I think this is one of the hidden gems of Boracay, and quite literally, as it's tucked inside the main road close to Astoria.
My favorite include the takoyaki (succulent octopus cubes inside) and crunchy shrimp maki. Notable as well is the yakisoba with a generous helping of baby shrimps and nori powder.
A friend said a good number of Boracay locals and Manila visitors are frequent guests of this place, and I'm not surprised, since I'm already planning a second trip tomorrow.

To give Shibaya a second chance is one of the best decision I made with this latest trip to Boracay.
I frequent Boracay (for work reasons) traveling alone, and eating alone is no stranger to me. This night, the strong and cool breeze of Habagat conspired with my feet and brought me to this place again.
The place is not packed this time with Japanese tourist eating Japanese food. Serene and perfect for avoiding the hustle and bustle of the chaotic D'Mall.
Browsing through the menu, I was in a dilemma whether to order a safe and familiar Katsudun, or a risky Chasu Ramen. I went for the latter to comfort myself in the cold sea breeze blowing hard. Chasu Ramen with Shioyu soup and asked the waitress to make it spicy.
My order arrived and delivered! It was not a disappointment. A generous serving of Chasu. Ramen bars in Metro Manila cannot compete with Shibaya's. I was in chasu heaven. The noodles is just right, and the soup is spicy to perfection. I finished the whole bowl!
This is probably the best Php 220.00 I spent here in the island.
I was disappointed with my first visit to Shibaya. I ordered their pork curry rice the last time and it was not good at all. Not even close to Yabu's or Coco Curry's. But with this Chasu Ramen, I am definitely coming back.

Located along a quiet alley in station one, this japanese restaurant offers authentic Japanese cuisine at a very affordable price. Shibaya is located a few steps away from Real Coffee.
My food-trip buddy and I tried their Fish Katsu set (180php) and Special Okonomiyaki (180php), and were really impressed. Both dishes were flavorful and were served in generous amounts. You must try this restaurant on your next Boracay visit
