A quick lunch break here because we had an errand in the area. A very enchanting and charming set up. This is how I imagine the hole in the wall places in Japan.

Hubby and I shared the Chicken Black Pepper Don, Double Cheese Tsukemem and a Katsu Curry Rice. The Chicken was very flavorful. I've had better Katsu and Curry dishes. The Tsukemen was a unique experience but it isn't something I would crave for. Hubby enjoyed everything. I wasn't wowed although the dishes were pretty ok.

The servers had limited interaction and were quite formal.

Overall, I was more impressed with the feel of the place.

Get transported into a Japanese street-food ambiance at Mitsuyado Sei Men. I love the unique look and feel accented by re-created vintage Japanese posters.
We ordered Spicy Miso Ramen and its soooo good. 128077 as well as their gyonza ( the best so far).

Back at Mitsuyado Sei-Men on a rainy Saturday night. Ramen places are jampacked last night, and happy that this place is available. I guess everybody wants something hot on this kind of weather.

Its my 2nd time. I enjoyed the Tsukemen (dipping noodle) last time. I was in the mood for the ordinary ramen. I had the Karashi Noodle. Regular size (P300) is quite big serving. This has a thin slice of pork & mild spicy. I ordered the thick noodles (as recommended by the server). Enjoyed my mild spicy soup, though thick noodles is good, its heavy! Didn't finish the entire bowl. My bf got the Char Siu Ramen (P390) for the regular size. Though I find it bland, must be the strong flavor of my ramen. He says its good.

Prior to our ramen, we had their gyoza (P180 for 5 pcs). Their gyoza is good, it looks like its freshly made compared with other gyoza I tasted. Served hot! This is highly recommended.

For Drinks, I got Coco Royal, Basil with Honey Flavor (P60) refreshing! Taste like sago't gulaman..

Place: The interiors of this place is great! Looks like you're in a vintage Japan. #timemachine. Location is spacious with clean comfort rooms.

Food: I notice a lot of of Japanese peeps dining. Mostly, they ordered the Tsukemen, which is an authentic dish of Mitsuyado. Their ramen is ok, I have other favorite ramen place compared to it.

I had a terrible experience the last time i went here so after more than 6 months we went back hoping that it would be better this time. 128528

Order their cheese tsukemen, it took more or less 15 mins for our order to arrive. The hot noodles was not really that warm, it feels more like lukewarm to cold. And with that the taste of noodles kinda differs. 128528 The dipping soup was really the most disappointing part, it wasnt warm at all, not as cold as your ex but aint warm at all. *hugot. 128517 But seriously it feels like it was badly reheated.

Tried to convinced myself to give this at least 2 stars but my companions had the same feedback and i felt its not my moneys worth and compounded by my previous experience, this may very well be a 1 star. 128533

Another ramen experience @ Mitsuyado Sei-men yesterday in Jupiter St, Makati. As I entered the place, I was quickly transported into a Japanese street-food ambiance. Based on my blog readings, this place is inspired by Shin Yokohama Raumen Museum in Yokohama, Japan. Unlike other ramen places that has modern interiors and design, Mitsuyado has re-created a vintage look.

Aside from the ambiance, I was quite surprised with their noodles. Again, other ramen places have their noodles in rich broth. My date, had requested the server how they make it there. And at first I find it odd & I was hesitant of the idea.

Mitsuyado served their noodles and broth separately. And what's odd, they have 3 classes of sauce to be mixed with noodles. So with the server's recommendation, I tried their cheese ( still feeling hesitant when I ordered). I ordered Karashi Tsukemen ( a spicy pork tonkatsu based sauce)

Noodles are al dente. Mixing it wih cheese sause is kinda exciting. Tasting it is superb then slurp the sauce. Better than I imagined. Definitely a nice ramen experience for ramen lovers.

Their Gyoza is so good also. Its wrapper was thin and meat is tasty compared to what I usually have. I also have their coco royal, its coconut juice with aloe, its refreshing and matched with my spicy noodles.

2 thumbs up for ambiance, food and service.

So in love with the interiors of this place! Each time I post a photo on Facebook, at least one would always comment "Are you in Japan?" "Where is this?!" The place just looks so authentic and picturesque. So I'm posting this photo of us with the background instead of the tsukemen we ordered. 128514

Last night was a great night for some cheese sauce tsukemen! Tsukemen is similar to ramen but with thicker noodles and the sauce/broth is served separately. You basically dip the noodles in citrus-y sauce. Cheese sauce tsukemen is my favorite. It's a perfect mix of salty and sour and one of those combinations you wouldn't think would work but actually does (like fries dipped in sundae! Am i making sense? Haha). Careful though, it has an umay factor. But since they have a sister bakery (Yamato), you can order sweets right after your meal.

Mitsuyado Seimen is one of those places you'd wanna go to for a rainy payday weekend day. And with the recent rain showers that have come with incoming storms, there have been plenty of times for that, but I was waiting for the right time to go with my boyfriend before we hit the MRT to get there. When my backpay came in, we were off.

Located on Jupiter street a few minutes away from the Buendia MRT station, the area is very accessible for commuters, but there's enough parking space for those who'd rather drive. Stepping into the restaurant is like stepping into an old Japanese street, though with the feeling of it being more secure and homey though busy. My boyfriend was already impressed by the decor, but I said that he should wait for the food. I got my usual regular Marutoku Tsukemen and decided to splurge on an order of gyoza, while he ordered a large Yasai Tsukemen at random. We both got cold iced teas to contrast the broth and the barley tea in and of itself was a very welcome and refreshing drink.

When the orders came, we dug in immediately and we both agreed that the flavors were just amazing. He particularly liked the vegetables as a side dish to his broth as the flavors were light and served as a good accompaniment to the strong pork flavors of the dish, allowing both to balance. I got the Marutoku out of habit with wanting a little bit of everything, but I will admit that the ajitama had lost its appeal to me. The pork slices were nothing less than amazing by themselves that I would've happily had that with a nice bowl of rice with its flavor strikingly similar to high quality Cebu lechon, but I wouldn't have had them with the tsukemen. I agree with my boyfriend on the vegetables front, but the surprising suitable mix was the nori. When dipped with the broth, it was an explosion of refreshing seaweed flavor with a lacing of pork that just went so well. Too bad there was only one sheet.

The gyoza wasn't ordinary either. With the strength of the sauce coupled with the surprising juiciness of the gyoza, it was an interesting addition to the meal and served as a good break when we were getting tired of the tsukemen flavor.

All in all, the meal was good and for the price, we got what we paid for and so much more. Mitsuyado Seimen would definitely be a place we would return to again for a special rainy day.

Brought my sister and our friend here after a whole afternoon of checking out cars. It's been quite a long time since I stepped into Mitsuyado's doors, and again, I was not disappointed.

For a change, I got the Curry Cheese Tsukemen. My sister got the Karashi Tsukemen, while her friend ordered the plain Cheese Tsukemen.

The Curry Cheese Tsukemen was good, although I think I would've preferred the plain Cheese one. The Curry was very flavorful, too flavorful that it drowned the taste of the cheese sauce.128517 I would recommend that you get just the plain curry or the plain cheese instead. The noodles were still perfectly chewy like from my last visit.

The Karashi Tsukemen was spicy, but that was not all I could taste. There were hints of sesame and flavorful pork broth in the dipping sauce, as well. My sister kept on raving about it, saying that it's one of the best noodles she's ever tasted haha!

Our friend and I got the regular one, and I can say that their serving is more than enough for one person. We're not very light eaters, yet we all had our tsukemen for takeout

Just minus one star for the waiting time, although it was a bit understandable since the restaurant was almost full. Lots of Japanese expats and families were eating there, so that must count for something, right?128521

The awesome tsukemen, paired with the beautiful interiors and the helpful servers make Mitsuyado a winner in my book.127887 Hope they open a branch in the north!

(Sorry for the blurry photo, I was really hungry already!)

I was feeling a little bloated from binging all week that I opted for something lighter than the Thick Noodles of the Tsukemen.

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen.

The noodles were thin as was specified by me. 128077

The broth was authentic tonkotsu but a bit lacking in flavor. It was too mild a tonkotsu for me. Plus the red ginger didn't help at all since it overpowers the tonkotsu (glad I removed most of it)

The Tamago was flavorful but got a bit overcooked since it was served mixed-in the bowl, the yolk was starting to cook. Still tastes great though.

Chashu was 'meh'. It was tough that I only took 2-3 bites out of it. I think it was an off day for them since the wifey's tsukemen had pork bits that were on the tough side too. Xmas Vacation ang Head Chef perhaps? 128514

Overall I would say their Ramen is not bad but I will stick with their Tsukemen.

Went here with my friend. I love the ambiance and the interior, the place looks like you're on the streets of Japan. We ordered ramen, karaage and gyoza. I forgot the others, but food is good. The serving is big. Price is actually worth it. 127836128523

After reading so many positive reviews on Mitsuyado Sei-Men, I finally had the chance to eat dinner here with friends.

Initial impressions upon entering were a) so glad the resto wasn't packed although it was dinner time and b) I loved the authentic look and feel of the place, with its wooden chairs and very Japanese-like interior design (hanging lamps/chōchin, noren with Japanese characters--the works!) 128522

I ordered a regular Cheese Sauce Tsukemen with hot noodles, while my friends ordered Katsudon, a large Karashi Tsukemen, and Gyoza. As for our choice of drinks, they unfortunately didn't serve tap water so we ordered Coke Light and a bottled water as well.

In preparation for this much awaited event (128523), I actually researched the step-by-step process of how to eat my order (that's how much I value preparedness) 128513 I first poured a bit of the cheese over the noodles, took a spoonful (or a chopstick-ful) then a sip of the soup. The combination was weirdly good, so I poured the whole liquid cheese sauce over the noodles 128076🏼

It was like eating macaroni and cheese then taking a sip of sweet-ish, salty soup. It wasn't extraordinarily, breathtakingly amazing, but delicious and was a unique experience nonetheless. A regular order of the tsukemen was more than enough for a hungry version of myself.

I also had the chance to taste the other orders and they tasted pretty normal; I've actually had better Gyoza and Katsudon in past Japanese resto experiences.

What turned me off a bit was the total bill. We paid around PHP1500 for everything we ordered. A bit on the pricey side, but it was worth trying at least once 128522

Cant imagine giving 1 star for a review much less to my fav tsukemen place. Last night we went here for a quick dinner before heading out to ludo. I got a large cheese tsukemen. But when my order came theres something wrong with the smell of my order. My friends told me its probably the smell of the parmesan cheese of their double tsukemen. Now i should had complained this right away *moral lesson* rather than having bowel problems today.

I wouldnt came back here for a while. 128559

Frequently visit this place. Famous for their dip ramen. A must is to pair it with cheese. 9786

Certainly a must visit because of the restaurant's interior. You get to experience eating in a Japanese street food ambience. I am not a fan of tsukemen since I find it salty. So I tried their traditional shoyu based ramen. Overall it was ok. The noodle is not thin but still al dente. You can also try their other dishes like black pepper chicken teriyaki which is equally good.

I am a fan of authentic ramen. I love the ambiance. "Japanese feels" as I always say. I have tried their ramen with a cheese sauce on it (i forgot the name of the dish) well i am not a fan of cheese in a ramen so i didn't enjoyed it. Imagine you will dip the noodle in cheese then you put in a tonkotsu broth. Most of my friends liked it but not me. But i love their chasyu ramen.

Ramentastic good!!!! The interior was nicely designed. You'll be transported in one of Japan's hole in the wall restaurant! The servers were nice and very attentive. The ramen we ordered was good for 2 already. The soup was also refillable. Its a plus for a soup lover like me. The gyoza was perfectly cooked! There's also a free iced tea. 128077
