Aside from their deadly super chashu ramen, you should try their chahan, gyoza, and aji tamago! I love all! Best of the best of the bestestest!

Had to deduct 1 star cos they didn't allow us to take out our barely touched shoyu maze soba (not so yummy). I get the no take out rule for ramen, but for DRY noodles (no broth/it's like "pancit").. maybe they should.

If you're south of the Metro, in Alabang to be specific, one of the most sought after ramen shops is Yushoken. Since it's the start of the rainy season it's only fitting to go back to one of the best ramen places in the metro for a filling bowl.

This night we wolfed down on the usual - Karai Tokusen, Shoyu, and Karaage.

All 3 were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Despite being a very busy Saturday night the chefs here at Yushoken sure know their craft and it consistently shows.

The only qualm I had this time was the noodles being served before the side. It was a small deviation that didn't spoil the experience but it's one of those things that one should be conscious of when it's a busy time slot.

And I really miss these buddies of mine. Buddies talaga?!?!? 128517 But seriously, I miss the ramen here especially their Tantanmen. It's just so freaking GREAT! Nothing really compares to this. Kahit pawis na ako and sinisipon and all, it was worth it! Yeah...that didn't sound appetizing but the ramen here is I guarantee you, will make you forget other ramen places in the land. 128077127836128523

I was having a terrible headache from the heat and the traffic from QC-Laguna and back to QC so we decided to stop by and eat dinner at Molito. Of course we chose Ramen Yushoken! 127858

The ramen gods have answered my prayer and the staff suggested I try their off-menu Seafood Shoyu Ramen. It's divine! All my friends are jealous haha. The soup is rich and savory and seafoody. You get a generous helping of meat and noodles too. Will definitely recommend this.

Now I know why its in the top 3 spot in spot.ph. Deserving naman talaga. First time ko i try ang tantanmen. The broth is creamier than any ramen's I've tried, and it actually reminded me of laksa. They have good serving and given a better situation (ie no braces), I would have finished my bowl.
Tbh, sa katagal tagal ko na kumain ng ramen, ngayon ko lang in internalize ang noodles dahil sa insistence ni Honeybabes at OMG, may lasa sya! It's a little starchy na very slightly na maalat pero very well-paired sa broth.

Sarap dito, brah!

I won't even count how many times I've reviewed yushoken 128513but I ordered something totally different the last time I went so it deserves a new review!
A little back story, my balikbayan friend was in town but our schedules wouldn't match. Then one day when I was just lazing around in bed I saw on fb that he checked in at yushoken! 5 mins ago! So I messaged him right away and said I'll be there in 15mins! Long story short, thanks fb for letting people know where other people are haha!
I've already had my lunch when I got there so I kept on declining their offers for me to order. AND THEN, the ebi tonkotsu came! It was actually his mom's order and it smelled so good! Grrrr so I gave in and ordered my own bowl! Apparently, they only serve 20 bowls a day so just make sure to ask your server first. It also takes a bit longer to prepare.
When it arrived ugh the aromas was amazing! The broth was lighter than the other ramen choices. It was also served with a generous amount of scallops, kani and squid. And also the huge ebi on top.
A must try for seafood lovers! Will definitely have this again 🦐🦑🦀🥘127836

Location - it's in Molito, and there's no traffic at all to this place.

Interiors - tables and bar are available. We had a table because it was a peak hour so we got to sit where we can but you can try the bar type for a full Japanese experience.

Staff - the members of the crew are very accommodating and patient despite the rush / peak hour. (We visited on a Saturday for lunch). They even allow you to 'pre-order' your food if you are waiting for tables.

Menu - the menu is very quirky. Read it from the first lettwr to the last period and you will laugh your heart out.

Food - the food is awesome! I had the tantan-men, a spicy ramen with ground pork. It's not as spicy as I expected it to be but there is chili sauce available on the table. My boyfriend ordered Shoyu. It has a very juicy slab of meat. Yummmm. No wonder it lands 3rd on spot.ph.

A friend invited me to stay at the hotel for four days for work purposes. I was excited being in Alabang since I have a long list of restos I want to try and Yushoken was on eof them. We wete destined to eat here coz it's been raining the whole day. Bed weather = Ramen for dinner.

The palce was packed when we arrived and was third on the line. We got a table after an hour of waiting. While deciding which ramen to order, the power suddenly went ount and the server told us that they only served gyoza while the power was out. I was anxious of not able to eat here but luckily the power went back after 10 minutes of waiting and ordered our food right away.

The placemat/menu was cool. Everything you need to know about ramen was written on it and was a big help on which ramen to order. Thanks to Looloo and my fellow looloo-ers for recommending Super Chasu which was not included on the menu.

🔹 Super Chashu + Aji Tamago

I loved the thick and flavorful soup/broth and the al dente noodles on it. The grilled chashu was cooked to perfection - tender and melts on your mouth. Fresg chili was put on the side and you are free to remove if you don't prefer spicy ramen. The serving was big but still I was able to finish it. Tamago was really great too!

🔹 Shio and Shoyo Ramen

My friends had it they loved it. I liked the Shoyo better because the bolder and more flavorful than Shio.

🔹 Gyoza

Yushoken/Mendokoro makes the best gyoza in town. It soft and savory. We had an order of it and it was the first plate to arrive. We finished it less than a minute and decided to order another one. One of us realized that we won't be able to finish our Ramen if we had another plate of gyoza. 128556

In terms of the place and interiors, I like the Mendokoro Ramenba better. It's simple and spot on.

Service was great but the waiting time was really bad but it's worth it. 🙂

I hope just like Ippudo, you could choose your how the noodles were prepared based on your preference. 128517

I really love this place and did not see any reason to regret except probably that we waited for a few minutes. But of course, that was completely fine though hehe

Anyway, Im not really a fan of ramen but only until i tried this! We ordered the ramen where the noodles at the soup are separate. Very delicious! 127858127861 Their extra pork added more weight and the chicken karage was fine too!

Sarap!

The gyoza, karaage and chahan were all very good. The miso ramen was average. I find the noodles too thick, the soup was thick and ok but little soup. Price was fair. Lots of parking space.

Ironic that i live near this place and have eaten here countless of times but never posted a review! 128517 Well most of my visits were during my pre-Looloo era anyway haha.

So here it goes. Yushoken, i'd have to say, is probably my favorite gourmet ramen place in Manila. That awesome P200++ ramen in BF Homes that i love too is another topic haha. And yes, there's added sentimentality to it being in the South and it being Alabang's original contribution to the ramen scene. The same way that for a lot of people, nothing beats your mama's cooking. For me, i'll always compare every new ramen place in Manila to my favorite ramen at my homebase.

Thick and flavorful broth whether shoyu, miso, or tantanmen. Al dente noodles, seared chashu slices with grill marks, that authentic ramen bar feel... i can't ask for much else.

Must tries are the off menu items:
- Super chashu - its their shoyu ramen with a thick slab of grilled chashu and a slightly spicy kick
- Ebi tonkotsu - tonkotsu broth with shrimp oil and topped with seafood. Something different and unexpected, but really good.

The non-ramen stuff they got is good as well. Chahan is addictive. Hiyashi chuka for something cold, fresh, and filling. Or the Karai Tokusei Tsukemen for something spicy! 128076

I like how they trace their lineage to the ramen god in Japan, with actual "descendants" coming in to train and check on the quality. Great portions and superb flavor and a measure of authenticity mixed with that down home feel. This is my ramen "home court".

I'm back!!! Second time visiting the place in a month! We went here after our weekend getaway. Before we left Real, Quezon at around 11am, we've already decided that we will have our late lunch here at Yushoken.

Even if it was getting really late, my friends and I never had the idea of ditching the original plan to eat somewhere along the way. We were starving and we just thought of the ramen we were about to eat while driving.

We arrived the restaurant at around 4pm. Arranging tables for 9 people wasn't easy for the staff, but they made it after a few minutes. We all ordered different items from the menu. I got the super chashu (off-menu item). It never came to me to ask for the price, since there's no doubt that I wanted to try this, and I knew that the price wouldn't be a problem.

Orders started coming. My order was the last to come out from the Kitchen. It was served in the same size of bowl as the other ramen available, but there one obvious difference: the size of the chashu. It really was SUPER. The ramen had saltier broth than the shio, but also very rich. It had chili peppers, but I removed them since I don't like my ramen to be spicy. Despite this, I was still able to get the hint of spice in my ramen, which I still enjoyed.

Serving was huge. It was very heavy. I had a hard time finishing the chashu! And I usually finish the soup, but not this time.

Finally, it's time for the bill. To my surprise, the price of the super chashu is P490. It's a bit pricey for me. But for the size of that chashu, I think I can let it go.

Thanks Ruth S for the heads up! Finally got to try this off-menu item you mentioned. 128522127836

This place serves my new favorite ramen!

We went here on last minute decision. I wasn't sure what I wanted to eat, and while I was browsing my list of to-try restaurants, this was the first to really catch my attention. It didn't seem like the perfect timing to have ramen since it was really hot the day before my visit, but I just wanted to have it when I saw photos of it. Then, on our way to the restaurant, it rained. It was destined for me to have ramen on a ramen weather 128514

When we arrived the restaurant at around 12nn, the place was packed. Luckily, there was a vacant table, and we were assisted to our seats. There were also available seats at the bar area.

The restaurant isn't that big. It has around 7-9 tables (for 4 people each table) and around 6 individuals at the bar area.

The menu was the placemat already laid down on the table. We ordered the shio tonkotsu ramen P350, the karai tokusei tsukemen P460, the karai maze soba P310 and the karaage P230.

⛩ Shio Tonkotsu Ramen - I loved this! It had the rich, flavorful broth that I've never tasted from any of the ramen I've tried before. The chasu was also delicious. Although it was a bit thick, it was so tender. Also, when the dish was served to me I thought the serving was small. But as I was slurping through it, I felt like the bowl had a secret compartment or something that it's as if the ramen was bottomless. It was heavy.

⛩ Karai Tokusei Tsukemen - my sister ordered this one because it was described as a spicy dish. However, she was disappointed that it wasn't spicy at all. I tried it and I was able to handle it (and I have a weak tongue when it comes to spicy food). But nevertheless, it wasn't bad.

⛩ Karai Maze Soba - my boyfriend had this. It was like a salad but with noodles in it. Serving was huge! Really huge! Taste was okay as well. It wasn't as bland as it looks. But my bf liked it better when he added chili oil in it. (It became too spicy for me!)

⛩ Karaage - 5 pieces of deep fried chicken karaage. This was incredibly oily. Straight from the fryer. I had to use a number of paper towels to drain the excess oil (and this was hard to do). Taste-wise, it's not what I expected. It's just chicken. No twist. Nothing memorable. Not even the good chicken. It was meh.

Service was okay. I can say there were enough servers for the whole place such that no table will be neglected or overseen. Food was ready in around 10-15minutes.

Oh, and while you're waiting for your food, there are fun facts and reminders on the right side of the menu you might want to read. A particular one that I read was that if you had to take photos, make it quick, as the ramen tastes best while still hot. (Took a photo of it).

Overall, I'll repeat my opening statement: this is now my favorite ramen joint. (Because of the shio ramen alone) And this is considering I still haven't tried their best seller (an item from the secret menu: the super chasu). It's so sad that I only learned about it after my visit, because since this is a last minute thing, I didn't have time to read (or even ask the server about it 128531) I WILL COME BACK FOR YOU, SUPER CHASU! 127836

(I will leave an open mind for those who disagree with me on this. Any suggestions on other delicious ramen joints?)

Ruth S Pupunta tayo diba? 128518
