I love tsukemen and its their specialty! The dip tastes really good as well as the noodles. We were pleasantly surprised when we came in because the interior is exactly the same as the Ramen Museum in Japan! Its not as flavorful as my fave Ramen place but its still good and we will go back. I think the price is really competitive maybe that's why the place is always packed. We ordered tsukemen, Ramen, gyoza, basil seed drink and 2 draft beers for only Php1200+ not bad for a ramen place :)

that instant tokyo ambiance! 128518
stepping inside would turn your vibe into that tokyo street food stalls! great job for the interiors! 128077🏻

okay, first off.. the gyoza is juicy and soft, loved it! 1 isn't enough 128586 the teriyaki chicken is.. heaven! i love the sweetness and softness! and for the ramen.. the shoyu 127836 complements the weather (rainy and grumpy outside) very well, the large size serves 2-3 or even 4 persons! really good and filling! we also tried the charsiu tsukemen, next time we'll get the cheese 🧀
this one is a great place to dine in with family and friends! thanks for that short japan experience, mitsuyado sei-men 128556

okay, first of all, the interior is super cool it almost feels like you're in Japan. And you have the pleasure of watching the chefs in the process of making their noodles through the glass windows as shown above. They serve their food in a very generous amount that a bowl of miso ramen was already enough for two people (( me and my friend )). Also had their tonkatsu, and bingsu for dessert. Freaking delicious.

We went to this restaurant for lunch last Friday. We went here since I wanted something cheesy and they have a cheesy tsukemen that really looked delicious. By the way, this was my third time to try Mitsuyado, but my first time to have the cheese tsukemen.

So we arrived a little past 12nn and there were around 3 empty tables left. We chose to be seated near the window, since the other choice was somewhere near the restrooms (and the other seats were for large groups).

I ordered their double cheese tsukemen (regular) for P370. I think the only difference of the cheese tsukemen from the double cheese tsukemen was that the latter was topped with parmesan cheese for an extra P20.

I was so excited when my order came. The server also taught me how to eat the ramen: you pour the cheese all over the noodles, mix it, and then dip it in the broth before eating. So what I first did was I took photos, and of course a boomerang clip of me pouring the cheese 128518

I first poured half of the cheese provided and made a taste test to make sure that it wasn't too salty yet. I still wasn't able to taste the cheese so I poured it all in. I then tried it again, and it was okay. I thought it was going to be salty because it was cheese, but it wasn't.

I then started dipping the cheese covered noodles in the broth. It was disappointing. I don't think the cheese and the broth are a good idea to combine. It wasn't really bad, but there's nothing in the dish that would make you feel like it's unique. There was no spark haha! No widening of the eyes moment. Parang pilit. I wasn't even able to taste the cheese as it was overpowered by the saltiness of the broth. (But good thing the cheese wasn't salty as well)

Service was good. They don't have service water, so if you really want water, you're gonna have to order the bottled ones. But they do serve tea (cold or hot).

Overall, my dining experience was okay. I think it's possible for me to crave for the cheese tsukemen again, but I know I won't give in to it that easy.

Upon entering Mitsuyado Sei-Men, I felt as if I've been transported to an old Japanese street - wooden houses and establishments, hanging Japanese lanterns, bikes, cloths for doors, wooden tables and chairs, Japanese signs, etc.

I absolutely loved it. It was like I was in Japan and it made me fall in love with a country I haven't even been to.

But I wish I loved everything else about the restaurant as much as I did the interior.

Let's start with the menu. Other than it having Japanese in it (for their Japanese customers), it was pretty boring and well... it didn't look too appetizing.

We decided to go with ramen - Karashi Ramen (spicy ramen) and Char-siu Ramen (one of their best sellers for the ramen). Ramens come in thick (as in super thick) noodles but you can request for the thin ones, which we did. You also have a choice if you want that in regular (your average size ramen just like the ones from Ramen Nagi, for example) or large (which for me, is good enough for 2 people).

We went to the Yamato Bakery beside it (more on that in a separate review) while waiting for the food. So when we got back, the ramen's soup already had a thin film on top. But that's just fine. What was more concerning for us was the lack of flavor with the ramen. For the Karashi, it seemed like chili (flakes/oil, not sure which one they put) was all it had going on for the dish. Don't even get me started on the Char-Siu. While there was a generous amount of toppings on the ramen (I think for the Char-Siu, there were 5 or 6 pieces of chashu in there), nothing else made me happy with the dish.

Plus, the service is not that great. Servers barely spoke and barely glanced at their customers. No "Char-Siu Ramen, maam, sir" or "enjoy your meal! *insert happy face*". Speaking of happy faces, it would seem like it's illegal to smile in this place. Everyone's frowning. I definitely didn't feel welcome in this place.

The worst thing is there's no free water (aka tap water). What restaurant doesn't give water to its customers? We're the type to not waste money on getting sodas or juices or bottled water. So we just ended up requesting for house tea. Free tea but not water? Weird.

Overall, it was a little disappointing. If the service made up for the bland dishes, I would maybe even consider going back. But no. Sorry, cool interior that transports me to the streets of Japan, I'll definitely miss only you about this place.

Cheese tsukemen? Intense lol we were feeling a bit daring, we got the one with parmesan and then was so nervous after since we didn't want it to go to waste, just in case we didn't like it but well, well, well... What a hot interracial affair128514! We loved it a lot! I would suggest not to dump all the cheese on your noodle since it does have a tendency to get salty. Good thing, we were on a conservative mood at first 128513. Anyway, it went so well with the dipping sauce that had a strong citrus flavor to it. The miso ramen was so packed with stuff but a little salty. Ths gyoza was filled generously and the teriyaki chicken rice was so-so. The noodles are cooked well though the broth was a bit cooler than we prefer it. The staff were so nice and accommodating too. Can't wait to go back here! 128523128523128523

Oh wow! Lots of recos for this place, thanks guys!128522

Mitsuyado has been around for a while, but it was our first time to try it out today. The moment I entered, I immediately loved the ambience... It's like walking around the streets of Japan... Nice interiors and wide space, they made use of the area from top to bottom...

We ordered tsukemen, of course! I tried the bestselling cheese tsukemen, while my bf tried the aji-tama tsukemen... Hot noodles for both... We also shared an order of gyoza, which was just okay...

Essentially, a tsukemen is a dipping ramen... Think deconstructed ramen, with the noodles separate from the broth... It helps keep the noodles firm, especially when you request for cold noodles... The cheese sauce can be used as a dipping sauce or can be poured on top of the noodles directly... The aji-tama has the same broth base, but with an additional egg... The broth had beef and pork mixed in, smelling wonderful as it was set down the table.

Straight off, it was difficult to eat... I poured my cheese sauce on top of the noodles and coated the whole batch... It added a great textural element that it otherwise wouldn't have had... But I didn't like the broth, I found it very very salty... The bf agreed... I usually just share a coke in can with my bf, but this time, we consumed one each... We both found it super salty... I'm not sure if it was just this batch, but I could barely finish half of my order... It is definitely an acquired taste...

The efficient service and wonderful ambience saved the experience for us, but I'm peetty sure that I won't be craving for this anytime soon... The best ramen in the metro remains to be Mendokoro/Yushoken for us...128522

Mistuyado Sei-men is known for their tsukemen, or dipping noodles so when I finally got a chance to try it, I ordered the curry cheese tsukemen! I love curry and cheese, so why not put them together?! 128556

I liked the curry dip and the cheese dip was really cheesy and creamy!! It was quite heavy after a while but I was still able to finish it. 128055

I still prefer soup over dipping the noodles, with the exception of cold soba. 128517 But it was still a good experience. I'll probably have to try other options here to make me love it. 128514

If you're looking for authentic Japanese food, this is one of the place to be. My in-laws who'd been in Japan for 17 years say so.

Back to Basics! Double Cheese Tsukemen FTW!

I just love how the Cheese Sauce adds texture to the already creamy Tsukemen Dip. You can also just add the Cheese Sauce directly on the Noodles and you got a Mac&Cheese of sorts 128513.

Fair Warning: Tsukemen is not for everyone. It is an acquired taste. It's quite addicting though once you understand all the different elements that come into play. *naks128514

I totally love the ambience of the restaurant! I felt like i was in japan, with the cute stalls in the side and somehow they recreated the atmosphere of the houses in the side with the balconies and stuff. Damn and i loved the pepper chicken! Kinda made me wish i ordered rice haha! But i was full with the ramen accompanied by gyoza and tempura. Haha! Must see for jap lovers hehe

I'm in Japan!!! 128539
I must say this is a perfect resemblance of the streets in Japan! Hubby says so...coz I haven't been to Japan yet. 128539

I love the effort they gave to make it look like this...the high ceiling to show the second level of every house or establishments, the hanging Japanese ornaments, street food carts, curtain door with japanese characters at the entrance of the CR, display bicycle outside a bakery...ang cute!!!

Hubby and I were trapped in a bad traffic that night, (which happens every single day in Manila, right?) we decided to have dinner here somewhere and ended up eating Japanese food. We ordered Tempura, a cup of rice, soda and Gyudon.

I'd say I did enjoy the Tempura a lot! Their version of Gyudon is a bit sweeter to me. I think it's the sauce that they poured sa rice. I like Yoshinoya's gyudon the best! Here, pink ginger is not unlimited but with charge na upon requesting. 128541

The bill is 500. Nice and romantic dinner date na din because of the place and not crowded. I just thought the staffs should be going around and not stay in one corner and keep chatting. 128513

Wrong order. We ordered the ramen which is not the store's best seller. It tasted like lomi. ':/ but i'll give this another shot. I'll order the cheese tsukemen next time.
