Yep! Ukokkei still makes one MEAN tantanmen in my book! So rich in flavor, spicy, and even a bit nutty! Noodles were firm and absorbed the flavor and aroma really well. Nothing quite like slurping a bowl of this goodness on a rainy day.

This was THE tantanmen before the ramen explosion. I wonder if they still only serve only up to 30 bowls a day? And was the bald japanese dude manning the kitchen THE infamous ramen nazi?

Ramen was... Uk-Okay! 128077128076 (i just had to put that in)

We were looking for some other ramen option in Makati while walking along pasay road. We frequently pass by this area and knows that there are lot of japanese resto around this area. As we walk along we randomly choose ukokkei since the review in |ooloo are good and there were lots of customer. Positive sign of a good place.128513

I tried out their Tantanmen as suggested by the waiter. Their tantanmen was spicy delicious. The soup was very rich in flavor to a point that it can get a little umay if you are not that of a fan of tantanmen ramen. I also tried out the soup of my friend the Shiyo ramen. For me I liked it better. The light delicious soup was much more of my taste. 128512

Anyway this place is a good ramen option and they pride themselves of incorporating ukokkei (silky fowl) on their soup. Its a chinese black chicken that got a unique flavorful distinct taste that really bring that ump to the soup.9786

Overall I love their ramen but the services and cleanliness of the place needs a lot of improvement. And I hate it when there is an power outlet available beside the table and they wouldn't allow you to use it. Even after begging that I have only 5% battery left. They still gave me a big NO. 128544 would have given 4 star but minus 1 star for that. 1285219996

After a day’s work, me and my friend are looking for a place to eat along Arnaiz Avenue and since we were already tired, we chose what was close to where we were standing and that’s how we chance upon Ukkokei Ramen Ron. Upon entering, we were surprised when we were greeted by a full seating restaurant.

I tried the basic Shiyo Ramen; the broth was creamy, meaty and packed with flavor! 128522127836

P.S
Our dining experience will be much better if the restaurant is more neat and clean and the staff are more welcoming and attentive.

Seriously, this is the best Tantanmen ramen in Manila. I've tried so many others (I'm looking at you Ryu and Go-en) but they all pale in comparison with the original, even better than the one I tried in Tokyo. Ukokkei's version has the perfect blend of nutty and miso flavors that I just can't get enough of. But I must warn you though - it's not for everyone. Some people find it too oily or spicy for their taste. But you'll never know until you give it a try...

This ramen place has been here for quite a while, long before the ramen craze started in the metro, while other ramen places has come and gone, this place has been the long time number 1 ramen resto before the waves of international ramen chains begin invading manila. 

So here i am, just made it in time, i was the last customer and the last order! Whew. Closing at 8:30pm on a saturday night??? Anyway, since its been months or almost a year since i had their tantanmien, i ordered it for tonight with marinated half boiled egg, i like their miso ramen btw. 

Tantanmien tonight was quite disappointing 128529 the soup was too salty, kinda oily and spicyness was bit higher than usual.  And the noodle is a bit dark that resemble much like pancit canton. 128529 the egg was very small, the yolk was a bit hard, i would appreciate if it was served seperately but was clump together within the soup. And i can feel that Msg was really high on the soup tonight, loads of Msg i should say, ive been munching fruits and gulping juices even as of this writing. 128547

Felt bad giving this low review. But it is what it is.  Anyway it was my first time wearing a |ooloo shirt to a resto, 128521 though i should had chosen the other ramen place at salcedo. 9786

What's not to love about Ukokkei?
This authentic Japanese Ramen place is on top of my list to try ever since the ramen hype started in Ph. I must say so far it's still the nest as compared to Ramen Nagi for example and others that I've tried.

Hindi nakakaumay yung pagkalasa niya. I mean compared to Ramen Nagi, sobrang malasa siya to the point na upon finishing the bowl, you're going to crave for something sweet or opposing the taste masyadong matapang. Unlike this one, it's obviouslh seasoned perfectly plus the meat has been cooked well. No need for extra sauce or whatever topping. Eat it as is, and your tummy is solved!

Btw: This specific branch in Makati is very strict. Ramen Nazi as they call it. Strictly no sharing of Order plus if marami kayo, tapos paisa isa kayo dadating sa location, beware they'll give your seats to others first.

Regardless, no wonder people keep coming back cause of the good food. One order ranges around P250 up.

Special order: Fried Dumpling (THE BEST!)

The Tantanmen in Ukokkei is limited to dinner only, so we decided to drop by one Friday night! 128077🏼 They open at 5PM but we got there around 6PM and the place was still quite empty. Good for us!

The serving is pretty big and the ratio between the noodles and soup is spot on. If you love to sip ramen broth in between slurps of noodles, then Ukokkei serving might fill you right up!

Not sure if it's because we're one of the first to order their Tantanmen for the night but the soup does seem a bit oily, but nonetheless, it was still pretty good. I'm good with salty food but I'm not sure why the broth tasted a bit too salty for me as I kept eating. The spiciness of the Tantanmen isn't killer spicy but since I love to eat spicy food, it would have been better with more chili. 128586

Overall, I still liked the Tantanmen here and would recommend people who are looking for their favorite ramen to try the Tantanmen here.

No Tantanmen yet since we visited during lunch. 128532

I ordered Miso Butter Corn with extra Karamiso side to add a bit of kick to the ramen and I enjoyed the ramen and the broth. The chashu pork wasn't quite worth it for me because the slice is a bit thin and it wasn't very flavorful.

I'll come back to try their Tantanmen!

I have heard and read a lot about this place and since then, I wanted to try it here. So when my officemate invited me to eat here for lunch a while ago, I was honestly very excited.

Upon arriving, good thing we were given seats immediately. I wanted to try the Original Tantanmen but they said it is not served until 5 pm. But ironically, they have a new flavor, Cheese Tantanmen, which is just like their bestseller but with cheese in it. So, my officemate and I decided to have and try it instead.

The service was soo slooow, unlike with what I have read that they serve in just a couple of minutes. When the food finally arrived and I started eating, I honestly have had high expectations. Though overall it is still good - both noodles and broth/soup, which were a little hard and creamy respectively - I just thought that it lacked taste because, unlike other ramens which have meats etc, it only has grounds of pork.

After eating, I asked for a refill of water and the waitress came back 10 minutes after. I even asked for more tissues but ended up, she didn't give me any.

Would have given it 4 stars but because of horrible service, I give it a 3. Would love to come back again though so I could try their other food options.

Boyfie brought me here for dinner. Grabe, better than other ramens I have tried. A lot have been saying this is one of the best and authentic ramen in manila. Sobrang malasa I ordered tantanmen and the normal one. Medyo hefty ang pricing but worth it. Hindi nakakaumay and not so oily. Just cooked perfectly.

I have never been a fan of UAAP. I never watched a single game nor had the interest to know the players. (The only one I know is Chris Tiu—because he is one of the owners of Happy Lemon and an endorser of Milo.) So I had low expectations when I watched it for the first time, LIVE. To my surprise, I enjoyed it. It was fun to watch a game surrounded by game enthusiasts. They cheer and utter “awww” in unison. It was a very interesting experience. But the trip back home was pretty horrific. It was traffic! And my generous sponsor, W was starting to get hungry. And he turns into a grumpy rabbit when deprived of his carrot.

We decided to make a quick stop in Makati so that we get to have dinner and W suggested Ukokkei Ramen Ron. I have never been there so I was game.

When we arrived, only a few diners were there so service was pretty quick. W and W2 knew what to order and went with the Ukokkei Miso Chasu (PHP380 for regular and PHP560 for big serving). I ordered the Ukokkei Shoyu Chasu (PHP380) and Gyoza (PHP120).

Our ramen were served in less than 15 minutes.

My ramen was slightly oily and a bit weak on the taste. I guess I got used to the strong flavors of Ramen Nagi and Kichitora. It was refreshing though to have ramen again with a lighter taste. The noodles were not as firm as I wanted it to be but it was pretty good. The chasu was soft and slightly sweet (which I love!).

W and W2’s miso chasu TASTED SO MUCH BETTER! I should have ordered the same thing. I got scared with the color as it looked like it was spicy but it wasn’t at all. It had a stronger taste though not necessarily salty. I loved it more than what I ordered. :(

The gyoza on the other hand was great too! The meat was flavorful. I even ate it without any dipping sauce. Yum yum yum!

However, since it’s in Makati, I think it will be a while before I visit it again. Probably when I’m done exploring Legaspi village.

I finally found myself recently in Ukkokei Ramen Ron along Pasay Road, to try out the ever famous Tantanmen Ramen.
My order came after about 5-10 minutes. A large bowl of steaming hot goodness that smelled intoxicating.

Spicy, creamy and was absolutely delicious! In fact, it’s so packed with flavor. I heard that it takes several hours to simmer the broth of the Tantanmen just to get it to taste like that. I tried to decipher what’s in it and came up with the following ingredients: Japanese chili oil, ground sesame seeds, ground pork and onions all mixed in tonkotsu broth.

I don’t know what makes the broth so creamy but it’s just heavenly I swear. Spicy pork noodle goodness in a bowl!

What else can you ask for? 128527

Ordered their Tantanmen (P380) and it was sooo good! The broth was really flavorful and the noodles were cooked just right. It's a bit spicy too which adds a depth of flavor to the ramen dish. I really don't like spicy food and it's also bad for me since I have hyperacidity, but I really enjoyed this! We ordered gyoza and tamago too. So good!! Very authentic

Their Lunch Set is super sulit. Although Miso Butter Corn isn't included in their set you can still opt for the regular Miso Ramen lunch set then just add the Butter and Corn separately. Yum!

I will never get tired of this place, and ramen of course. This is one of the best ramen places I've tried so far. Been here several times already and I still am awed on how they manage to give customers that legit ramen taste!

My favorite is their Curry Tantamen. I heard the broth has to be prepared over night which makes it very rich and flavorful. Plus, unlike Ramen Nagi, they allow take aways!

Always a sucker for ramen. The noodles they used were a little too heavy for me though. Loved their gyoza.
