Ramen Kuroda FTW! I've been hearing a lot of good reviews from this ramen place and it's a good thing that I've tried it already. From an officemate's recommendation, I ordered the Kuro Ramen which is the Tonkotsu ramen with roast garlicky flavor. I was also opting to try Kuro Chashumen which contains more meat, but maybe next time.

My ramen was served after a few minutes from ordering. It was really good ramen. The garlic flavored soup was not too overpowering which made it really good. The noodles were hard which best pairs with the soup. For a very affordable price of Php 180, I was very happy with what I ate.

The ramen place closes at 9:30pm and is located at the 2nd floor of RCBC Tower

Kuro Ramen because it's #RamenWeather once again!

Taste127836: 127775127775127775 The noodles is ok but the soup is kinda weird. It feels like it is just diluted tonkotsu soup powder (just like what i always buy in grocery stores when I was in Japan).

Price🤑: 127775127775127775127775 Relatively cheap compared to other ramen shops like Ramen Nagi, Ippudo, etc. For P180, it is an easy fix for your ramen cravings.

Place127968127775127775127775 The place is quite small and bit hot. The place has a glass divider between the dining and kitchen so that you can see how they prepare your food, which kinda adds a traditonal Japanese ramen store vibe into it.

Well, all I can say is, you get what you pay for. Go here if you have a tight budget but I recommend to go for the high-end ones :)

Went with their aka ramen which is their spicy take on tonkotsu ramen. It was okay but what im happy here was their price which is just around 200 each. Though their ramen was quite chewy, taste of the tonkotsu soup was just okay. I personally prefer this spicy over the garlic flavor.

One rainy afternoon, after my appointment in Solaris one, i looked for a ramen place nearby and i found ramen kuroda.
I ordered the garlic flavored ramen for only php180. It was served right away, talk about fast service. Haha The soup was not garlicky at all and it was kinda bland for me. I had to put lots, as in lots of chili powder and chili oil, I almost finished half of it. Wahahaha The noodles were perfectly cooked and the chasu was flavorful and melts in your mouth good but it was sooo small. 128514128514128514 I should have ordered the large bowl. The egg was half soft boiled.128545128545Haha They also have an open kitchen wherein you can see how they do your ramen, and I saw one server who was not wearing gloves, note that she's the one putting the finishing toppings. Ermhergherd. 128564128564 The place is clean and the servers are attentive!

Not my first time to eat but to review yes. Always busy full of people lunch and dinner time. This is the only ramen resto that i want to return i like their ramen not so strong and i think they put a milk or coconut milk that makes the taste appealing to me. I tasted the spicy version and its also good the hotness is tolerable their price is also reasonable compare to other ramen bar. This rainy season its ramen kuroda all the way.

Well, when visiting the south i saw that there was a ramen kuroda there and its quite popular based on reviews but we all know which ramen joint it is a must in the south 128521 so i guess i had to try this out wherever im at venice mckinley or at makati. So on this rainy night i tried it out here, they close till 9 to 930pm and it was still full when i came here but im sure im one of their last orders.

I think their highlights are of 3 ramen flavors: 1. Plain tonkotsu 2. Tonkotsu with garlic flavor 3. Tonkotsu with spocy kick. Each of these has a respective chasu extra version. So i went for the tonkotsu with garlic ramen. The order was actually quick, as it didnt take a while before it arrive so that was good. But in terms of taste, the tonkontsu broth was a bit disappointment as i guess im used to certain flavors mendokoro, nagi, ippudo or just quite recently yushoken that i didnt find their tonkotsu soup much appealing as there was something missing, if im going to rate the soup it would be a 2 stars to be honest. So it was a best decision to go for garlic flavor as this would mask or add some kick into the tonkotsu that i didnt like much. Or rather next time go for the kara one since it was the majority order of the custimers there that night.

The egg wasnt that soft boiled version that i was expecting, buts thats fine. Chasu was just okay abit small serving. The noodle feels different when chewed upon. Cant explain it.

Interiors were quite good. They had extension tables to outside. The price ive learn was quite different from the one at paranaque and its at 180 a bowl. Not bad as this would generally be a normal mid range makati food price and very cheap for a ramen. I dont know if theres a difference of their ramen with the more expensive ones as compare to others branches but they had me for its price. Definitely a quick fix not so expensive ramen on this rainy weather. Sad i have to give this a 3 coz of other good ramen joints but i woild give this a plus .5 for being reasonably priced. 128522

Looking for an affordable Ramen? Try Ramen Kuroda.
Their standard Ramen costs P180 only, it comes with one chashu and egg. If you want a bigger serving, you can try their Chashumen which only costs P230.

I ordered their best seller - Kuro Chashumen where the serving of chashu is 300% larger. A deluxe bowl of ramen with lashings of thick, melt-in-the-mouth chashu. It was a good ramen, not as tasty as my previous Ramen expeditions but definitely not bad for a very affordable price. 128076🏻

Extras:

Egg - P30
Leek - P30
Noodles - P40
Gyoza - P100
Gyudon - P100

Their Aka Chashumen (P230) is not as spicy as I thought it would be. But the taste was ok, not remarkable but very filling for its price.

2 of my officemates introduced this ramen place to me which was nearby our office or just along ayala. It was just a small ramen place inside the rcbc building. They have a very short and simple menu.

According to their staff their best seller was the kuro chashumen which was just a basic kuro ramen (tonkotsu with roast garlic flavour) but with 3 more roast pork slices. since i was avoiding eating too much meat, it was my first here, i was on a budget and the kuro ramen and chashumen have the same base soup i order the kuro ramen. The kuro ramen costs 180 php while the chashumen was 230 php.

We first ordered at the counter outside before we got seated. I also noticed that extra leek or spring onions costs 30 php. Expensive huh? Anyway our order came at around 5mins.

The soup was served hot and it smelled good. Although i noticed it was a oily but the noodles were plenty. I added some sesame seeds which were free. The soup was a bit salty and garlicky. The soup also includes a half egg but the egg served on my soup was almost cooked, the yolk was not semi raw which was a bit disappointing as i like the yolk raw. The pork slice was not think but not very fatty which i liked.

But hey for a budget ramen this wasn't bad cause usually ramen costs 350+ on other restaurants. The staffs were also very proactive in refilling our water.

I used to frequent RCBC because of my Fitness First membership but Ramen Kuroda somehow escaped my radar. Good thing my friend asked that we meetup here today. And I gotta say I am impressed. I love ramen and even when Kuroda is not as expensive as the other ramen places, I really liked their spicy Aka Ramen (P180), the noodles are thin and the broth is creamy and tasty. I will definitely come back.

I sooo love Ramen! so this is the 3rd Ramen house I've tried.. so far it was ok, the broth was a little salty. Found a Ramen house in RCBC Plaza during my visit to Makati Med. My husband loves it though. It's the 1st time I've brought him with me on my Ramen hunt. But for me it was just ok. From the list that I have tried, it comes 2nd.

1. Santouka Hokkaido in Eastwood
2. Ramen Kuroda in RCBC
3. Ramen Bar in Eastwood (last)

This is the first time I ordered Ramen as in. It was okay, I like the noodles and the soup it's just nakakaumay. Parang gusto ko naman ng something sweet while slurping my ramen. Haha definitely not a fan of Ramen but it's good. 127836 other good side is, it's only P180.00 cheaper compared to other Ramen houses.128076🏼

I wasn't all that impressed when I first tasted the ramen here. The egg in their ramen that time was close to being a boiled one. But this was the nearest ramen place in my office. And the cold rainy weather begged for some ramen. So off we (my colleagues and I) to this ramen joint! I wasn't surprised to see the place packed then. For that night, I tried their Aka Ramen. And boy was that a good one! I liked the heat it packed. I was able to gobble the whole thing as I was really hungry that time. The egg was kinda improving. The meat slice was thin enough but not lean that I could eat the fat. Still, I'm giving it 5 stars bec. the broth and noodles were very spot on. 128076🏻

I've always wanted to try this but over at their BF Homes branch. So when this opened here, I was kinda ecstatic. Tried their Shiro Ramen (as suggested by my friend), and found it just okay. First off, the egg was almost to a boiled point. Not that impressed imo. And the pork was just "meh". But the broth and noodles were good! Those were the winning components of this ramen.

Yes, Ramen Yushoken still holds a special place in my heart. But if ever I'm craving for some affordable good ramen, I know this one is the place to go (plus points too coz it's near my office). 127836
