Through the years, I have discovered that I am such a fan of Asian food. May it be Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Chinese, Japanese, Thailander or Filipino, I find myself enjoying the dishes placed infront of me given that they are part of these cuisines.

For the Vietnamese cuisine, I have fallen so much in love with Pad Thai and their Spring Rolls. I loved the glass hand-pulled noodles of the Taiwanese. I truly enjoy the butchi, hopia and all sorts of Chinese noodles. Who wouldn't love eating unlimited sushi and sashimi as we learned from the Japanese? And definitely, my Pinoy tastebuds are on top.

After a long while of not eating noodle dishes, my high school friend and I checked out Ramen Nagi located at the 1st level of U.P. Town Center, Ayala Malls, located in Katipunan.

Ramen Nagi has been present at U.P. Town Center for quite a long while now and I have not had the chance to check it out because I have not been craving for some ramen for a long while now so when my friend sort of insisted that we go there, OK. It's both our first time to do that so.

This branch at U.P. Town Center is fairly big. At first look, it's as if it cannot accommodate a lot of guests but I was wrong. The dim lighting was quite OK and the not so cold ventilation, as I think, is how it should really be to avoid the dishes, especially the ramen, from getting cold easily.

We were given the menu and browsed it for a while and decided to order the following items:

- Butao King given the flavors of the chef's recommendation at 390 pesos
- Aurora Shrimp at 370 pesos
- Pork Katsu Roll at 295 pesos

For their ramen, I loved the fact that you can customize the dish for yourself. Get to identify the level of the following: richness of taste, special sauce, garlic, the type of pork, vegetable, and spicynessthat you want in your bowl. You can actually add tamago, extra noodles, seaweed, green onion and cabbage for your own liking.

The signature tonkotsu broth was really yummy. The richness and freshness of the broth can really be addicting. The pork's tender and really tasty too.

The Aurora Shrimp was something I did not expect to like. The crispness and freshness of the shrimps was good with the honey mustard tasting sauce drizzled on top of it.

The Pork Katsu Roll was my least favorite given that it tasted quite oily for me. The crumbs and the fatness of the pork made me feel a little dizzy after.

Overall, my experience was good and I will definitely visit Ramen Nagi again to try some more of their gourmet ramen.

I love ramen a lot. It is my favorite Japanese dish of all-time. Partly because I'm a huge anime fan. So while we were out with the family and the fact we wanted to try something new. We decided to try out this ramen house. We were welcomed in Japanese by the crew which was pretty cool.

Then, the server gave us a sheet of paper where we can fill up how we want our ramen. From the noodle length to the richness of the broth. So for this trip, I tried their Original Butao King Ramen (with an additional Tamago which is egg in Japanese, light on the garlic and soft noodles) that costs P480 in total (P70 for the additional Tamago)

The ramen was served promptly and it was hot. For the first time, I tried eating with chopsticks. However it was a personal struggle since I have a unorthodox writing stance and I couldn't properly grip my hand with it. Despite that, the ramen was really delicious, it was refreshing and was truly worth the value. The service crew were great to attend to our needs and they once again greeted us out in Japanese while we were leaving. Although we came in at a peak time in which a lot of people were having their meals in, overall it was a great experience. I'll be looking forward to come back soon.

I've never had ramen before so i don't know what's good and what's not, but this one is pretty good for me. I ordered one of their lunch meal sets and i loved it. I have yet to try their spicy ramen, but i'm pretty sure i'll visit this place again, so alam kong madami pang next time!

Oh, special mention to their STAR SALAD cos dang it's delicious!!! I'd go back here kahit for this lang! But i liked their ramen naman so i'm coming back for that too 128571

Chasyu Rice Set comes with half butao ramen, chasyu rice, and three sides! Available from Monday to Thursday 11am-6pm 127836127835128077🏻

Nagi is best known for their butao ramen, but the chasyu rice is also worth a try. You can also find it on the back of the menu with the other a la carte items.

The chasyu meat is tender, flavourful, and smokey. I just wish there was more of it on the rice. I think the set would be better if you can choose your ramen because i think it would go better with the red king as it counters the spice of the broth. The meat reminds me a little bit of grilled wagyu tbh.

Love the red king! Made to your liking, spicy, and extremely filling.

They also have lunch sets now. For about 400 bucks you get a half-serving of their butao chasyu ramen; choice of chasyu rice, gyoza, or karaage (fried chicken); and three sides. I had the chasyu rice. The meat was smokey and went well with the fried rice. The butao was oily but still good; i really like the chewy noodles. Sulit.

Staff is nice and its always a good thing that you can customize your ramen bowl.

Masarap. And accessible as it is just at UP Town Center. Parang seatmate sa class na laging andyan pag kailangan mo. Di mo bestfriend pero andyan sa tabi kaya pwede na.

Three stars for the personalised Black King 10084️ but what made the difference is the courtesy of the staff who provided adult-bib for me as I was wearing a white polo lol. Thanks guys for caring haha.

A super flavorful bowl of ramen. I love how you can customize your own order - noodles, spices, flavor, etc. but because it's too flavorful, I suggest that 2 people share 1 ramen and order something else like the shrimp, chicken karaage or gyoza. By the way, I looooove their sprouted beans too!

(Not going to mention technical terms about ramen or Butao because I am not a ramen expert but I would love to be. HAHAHA)

My friends and I ordered three of their four ramens--Butao King, Red King and Black King. (I ordered Red King because I love spicy food, will try Green King next time)
I have tried this ramen house in Hong Kong and I must say, they serve the same bowls of heaven. Of all the delicious broth I tried, Red King was the best. Its balance was superb and was perfect with its fine noodles and lean pork.

However, I am not a fan of this branch because of its service. No one greeted us when we entered like what other ramen places do. They did not let us choose the ingredients of our ramen. (We realized this late because we were so hungry 'cause of schooool, HAHA). Also, we asked for a fork and they were about to give us pork. HAHA

Nevertheless, Ramen Nagi is now on my favorite ramen places. Close to my favorites--Ichiran and Ippudo. :))

The first time we (first for him,  second for me,  first for us)  visited UP Town Center was months ago.  I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of establishments open.   After roaming around the mall and wondering how come there are a lot of people lining up at Rita's.  We decided to grab some dinner.

Picking the restaurant is hard.  UP town has a lot of restaurants.  Vietnamese,  Chinese,  American,  Italian,  Filipino,  Japanese and Fusion.  We checked a couple of menus and settled for Ramen.  

Nagi it is.  First time for him and fifth time for yours truly (I am a regular at the Aura Branch).  I was tempted to order Red King but he is not a fan of spicy food (yes, we are sharing one bowl).   Settled on Butao King and some chicken karaage. 

Butao King comprises of Chasu based broth.  Same mechanics,  you get to personalise your ramen.  Picked pork belly,  normal texture of noodles, heavy on garlic flavor,  zero levels of spice,  normal level for Nagi sauce and heavy on richness. 

I took a spoonful of the broth and made him say "Aaaa".   This was followed by "Wow".   Suffice to say that he liked it.  We liked the chicken karaage.   Who would've thought that fried chicken can taste this good.  I was so used to the fast food version at Tokyo Tokyo.  Nagi's version is fried to perfection,  crunchy on the outside ans moist chicken meat on the inside. 

Nagi never disappoints.  Next on my list is the Green King and the limited edition flavors they offer.

Sooo nagi has new menu items. One of them is this rolled pork katsu...roll. Its basically very thin slices of katsu with bacon (i assume its bacon) and cheese (again, i assume its cheeese) inside; then topped with katsu sauce and japanese mayo.

I didnt like it one bit. It was oily, and the flavours of the sauce and mayo overpowered the pork taste. It was nakakaumay - I wish i tried the gyoza in broth nalang.

Ramen, as usual was good.

For Ramen lovers, Ramen Nagi won't disappointing you cravings. This got to be the best Ramen I've ever tasted (so far hahaha). Ordered Butao king since I'm not a fan of spicy ramen. The broth is flavorful and they've got a good quality of noodles. And I'll give plus points to their service since their staff is attentive to customers' request.

Our kids' favorite ramen place here at UP Town Center. Love that you can customize your ramen from the four base ramen that they have. Favorite is the Red King with lots of freshly crushed garlic. This time, I just stuck with their Butao with lots of garlic!

One thing that they need to do is to offer more choices on their menu -- and that will get them to earn that extra star in my book.
