same. the ramen lacked depth of flavour, and the noodles were soggy. the only big difference is from their trinoma branch is the service. the crew was attentive and in high spirits.

The food was good but too oily for my preference. The design and layout of the restaurant was not very impressive as it felt cramped even though there weren't a lot of people inside. What I like about the place though was their excellent customer service. The food was served in no time and the servers were pleasant and very attentive.

My boyflet (lel jk) have always wanted to eat ramen but since the weather is crazy hot and I'm not a fan of ramen.... We would always eat at other restos. I dunno kung paano ako napilit kumain dito hahaha but I would often read in looloo how good the Happiness bowl was (and I wanted to try ALL the restos in The Grove!) so I gave in.

I obviously got the Happiness bowl and man, did it make me happy. I loved the thick slab of pork included in the ramen. The very fast serving time was a factor too, we got our orders in less than 5 minutes. At P480, it will definitely make your wallet sad but your taste buds and tummy will feel otherwise.

If you love ramen... pork ramen in particular, this place is for you! Try their signature Happiness Ramen and I am sure you will be more than satisfied. The broth is reaĺly good and the barbequed pork is sinfully indulgent and really succulent. Warning: their serving is huge 128517 I am sure you will be back for more!

If you are in a group, you can order their karaage (chicken) or shrimp tempura on the side to share!

Real happiness! That's what I'd call their signiture ramen because it's true. 128523 The broth is not very salty and without a taste of pork fat. It's just the perfect pair to the meat that oddly tasted like....humba. 128566 Forgive my common taste, I know it's weird but it's actually good! I like the added sweetness and roasted flavor when you pair the meat with the noodles and the soup.

Their interiors look beautiful too. Plus, I enjoyed their good selection of eastern House-like music. Made it feel like a fully conceptualized ramen experience! 128077

Chicken karaage 220php
Signature happiness ramen 480php

The chicken is super tender inside and crunchy outside :)

The happiness ramen has shoyu tonkotsu broth with soft bone pork rib. The pork is perfectly marinated and is super soft. I don't usually finish the soup when eating ramen but finished this one.

That particular bowl in the photo is called the "Happiness Ramen" and it did leave a smile on my face afterwards 128523 Tasty, light soup base and thin noodles make that delicious and tender piece of beef a delightful meal. Don't over-expect on the ramen so best to have that famous tempura as well. The shrimps are quite big so they may be a little tough for some but they really are quite the bargain. Good timing is also of the essence as sometimes service can be slow despite the full staffing.

For people who can't finish off that big slab of Rib on the Signature Happiness Ramen then the SpareRib Ramen is for you. They are similar but the SpareRib Ramen comes with just the right amount of Meat that won't get you cloying. Plus it's a lot cheaper too. 128522

Because I missed ramen so much, and my friends haven't tried it yet I have decided to celebrate my birthday in advanced with them at Hanamaruken at The Grove (my birthday is on the 23rd and I'll be spending the rest of my Christmas vacation in Bulacan)

Hanamaruken never disappoints. From the courteous and smiling staffs, down to their fast service. And of course, the flavorful broth!!! Aww! I love Hanamaruken. And the feels of Japan in their interiors and music. I really commend their staffs, more than good food, I'll always look for good accommodation.

When you want Japan vibes and you don't have the money to go there, just go to Hanamaruken and you'll have that Japan vibes + legit ramen + their aji tamago... yay! I just did not like their house (barley) tea, it was cold lol.

And yes, advanced happy birthday to me + joining #12Days 128157

A ramen breakfast run with my sister today. When it comes to ramen we only crave the happiness ramen. Truly a signature dish that leaves you satisfied. Compared to Ippudo, Ramen Nagi and etc. Hanamaruken is most memorable for us.

The happiness ramen Php480 has the softest pork, tastiest broth and firm noodles, generous spring onions too.

The service was fast, we ordered prawns as our appetizer but the noodles came first, I wanted to cancel the supposed appetizer since I was enjoying my noodles already because tempura ain't really my thing but I was too late so I instagrammed the prawns instead of the photo above hehe.

And the fat is so delicious it really melts in your mouth! I feel so bad eating it.

As for the prawn tempura Php480 it was beautifully plated and serving is generous, good for two. It was a little too oily but good enough.

An extra aji tamago (egg) is Php50 by the way and the green tea iced tea was quite refereshing, just too pricey it was around Php100.
Also they serve house (barley) tea 128522128077🏻

I will always recommend Hanamaruken ramen for it has never disappointed me and my sister.

Here's to hoping #12Days 127873

When I like something, inaaraw-araw ko. 128514

Went back here to sample some more of their Signature Happiness but then i asked the server the difference between that and the Spare Rib ramen and the apparently they ate just the same aside from the fact that the pork rib in the latter is the shredded version of the Signature Happiness. And so I opted for the Spare Rib Ramen so I wouldn't get umay from the gigantic slab of the Happiness. This time i got to focus on the broth and I noticed it get very salty towards finishing the bowl. I guess it's the nori on the side and the additional salt from the shredded pork when you mix it in. Either way masarap pa din. #teamramen 128522

Special thanks to Odell R for the tip. Didn't know that Hanamaruken already had branches at The Grove and ATC. Finally got to try their Signature Happiness Ramen! Been meaning to for some time now but Trinoma is just very far and traffic there is horrible. 128545

I now understand the fascination with their Signature Happiness Ramen. The broth is just right and not too oily and thick that is until you poke around that big slab of pork. What's up with that? It's really huge! It's so huge that I got to finish off the Soup and noodles but got "umay" with the pork. Don't get me wrong though, the pork was great but it's just so big nakakapagod kainin. 128514 Siguro kung hindi ako nag Tsukemen earlier I might've finished everything. 9996128514

Evidently, baby Chloe loved it too. Inunahan pa ko 128514128514128514 #teamramen

had the edible friend beans on pods, can't recall what hap name it's called, RBI tempura w fried rice , and ramen bowl. Their food tastes great!! not too oily and their ebi served w heads, which is great by me. we might have chosen a 'too small table' for four coz the bowls were huge and their were even decors added to the usual condiment bottles. By the time we had all orders served, there wasn't much space for anything more and the table looked too messy. Just a small issue, as both me and our host promised I mention it on a food blog, it's the fort japanese restaurant we've gone to that didn't allow the food servers to serve the noodles on separate bowls. We had requested assistance as the hair away clearly having difficulty in separating the noodles from it's big serving bowl to individual ones With the price they attach to their food, we were indeed surprised that they weren't allowed (accdng to the waiters) to assist their customers w this simple task. Nevertheless, their staff was quite polite and had sincere smiles on their faces. For jap food lovers , aiming for real authentic taste, this one still gets a thumbs up, in my opinion.
