127836BLACK CURRY KING127836
Basically, Ramen Nagi's signature Black King laced with Curry Powder and spices. With Soup so thick and spicy you might want another serving of noodles (or Rice). 128513128293

Available until December 15, 2017

Butao King for both mine and the husband.
Mom got her chicken Karaage and Japanese rice.
It's been a year now since I had my last Nagi.
I missed this one but I surely cannot finish a bowl, sayang foe the No take out policy. Nakakabusog talaga.
Our niece enjoyed her rice and Ramen soup.

‼️LIMITED KING‼️
127875Halloween King127875

It's a little funny though that they offer their Halloween Special after Halloween was over. 128514

This is kinda like their Vegetarian version of Ramen, Pumpkin, Cabbages, and lots of Carrots (I mean lots! 128514) but still with Pork Stock so not really fit for Vegetarians.

As usual, I picked Chef's Recommendation for the new limited ramen but found it a bit lacking in flavor so I tried the wifey's which had "Very Rich" checked in the order sheet. It tasted a lot better. So remember to check "Very Rich" because if I'm not mistaken, the sheer volume of the veggies in the bowl affects the overall taste. It somehow dilutes the flavor with their water content.

At least, all those veggies might counter the salt and fat content of the usual ramen bowl. 128513

‼️LIMITED KING‼️
127836Cheesy Tomato King127836
(|Php 470++)

Ramen Nagi's newest Limited Edition Ramen. Tonkotsu with the essence of Tomato topped with a torched cheddar cheese ball containing what I can only describe to be a reduced spaghetti sauce like mix of ground pork and tomato sauce with (pork floss? I saw small strands that kinda looked like pork floss or is it Powdered Meat?🤔). The "Tomato Ball" was mildly spicy so even if you tick No Spicy in the order sheet, there will be a level of spiciness in the bowl.

There are so many things going on in the flavor department that it can be pretty hard to describe. One time it will taste like pizza or pasta then on the other side it's like Paella. At one point I even thought it tasted a bit like Alba's French Onion Soup. 128514 ANO DAW?! Medyo magulo na. 9996128513

The cheesy-ness reminds me of the Manila King Cheesy Caldereta. Although the cheese might be overpowered by the very savory spicy tomato ball, you'll notice a more creamy soup than the usual. The soup really sticks to the noodles.

|Cheesy Tomato will be available from Oct. 16 until Oct. 31, 2017.

This is my favorite ramen place to date! I will fight to the tooth to stand up for it lol 128514!
If you think that pesto and cheese on ramen is weird, you are so so mistaken my readers. It is DIVINE! the only soup i like equally is my good friend's home cooked shabu shabu soup thats been boiled as much as a ramen soup would've traditionally been! Don't fret, they have other choices if that combination is just not your thing. The squid ink variety is also very popular, apart from the traditional mixes they have on their menu.
TIP: If you cant get enough of soup, have them serve you your order the thick way. It is so thick, i sip on it and ask for a cup of hot water to thin it down! This way you don't need to order extra soup.
They serve it in a bowl and can actually be good for two to share, especially if you have side orders, like gyoza. It is definitely filling, more than what one average sized person needs to fill up!
The place is a little cramp, but they have since renovated (MOA), considering the volume of their customers.
It is not cheap, but it is worth it! So if you haven't tried it yet, budget up, bring a friend to share it with! I have advised a couple of friends so they can compare it to what they think is "masarap na ramen" and I have yet to hear anyone get back to me and say anything different!
Php400-600.

‼️LIMITED KING‼️
127836Silver King (Php 490++)
Butao base, Sardine Oil, Dried Fish Powder, Nori, white onions, and Pork Shoulder.

Honestly, it tastes more like "dilis", but in a good way. Not too salty as it looks and as I imagined it to be. Maybe because I went for the Chef's recommendation like I always do when a new Limited King is out.

(Note: It is always a good idea to go for a Chef's Recommendation when you are not too sure what to expect. 🌶Be aware though, that the chef usually adds a spicy level of 2, so be sure to indicate if you want it with spice or not🌶)

Noodles go really well with it but I prefer rice, soooo yeah I dumped a whole bowl into it after finishing off the noodles.9996128514127834

Instant Risotto! Perfect! 128522128076

Another unique creation from Ramen Nagi Manila. Great to try but not something I would be going out of my way for to satisfy a craving.

Silver King will be available from October 1, 2017 until October 15, 2017 only. After which, a new Limited King in the form of Cheesy Tomato King will be introduced.

Tip: As of this writing, Ramen Nagi Manila's Mall of Asia branch still offers the Oyster King, sharing the Limited King title with this month's Silver King.

127836Oyster King127836
Oyster Ball with Deep Fried Oyster in Rich Oyster Sauce. Oysterrific!!! Could anything be more Oyster than that?

So rich that I have to warn you that it can get cloying midway. And beyond that it can get very salty.

But remember, Oysters contain a lot of Zinc which is good for your body and can actually trigger sexual drive because if you didn't know yet. Oysters are natural aphrodisiacs. So... #alamnathis 9996128513

127836Cheesy Caldereta Ramen - Php 440 (Chef Reco)
Right off the bat i would say that this has got to be my least favorite among the 3 although this was the one I was eagerly anticipating. It has the Caldereta taste pero medyo kapos. The Butao base overpowers it making the Caldereta flavor just a hint. There will be times that you will lose that Caldereta essence and the bowl will become saltier as you get to middle and then dead sea towards the end (I didn't get to finish mine 128531)

The vegetables kinda reminded me of their Mexican King. This one tasted a wee bit similar.128513

The cheese makes the soup suuuper creamy (check my IG for the vid 128513📽127836). It really sticks to the noodles which was perfect!

Again, they used what seems to be Lechon Kawali or Bagnet. So crunchy and sinful. Ang sarap! But it leaves me wondering; What if they used Beef with Fat instead? I can only imagine. 128525

Overall I would say Not Bad, but not as great as the first two. Good to try since it will run for a limited time only.

127836Bicol Express Ramen127836
Chili Lovers, don't even hesitate. Yung mga mahilig pumapak ng sili dyan! Sugoood naaa! Oo isa ka na dun Sandy P 128514 Til July 20 lang ito

Automatically, the bowl is rated as 5 Spicy. That is until you mix in all that chili on top then you get hell 128293128514 (I assume). Ok na ko sa 5 spicy kaya I opted to removed all the chili on top 9996128517. We even made a separate bowl and mixed in 3 parts Butao and 1 part BicolEx enough to numb it down so the wifey can enjoy as well.

It's like eating a soupy version of BicolEx with "Gata" and all. There is even a hint of "Bagoong" going on as I saw traces of tiny shrimp towards the bottom. Your mind will be like: why are there noodles in my BicolEx?🤔 You might even end up ordering extra rice for the leftover soup. 128522

I forgot to ask what the pork was though, I only assumed it to be their take on Bagnet as it was crunchy up to the skin.

Bilib na talaga ako sa Butao Base nila. 128525 so far both Manila Kings have been quite similar in taste profile being both with Coconut Milk and Bagoong, the next one is quite different though and I am excited 128513

Up next: Kaldereta Ramen

Availlable from July 1-10 only 128561

Unexpectedly good! I am no fan of Bagoong, however, this one didn't have an in your face intense Bagoong Flavor. Walang lansa whatsoever. But one sip and you'll know it has bagoong alright 128513. It is also accompanied by a dollop of Coconut Milk that adds flavor and texture. I wonder if they allow for extra serving of coconut milk 🤔 masarap siya eh.

And their take on Lechon Kawali.. Maaaan! Super tender with Crunchy Skin still!!!

Now I am hyped with the other two upcoming Filipino Kings 128525

If you love crabs then stop what you are doing and head over to the nearest Ramen Nagi. THIS IS NOT A DRILL 128514

🦀CRAB KING🦀
Deep fried softshell crab resting on top of a bed of Nori 128525 Quite clever to keep the crunchy crab from sinking to the depths of it's own essence. But, after a few moments of gorging at this immensely flavorful bowl, the inevitable is going to happen. The softshell crab will end up soaked in it's juices 128514 Still partly crunchy but now with a more intense crabby taste! I would advise to finish this bowl quickly as it can get quite salty and the umay factor might kick in prematurely. I tried to balance it off by dunking a bowl of plain rice. PANALO! 128525

Craving satisfied.

They actually moved to a new location. Still south but on the other side.

Their store is a lot bigger. Thank goodness because sometimes I would dine outside because their store could only fit about 20 people?

Now they have much more seating areas ( indoor)

Service was pretty quick and I went for their butao king ( original ), without thinking twice. It simply is the best out there.

Super yum! It never gets old! I really love the flavor of the broth and the tenderness and succulent pork shoulder that came along with it.

Will definitely be back for more !

I actually love trying out japanese restaurants/ramen houses. The authentic savory taste of its broth keeps me on craving for ramen.

For ramen nagi, taste was good. Service was excellent, accommodating staffs and very fast food seving. We odered butao king which is their best seller, flavorful broth, the pork belly is so rich in taste and tender.The place was not that very attractive compared to their other braches which i saw on the net. Their space was too narrow. Overall food experience was ok.

127836 BLACK GARLIC KING 127836

☑️ Chef Recommendation for the Settings

I don't know why they called it Black Garlic King. Aside from the toasted Garlic sprinkled on top, I didn't get to sample even a hint of garlic on the soup. Had to crush some more on the side to get my garlic kick. 128532

I also asked for Cold Tea but they gave me Cold Water instead. 128532

Not too happy with this visit. Probably a fluke since I was the first customer at 10am.

Ramen Nagi's Chashu Rice was just okay. The rice, mixed in special sauce tasted good but the roasted pork was bland. The wasabi mayo was overpowering. 128547

Easily one of my top choices in Ramen. 128525

Butao just goes really well with the truffle flavor. Not much to customize on this one since the veggies are defaulted to Cabbage and shoulder part for the meat, which is understandable since truffle is a delicate flavor, Onions and Pork Belly might taint the overall profile of the soup. Just go for super rich everything to really enjoy the bowl. Real Truffle slices also give you the complete Truffle experience which, unfortunately, makes the bowl waaay more expensive at P700++ per bowl.. ... ...wait... did they just change the price to P590?! I didn't notice it during the past visits since I don't browse the menu anymore. That's a big slash from the original price. I wonder if it's the same in the other branches.. I'll have to check.. Soon.. 9996128514

Nagoya King!

Level 10 Spicy Ramen. You can really see lots of chili peppers and it's seeds on top of the ground pork. I had to take off some of it 128514.

Spicy lovers will love this specially this rainy season.

Pro-Tip: For this particular limited king, Ramen Nagi is offering free additional Soup to help ease the spiciness of the bowl. 128513

This restaurant is probably already my family's go-to place whenever we are craving for some ramen. Specially my son. Their noodles is perfect! And the broth? Ugh! It's D.I.V.I.N.E!

This week they made a ramen version of Thailand's famous soup, Tom Yum. Oh man, the moment I tasted the broth, I was lost for words. Yes, it is that YUMMY! Well, for me at least. :)

Thank you Ramen Nagi for always making my tummy happy and satisfied! :)

Whenever I am at MOA I don't think twice on where to eat. Ramen Nagi is really the place to be! I am in love with their Butao King-- just the original one!

I split a bowl with my friend for dinner and had some gyoza too!

Service is always great! 128588🏻128588🏻128588🏻 many thanks!
