Was in a meeting in the area and decided to have dinner before braising the heavy traffic going home. I'm not really a ramen person but I could say this was not bad.

I had a Kuro Ramen at it was reasonably priced at P180. The place was a bit small though.

Ramen Kuroda is most affordable ramen place i know of. You can get a fix of your ramen cravings for as low as 200! And if you're feeling a little bit more hungry, they have set meals too! I frequent this place because I love noodles. 128536128536128536
For this visit, I ordered the chicken teriyaki set meal. For my ramen, I always choose aka ramen, this is the spicy one. It's just mildly spicy, which is good for me. The broth is creamy and tasty. There are condiments on the side. You can add togarashi, toasted sesame seeds, chili oil to suit your liking. I usually add toasted sesame seeds to... everything.. 128540 My friend ordered gyoza and ramen. The gyoza was good too.

For lunch, my workmates decided to try this place.

Since I am not a fan of ramen, I checked the menu for rice meals.

I ordered their Tonkatsu set (tonkatsu, cabbage, rice and your choice of ramen...also with fruits - mango and watermelon) for P360

I chose Aka Ramen because I wanted my soup spicy. Yun lang, its not really spicy...

But surprisingly, I was satisfied with the food and enjoyed my lunch. Food is good. Mejo nagiba ang pananaw ko sa pagkain ng ramen... Haha! And yeah I used spoon and fork instead of chopsticks...

Even my clumsiness in holding chopsticks (I will never, ever learn how to properly eat with chopsticks) won't stop me from enjoying Japanese food.

My date and I went to Venice Piazza Grand Canal Mall for the first time, sort of our post-Valentines date. For our dinner, we went to Ramen Kuroda since we wanted to have a noodle meal.

We chose the cheapest ramen available, the Kuro Ramen (₱180). I'm also a fan of anything garlic, so I thought the Kuro Ramen would taste good. It had chashu (pork) and soft-boiled tamago (egg).

And it did taste good! We even added crushed sesame seeds and chili powder for some more kick. For such a price, it was a big bowl enough to satisfy both of us.

The yellow mango shake (₱50) was something we shared. It looked creamy and you'd never think that it had some ice because it looked really smooth. It tasted yummy.

Good first experience at Ramen Kuroda! Now dreaming of the garlicky Kuro Ramen as I'm typing this. 127836128077

Best place to eat affordable ramen in Manille!

The kuro ramen is good. (Black garlic tonkatsu ramen)

The aka ramen is supposed to be a spicy miso ramen but there's a hint of fishy aftertaste. It's still okay though.

If you want good and budget friendly Japanese food particularly ramen, you hafta try this place!!!!!!

For the ramen, we tried: Shiro Chashumen (230) and Aka Ramen (180). I like how creamy the soup based was, and for less than 300 pesos - the quality of their noodles was really really goooood. I ordered Aka since I love spicy food

And then, my other friend who (sadly) doesn't eat ramen - ordered Katsudon (220) I had a bite, it was good too! Sauce wasn't too sweet, and serving was okay

We also got Salmon Roll (300) for sharing cause duh, salmon sushi is a must!!!!!

Am i coming back? YUH

When you go to Ramen Kuroda, you should know what you're getting in to. The price should be enough to let you know that you should not be expecting to see angels when you dine here. They are on the budget side and is smartly located at a work area albeit being inside a mall. Each bowl comes with half an overcooked softboiled egg (don't complain it's not perfect) and a slice of chashu.

Budget ramen on a rainy season? Ramen Kuroda is your best bet if you just want something to warm your soul!

I'm well aware of the hype around ramen places, but I can't bring myself to pay close to 500 PHP / 10 USD for a bowl of ramen noodles from the popular chains. Ramen Kuroda sets to undercut the market with their value for money bowls starting as low as 180 pesos.

FOOD 4.0
Shiro Ramen (180 + PHP)
Featuring their homemade wheat noodles in a light tonkotsu broth and topped with a single slice of pork. Their salt level is low to medium and surprisingly not overly oil as I usually expect from places like Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen. I'm satisfied with this simple bowl of noodles, that I would have during rainy or cold days.

AMBIANCE 3.0
I had a table outside overlooking the Grand Canal, which I prefer over their stuffy indoor dinning area with its unresolved ventilation issues even after 5 months of operation.

SERVICE 3.5
Waiters are stationed at both indoor and outdoor dining areas and are ready to help.

I love the ambiance in this place. It feels like authentically Japanese.

I tried the shiro chashumen. And it's so cheap compared to other Ramen places. It's just 200+.

I usually don't order the spicy ramen but I always add chili powder to my ramen because I like it spicy my way. Hehe.

First impression: there wasn't a lot of meat in there. Boo! I like my meat, okay. And no, taba (ano ba English ng taba? Fats? But it sounds like I'm referring to MY fats) does not count as meat. There's more taba in there than the actual meat. 128551

The soup was okay. Not very impressive but not disgusting or whatever. Just okay.

But what I absolutely love about the ramen is the EGG! You have to know that I totally dislike boiled egg. Anywhere. So I don't really like egg in my ramen (please don't shoot me). But their egg was very yummy. It seems to be seasoned or something.

Overall, it's just okay. Affordable ramen. Will go back to try their other dishes. They have set menus and everything (unfortunately, my small body cannot take that much food no matter as much as I wanted it to. Haha.)

The place plays Japanese Pop songs. The ramen I ordered was Aka Ramen. Great broth. Spicy but not too hot. Hand pulled noodles tasted great with nice texture to it. It didn't feel rubbery or like that of instant ramen. Lots of scallions and chasu made it really flavorful. Food is reasonably priced.

Here's my ramen house ranking as of May 2016

#1 Ryu Ramen
#2 Ramen Nagi
#3 Ramen Kuroda
#4 Ippudo
#5 Tokyo Tokyo Ramen

Before heading to somewhere, I drop-by at The Venice Grand Canal Mall to eat. And I noticed a poster hanging around the mall that there is a newly open ramen house and the poster state the ramen price starts at Php 180.00. 127886

Ramen Kuroda is located at the second floor of Venice Grand Canal Mall. It's not that big but it can accommodate up to 30-50 pax including outside tables. Of course the interior is Japanese and tables are with fix placemat ready. 127884

For Php180.00 I got Kuro Ramen, it is the chef's recommendation. Ramen with special garlic oil and secret tonkatsu broth and it topped with egg and chasu. They have very affordable price for less than Php200.00 you can slurp your favorite ramen.127836

Kuro Ramen - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

Gyoza - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

Well as expected the portion of egg was cut into half and the pork was not that thick. But the home-made noddles and tonkatsu broth were both really good.128055

And good thing, you can ask the server to take out your food when you cannot finished it. They also have nice and comfortable packaging when taking out the ramen. 128515

They also served fast, within 5 minutes my Kuro Ramen was served. And another 5 minutes for the Pork Gyoza. That was fast. 128077🏼

The servers were very accommodating and provided courtesy. 128540

Overall, if you want quality, fast and affordable ramen you can visit Ramen Kuroda branches at Makati, BF Paranaque and Chinatown.

The first time I heard that there would be a ramen shop that will open in venice grandcanal mall, I got really excited.

Here's why

1. If you're looking for authentic ramen but you're on a budget. Ramen Kuroda is definitely for you. It's really affordable. For 200 pesos (180 basic ramen w/o extra chashu + service charge) you'll have a bowl of steaming ramen. Kuro Ramen is their specialty, it's a must try.

2. The broth. It's tonkotsu based broth is mild and not that strong. The chashu was alright, it was cut thinly ofcourse what can you expect for a price like that. It's for everyday lunch. I ate there 4 times a row in a week and I've tried all their ramen and still craving for it.

3. The ambience. Although the shop interior did not impress me at all but I kinda like the simplicity and it's so true in japanese culture. What I like is walking around venice grandcanal before you get there. You kinda have this european feel though you're going to eat in a jap resto. Haha

Overall, this ramen joint is a must try. If you're looking for a ramen fix that is affordable and delicious, this is definitely for you. This might as well can become your comfort food whenever you're stressed out.

This is the Kuro Ramen. Broth was flavorful and the noodles were firm. The best part is, it's only P180! 128516 Chashu was perfect. Next time I'd order the Kuro Chashumen. One slice is 'bitin'. We also ordered gyoza. It was just so-so. Overall, we were really satisfied because of the great tasting ramen and the affordable price. Ventilation is poor though.

Affordable Ramen128077🏻 Taste wise, it was good except for the chashu. It was bland. We ordered the set menu, which consisted of 1 bowl of ramen, a don and fruits. The gyudon was a disappointment. Beef was so rubbery in texture that my friend was struggling to chew it. When we told the server about, she brought the food in the kitchen to have it checked. After a while she returned telling my friend if she wanted something else in the menu in exchange for the rice bowl. She declined saying that she just wanted them to know that the beef was really tough. The funny thing was the server brought back the bowl in the table. My friend was like as if she's going to still eat it. 128556 The place was small. Ventilation is very poor. When we got out we were really perspiring. Service needs a lot of improvement. Maybe not going back anytime soon.
