Oh no! There's no Smart Communication GPS signal at Ramen Kagetsu Arashi which is located at Net Lima Park, Bonifacio Global City. Which I envy Jayson for playing & hunting Pokemon because his phone's GPS signal is working with other network. Darn!
Before heading to the main arena which is the Bonifacio High Street, I ordered Arashi Genkotsu Ramen Jr. Size for Php225.00 to fuel my empty stomach and to get ready for the hunt.
Arashi Genkotsu Ramen - ️️️ 3/5
It's flavorful but I think it's a little bit oily.

This is not one of the better ramen places I've ever eaten at. :(
First off, i ordered their basic shio ramen, because the basic broth is my basis for judging ramen. It arrived looking thoroughly unappetizing (didn't even bother to take a photo, I took a photo of the menu instead). Next, the broth tasted more like the water that the noodles were boiled in, with some salt added. It's nowhere near "naturally sweet and refreshingly tasty" as it's described in the menu. The slice of chashu was as thin as a credit card, and I only received ONE slice (picture shows two).
Disappointed with the ramen, I ordered gyoza, hoping that this dish could satisfy what was missing in the ramen. Nope, I was disappointed further. Gyozas came presentable and with a nice bit of crunch on one side, but was salty and I couldn't even taste a hint of pork in the gyozas.
I HATE wasting food and always finish what I order, but today, I left more than half of the noodles and broth, and forced myself to finish the gyoza (i originally left 4-out-of-5 on the plate).
Sorry, but I'm truly never coming back to this restaurant. Kudos for friendly and responsive staff who took my orders right away and offered to refill my water, and took the time to point out what condiments were used for what (labels were no longer readable). But for the taste, and corresponding lack of value for money (I paid around P626), you get a really low rating from me.

Ang picture na ito ay katulad ng lasa ng ramen nila...
Sa sobrang labo hindi ko alam kung ano yung lasa niya dapat.
Yung egg, hard boiled.
Yung pork chashu, mas makapal pa oslo paper.
Yung broth at noodles, ang weird ng lasa. May weird aftertaste.
Para siyang instant cup noodles.
Mas masarap pa nga ata Lucky Me kesa dito eh.
Sayang sa pera. Sayang sa tummy space.
In short, HINDI MASARAP.

This Ramen place has been getting mixed reviews even in their Makati Branch. I guess it's mainly because people come in and expect high quality using Yushoken/Mendokoro as a benchmark. But every ramen place has their own style and Ramen itself has lots of varieties too. Many people, such as I, prefer the rich tonkotsu base. But then I came in with low expectations. Sooo...
Arashi Genkotsu Ramen, however, use a lighter version of Tonkotsu that is quite similar to Kuroda. Not thick but not really that light either. Their soup in my opinion is not that bad. It also has that pork flavor although not as intense as you would expect it to be if you are craving rich tonkotsu.
I didn't like the noodles that much. It has an aftertaste that (for a lack of proper term) I can only describe as "lomi"-like. Is it the starch? I don't know.
The egg is "meh". They use hard-boiled egg. It's not even flavored. But I was prepared for that, by reading previous reviews. For an additional P55 you can get a whole flavored egg as an add-on. But what a waste... even their Flavored Egg is Hard-Boiled to the core (see pic).
Chashu has Flavor but is Paper thin. If you're a Chashu lover, better get their other ramen variant that has lots of Chashu included.
They also boast of their Special Ramen Sauce that you can add to your bowl to elevate the flavors. I was actually excited to try this but it turns out to be just a saltier version of Kikkoman.
Overall, I would say it's good to try but not really worth coming back to considering the quality and price point.

A little too salty. For the price, there are better ramen out there.

Sorry no photo
So, we had team lunch here...and I was already hungry. I stomached in the fact that I'll be eating pork; and realized only after the fact that I really shouldn't had
Ordered the classic ramen (made with garlic pork broth) and it wasn't tasty at all for me. I just see foams of floating pork fat with hints of garlic, noodle wasn't noteworthy, and chashu was thin and tasteless. Good thing I had the junior-sized one; so the damage was kept to a minimum.
I shall not return.
