I've always wondered why people tag Mendokoro as the best ramen place in the metro, so I know I have to find it out for myself.

Unlike other ramen joints wherein you take your seat, place an order, eat your ramen and pay for your bill, Mendokoro's ordering system has a fast-food style approach wherein you order and pay at the counter, find a seat at their 22-seater U-shaped table, hand your order slip to the attendant and wait for your order to come.

While waiting, you get to see how the cooks prepare your ramen and other items right in front of you. How cool is that?

Anyway, I ordered Shoyu ramen and Gyoza. Let's talk about the Gyoza first. They serve 5 big pieces of Gyoza. The wrapper is of the right thickness, just enough to keep the filling inside. It has a meaty and gingery taste to it which I find really good.

Now the ramen. Good lord!!! This bowl is so delicious! No doubt it's one of the best!!! The broth is milky smooth and gives off a garlicy aroma. You will definitely taste the rich, meaty broth. The noodles are cooked al dente, which gives you that nice bite to it. The grilled pork just melts in your mouth. This is too good!!!

I am now a believer. Mendokoro is one of the best ramens in the metro!

I went with the Super Chashu still since I wasn’t up for seafood yet.

You really can’t go wrong with this choice. It will keep you full so you need to walk it off after eating. 128099

Remember to take out the chili if you’re not a fan of spicy food because biting into one of these little monsters will hurt.🌶

I always see my brother post this on his ig. One night, while waiting for the shuttle, biglang nagkayayaan haha! So I was finally able to try Mendokoro Ramenba! #ooramennga! Hehe!

The place was very nice! It was like Sosyal na Paresan pero ramen naman yung main menu imbes na pares kasi paikot yung upuan nila.

Super daming tao on a Thursday Night ah. Pang 6th group kami sa pila. We paid the bill first then they called us nung may vacant seat na. Very accommodating naman yung crew.

Shoyu daw masarap sabi ng kuya ko so yun yung inorder namin. I really liked it! Solid! Lalo na yung chasu! Yung first bite sa chasu is 10084. Ang sarap ng taba ng chasu tska mas luto sya compared sa ibang ramen place. Napaisip ako kung oorder pa ba ko ng extra chasu haha! Pwede! Next time 128077🏼 I like the soup, di masyadong maalat when you eat with the noodles. Medyo thick yung noodles. 128077🏻

P410 ang isang order ng shoyu tapos nag order din kami ng 5pcs. Gyoza, P200. For me, okay lang yung gyoza. Pero masarap naman tska madaming laman sa loob. 128522

Gusto ko na ulit kumain dito! Haha! Ano pa bang masarap bukod sa tantanmen? kasi di ko keri yung super anghang 128522

S E C R E T M E N U A L E R T !

Ebi Tonkotsu makes it's way from Yushoken to Mendokoro. What was once a Limited Monday Only bowl of ramen in Yushoken is now available in Mendokoro DAILY but for only 10 bowls a day. When I got there at 2pm my bowl was already the 8th. I guess it's not too secret from fellow ramen addicts after all 128513.

127836 E B I T O N K O T S U 127836
Php 560.
Seafood Ramen with a very rich Shrimp flavor. It has Shrimps, Squid, Scallops, Kani Sticks, the works! It's not spicy until you breakdown that stick of chili (I removed mine and requested for crushed garlic instead. PANALO! The garlic enhanced the shrimp flavor even further! 128525).

Shrimp Lovers will definitely LOVE this! 128077128077128077

P.S. Paano ko ba paaabutin ng 1,000 characters ang pagdescribe sa isang bowl ng Ramen?! 128514128514128514 Abot kaya ito? I didn't check though. 9996128513

The Super Chashu is still my favorite ramen here in Mendokoro, followed by their Tantanmen. 128525

That huge and thick piece of marinated chashu is absolutely packed with flavor and does not disappoint. It has enough meat and fat in it for you to enjoy. The broth is thick and creamy and can become quite heavy after a while. The noodles are cooked wonderfully and go hand in hand with the chashu. Also note that they have chopped fresh chili on top, so be careful before you mix it in your ramen. It can be pretty spicy and biting into one of those chili can sting! 🌶

My ever complaint here is that the ramen portion is not enough for this huge piece of chashu. But it will make you really full already.

I also love their gyoza. It's pretty light and can serve as an in-between for the ramen.

Make sure to walk around Salcedo Village after eating the Super Chashu. It's gonna leave you pretty full. 128055

That grilled, juicy, tender and lean burger patty sized braised pork belly on our Super Chashu just won this foodie 10084 of mine, plus their Aji Tamago was purrfect!

What a lucky surprise in Makati when the unexpected drizzle led me walking to the building where Mendokoro Ramenba was. (My first time there.) Had their Tantanmen (P440) which was really rich and good. Something to come back for in Makati.

The best Tantanmen I've ever tasted.128076🏻

For me the best Ramen I've tasted in Manila, better than Ramen Nagi, Ikkoryiu, etc. Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen the best. Order extra Chashu on the side. You will surely come back for more.

Finally, was able to try Mendokoro Ramenba! Had dinner here after my buffet lunch date at Spectrum. Well, there are a lot of restaurants in Makati, and I really want to try all of it! Hehe

My friend and I had Tantanmen, and Hiyashi Chuka Ramen. I must say, it was so good! One of the best ramen places I visited, we were lucky because we did not have to line up to get that delicious bowl of ramen, we were there at around 5pm. Heard the place gets really jam packed during lunch, and dinner time.

Mendokoro Ramenba is ramen joint located at the back side of V Corporate Center (same building where WildFlour and 8cuts Burger Blends is). The setup of their tables is a circular ramen bar good for 25 people. Once you enter you will be asked to order first before you get seated maybe because the number of chairs are very limited. For those who are interested to go here in groups, be sure to be patient as it is tricky to be get chairs immediately especially along side each other. Just in case all seats are filled, they have a waiting area for their customers.

They have 4 tonkotsu ramen flavors (Shio, Shoyu, Tantanmen and the Miso). Aside from ramen, they also serve Tsukemen and Cold Ramen. Tamago is sold separately at Php 90. Available sides will be the Gyoza which is usually paired with the ramen.

I ordered the Tantanmen during my last visit since I wanted to veer away from the usual Shio or Shoyu ramen orders that I had in the past. For those who are not familiar, a Tantanmen usually has a orange colored soup with a spicy flavor topped with ground pork. Serving size of Mendokoro's ramen is big but good for 1 person only. Their Tantanmen is just mild and not overwhelming in the palate which makes it easy to eat (especially if you are weak to anything spicy) and on it also has a really good flavor. The ground pork toppings also blended well with the the soup which made it more delicious that I almost forgot to eat their noodles. Their noodles on the other hand are wavy and were cooked medium/hard.

Based on my last visit, I can definitely say that I will be coming back for more Tantanmen ramen at Mendokoro. This won't be the last, I am very sure of that.
