I am not a Ramen nor food expert but I like this Ramen because its very OISHII and UMAMI taste! This Uma Uma Ramen is one of their Best Sellers along with the Garlic Ramen.

UMA UMA Ramen 127774
Chasiu - Spring Onions - Black Fungus -Spicy Miso - Egg

Price is P360 pesos as far as I remember. Staffs were friendly but serving time is a little bit slow. Would definitely recommend this to all Ramen lovers out there!

Uma Uma @ S Maison

Ramen Ramen Ramen! There's a lot of Ramen restaurants in the Philippines, like for real! Sometimes you could not decide where to go whenever you'll have this ramen urge because you'll get confuse on which is better. But I think as long as you wanted to taste it and it looks decent, why not try every Ramen you could find cause thats where the real battle for the best ramen begins!

Uma uma is a not so old not so new restaurant that opened in S Maison Conrad. The interior is fine, they also serve complimentary hot tea which is a big thumbs up! Well, free is a big deal guys. haha. I ordered their Garlic Ramen (P360) which base/soup has the same color of a regular soy sauce. It also contains an egg, chasiu, beansprouts, and fried shallots. Despite it's color and oily looking soup, I really like it! It tastes soooo garlicking good! The serving is enough to make me feel so full. And so, for the serving and the taste, I can say the price is just right.

All in all, Uma Uma is really worth the try. I would definitely comeback and try the other ramens they have in store.

Cocktails. Ramen. Sunset. Cocktails.

I was too early to fetch the wifey from work so I decided to chill at Uma Uma's Bar and watch the sunset while I'm at it. Couch was cozy, view was majestic, drinks in hand. Perfect! 128525

127864Aphrodisiac127864
A refreshing mix of Lime Juice, Mint, Cucumbers, Tanqueray, and Absinthe to start off my appetite. Was a bit too strong though, but it was still too early so no biggie, I can handle my alcohol.

127836 Garlic Ramen 127836
My default order! 128525 One of the richest bowl of ramen you will ever try in the metro. Umami at it's finest.

127865Forrest Berry Fizz 127865
Had a lot of fun with this one! 128513 Fruity like Sangria. A little bit of a girly drink, but I loved it nonetheless. Go ahead and judge me. I don't care. 9996128514

A hearty bowl of Ramen with a side of the famous Manila Bay Sunset. Pretty hard to beat. 127836+127749=128525128525128525

I am not a Ramen expert but i truly believe in my heart of hearts that Uma Uma is one of the best things that happened in the ramen scene. Why do i say this? Well, their flavors stand out. How? You get to taste a distinct flavor you can find anywhere else (I am referring to their Garlic Ramen).

Today, i am giving in to my dragon lady instincts and ordered the Spicy Chasiu Ramen.

The bowl comprises of chasiu with spicy marinade, chili oil, spring onions, black fungus and egg. Apart from the wonderful mixture of ingredients, i gotta say that the broth is phenomenal. It is rich, slightly spicy and extremely flavorful. Each sip is an assault on your palate (in a good way), i taste the flavor intricacies of the broth. Man, it is really good! The noodles has the right amount of firmness and it absorbs the flavor of richness of the broth which makes the ramen 10x awesome. Oh, let us not forget the fall-off-the-bone tender chasiu....it so tender, it sort of melts in your mouth. And ze egg is perfect too. It is a bowl of perfection.

Uma Uma is way better than the other ramen joints. Each bowl they offer has a unique flavor that no other ramen joint has. Don't get swayed by the big brands, trust me when I say that Uma Uma is something else. Something better.

Can't find my photos. But I owe people some credits128516

I liked the ramen. It's not as rich as I'd like, but it good enough. In between what you can get from Mendokoro and Kuroda.

They allowed us to share our bowls, no nazi here. Friendly service, including the welcoming smile from Japanese chef that went to our table, who kept nodding at us when Jayson J talked to him in Tagalog.

My colleague and I have been craving for ramen despite this hot weather, so we searched for ramen joints around the area before choosing Uma Uma. We were hesitant at first since we've tried this before. But the turning point in our decision was us wanting to try their Aligue ramen.

Apart from the aligue ramen, we also wanted something that had soup, so we settled on ordering their Uma Uma ramen and splitting them for the two of us to share.

127836 Uma Uma Ramen P360
Chasiu, spring Onions, Black Fungus, Spicy Miso, Egg.
I loved a ramen with thick broth. However, I found this ramen to be thicker than normal, and thus saltier. They probably prepared two small bowls individually, resulting to the difference in taste.

🦀 Aligue Ramen P495
The aligue ramen is a dry ramen, with crab fat sauce covering just the surface of the noodles. It is topped with two crab cakes, a small ebi tempura, and an egg. Its size is half of the others, although it is also the most expensive of all. But, after I finished half my share, I realized that the size is just enough for a dish having a strong flavor such as this. The taste of the crab fat was so overwhelming that it was a bit tiring to the tastebuds, considering I just had half of a serving.

I liked how innovative Uma Uma has been in their aligue ramen. It was a great dish, although it might not be for everyone.

Initially available at their Uptown Parade BGC only, so when I got wind that it's now being offered at their S Maison Branch eh takbo na agad ako for Breakfast. 128514

I was literally their first customer when they opened at 10am. Great job to the staff for being quick on their feet when I asked if Aligue Ramen is available this early, they confirmed without hesitation. 128077

Aligue Ramen, like their best-selling Mazesoba, is what they call dry ramen. It's not entirely dry though. There is still soup but albeit a small amount just enough to drench the noodles with their signature umami tonkotsu. Crab Cakes and an Ebi Furai tops this Aligue riddled dish. The Aligue taste is there but I don't think it has enough to actually make your blood pressure shoot up. I was still fine after I finished up the bowl. 128513

Uma Uma has been one of my favorite ramen places because of good food and great service during their first few months. All that has changed now though. The Uma Uma Ramen was too salty and the service was disappointing. We were standing by the door, waiting for a server to approach us but for an awkward minute or so, servers were just walking in front of us like we were in an invisibility cloak. Another incident... When I asked for a fork, the server just reached out from the table beside us and handed it to me, while I was eating ramen. 🤦🏻‍♀️

As we were in the area to attend a bridal fair, my friends and I decided to sate our hunger in one of the restaurants that QC doesn't have... The classy, high-end S Conrad has a number of these restaurants already, with a few more set to open in the future. We ended up at Uma Uma, a Singapore based ramen chain that has ended up in our shores.

Weirdly enough, my two companions did not order ramen. They ordered the chasiu rice with extra chasiu, gyoza and chicken karaage. I was the only one inclined to eat ramen. I was about to order the signature Uma Uma ramen, when I decided to try the Garlic ramen at the last minute. I really should have went ahead and tried the signature ramen. I found the garlic ramen's broth weak and one-dimensional, though the serving was generous. Their gyoza and karaage were just okay for me. Another weird thing was the chasiu rice-- it was really good! We all enjoyed this the most, very flavorful with sweet and salty layers... I wish I ordered it as well!

Service was efficient and everyone was pretty accomodating. Will try the Uma Uma ramen instead next time!

My sister's been wanting to try Uma Uma for a while so when we eventually ended up in SM Mall of Asia for our Sunday errands, she suggested we head over to S Maison at Conrad.

I got a bit curious as to where Uma Uma came from, so I googled it and it comes from Hakata, a district in Fukuoka, Japan. Their ramen is characterized by rich and milky tonkotsu broth with thin and non-curly noodles.

Upon googling, I also found that the name "Uma Uma" is a play on the Japanese word "umai" which means "tasty".

We ordered 3 different kinds of ramen: Uma Uma Ramen, Garlic Ramen and Spicy Chashu Ramen

127836 Uma Uma Ramen - Php 360
I really liked the ramen! It was definitely what the Hakata ramen description said it would be. They topped the ramen with some spicy miso paste but you can ask them not to include it if you're not into spicy food. I tried the broth before mixing in the spicy miso and it was rich and creamy! My sister, A, said it tasted like eggs! 128514 For me, the broth was a winner because it was rich, creamy but it wasn't very salty! Other ramen places I've tried have super rich broth but can eventually become salty and makes me crave for water. Uma Uma prides itself by achieving umami with no MSG!

127836 Spicy Chashu Ramen - Php 390
I only tried the broth for this one from Bernisse C. At first it was alright, but I tried the broth again when she was done eating and it felt like drinking soup with so much chili oil! 128514 They were perspiring while eating their bowl of ramen!! 128541

128055 One-bite Gyoza - Php 140
10 pieces of one-bite gyoza! The gyoza was really small and it really fits into your mouth in just one bite. Their gyoza comes with some spicy chili flakes which you can put in the gyoza sauce. I liked the gyoza but in a way I prefer biting into my gyoza rather than putting the whole thing in my mouth. 128517 Cute idea though.

The service was quite good. They were attentive and kept refilling our water. They don't have service tea though, which is quite disappointing. For quite a medium sized restaurant, they sure had a lot of crew. I think I counted 8 chefs in the kitchen.

They also have a Japanese chef overlooking the service. He was also friendly enough to smile and acknowledge my two sisters attempting to speak in Nihonggo (after practicing with me). 128514

Problem though with the payment as of the moment, their credit card was offline so they can only accept cash payments.

100% MSG-Free pure umami! This is Uma Uma's statement. Many establishments nowadays are diving into the healthier cooking alternatives as health has becoming a big issue for most people. It's a continuous challenge to most chefs and I think it's great that they choose to be a part of the world's initiative to live healthier lives.

I've heard mixed reviews about this place and I've been wanting to try it out for myself. Dad also wanted to try something new so here we are. Finally!!!

There are only six kinds of ramen to choose from: Uma Uma, Mazesoba, Spciy Chasiu, Tonkotsu, Garlic and Tantanmen. For side dishes, gyoza, maki tamago, karaage and yaki chasiu are available.

We ordered the following:
UMA UMA RAMEN [P360] 11088110881108811088
Chasiu • Spring Onions • Black Fungus • Spicy Miso • Egg
I usually look for 3 things when I eat ramen: broth, noodles, and meat. For their uma uma ramen, it got the noodles and meat perfect. Noodles were aldente and meat was very tender and juicy. However, I didn't like the broth that much because it had an overwhelming egg flavor. Although the broth was very creamy and thick that I liked.

SPICY CHASIU RAMEN [P390] 11088110881108811088
Chasiu with spicy marinade • Chili Oil • Spring Onions • Black Fungus • Egg
This had a better broth than the uma uma ramen in my opinion. Even if both ramen had tamago in it, this one didn't have that overwhelming egg flavor. Again, noodles and meat were perfect.

GARLIC RAMEN [P360] 110881108811088
Chasiu • Garlic • Garlic Oil • White Onion • Beansprouts • Fried Shallots • Egg
Same comment for the noodles and meat but the broth was super garlicky for me. Well, it is Garlic Ramen 128514 Maybe garlic flavored dishes are just not for me.

ONE BITE GYOZA [P140] 1108811088110881108811088
It really is just the perfect bite-sized gyoza! It tasted like normal gyoza but I liked how they made it so easy to eat. Sometimes it's a hassle to bite a bit then put down the other half again. So yay! Loved this one.

Service was okay. Water was free but you need to pay for tea unlike other Japanese restaurants. Also, they don't accept credit card at the moment because the machine is not functioning. But overall, it was a good visit. Mendokoro Rameba is still the best I've tried here so far.

The next place we went to was Uma Uma Ramen. 128568 J and I got so intrigued on this place what with all the online shebang in the past. We wanted to see what they did about it now. 128569

We ordered the Uma Uma Ramen (Php 360) and it tasted kinda weird for me. 128569 It wasn't the ramen taste I was expecting. It was on the milky or creamy side. Maybe I'm not used to the natural umami flavoring. I might just be the type who likes seasoning and stuff. 128569 Still we enjoyed the noodles because they were nice and firm. The chasiu was nice and tender and had a nice savory flavor. I liked that you could still bite into it, but it was very soft and light. The egg was really nice too! I don't know what they did but it seems like they soft boiled the egg in water with some sort of salty soy-based sauce. I'm really not sure about it, but it felt like that just cause the egg had a nice sweet-salty taste. I really liked it. It improved on the creamy broth for me. We asked for the spicy level to be kept mild but it still made me cough a but and sweat a bit. I think I just don't have enough tolerance for spicy food. 128569

We also ordered the One Bite Gyoza (Php 140) and I found it just ok. May it was because we just came from the Japanese restaurant next door where I loved the same pork dumpling. I just felt theirs was just regular tasting. As in the whole time I kept on thinking, "I've had better." I'd still go for Osaka Ohsho's or Ramen Yushoken's gyoza. It was a nice pair to the ramen though. 128568

I'd still come back, but probably to share a bowl with J. I wanna try anither flavor next time, and I want to try another side dish. Their Chicken Karaage was actually speaking to me to come back soon, so I look forward to that! 128568

Yet another ramen joint in Manila, Uma Uma sets itself apart from the rest by offering MSG-free tonkotsu ramen (aside from the peculiar name which is one letter away from the local word for, well, fed up!) But taste-wise, it's hard to distinguish the flavor of the broth from other well-known establishments. Perhaps Uma Uma entered the simmering ramen scene in Manila a little too late because by now, most people already have their favorites.

Uma Uma Ramen is one of the very few restaurants in S'Maison that opened as soon as the mall started its operations. I'm only writing this review now but I've actually been here a couple of months ago. Thrice. In one week. 128517

Here are the items I've tried:
🔹One-Bite Gyoza
🔹Tonkotsu Ramen
🔹Garlic Ramen
🔹Chasiu Don

I won't be describing their taste in detail because (1) the other reviews have got that covered and (2) I don't really have the skill and talent to do that. 128514 But seriously, they were all good. What I liked the most was the not-so-thick consistency of their ramen soup base. Oh and the Chasiu Don, loved it!128076

Service was great and consistent. I should know because I went there for 3 days straight at different times - before, during, and after peak/lunch hour. 128517 Orders get served quickly and their servers are very polite.

Mama's 59th Pre-Bday dinner celebration at Uma Uma S''Maison Conrad Hotel Manila.

It's my mom Elaine P birthday staycation at Conrad Hotel last Sept 3, we decided to have dinner at the new mall S'Maison mall which is connected to our hotel so very convenient. There were high end shops and resto so it's now that crowded. Mom loves Japanese so we try Uma Uma. We waited for 10 mins as there were many diners that night.

Finally we got seats after 10mins. Got their best seller Uma Uma Ramen. Made of Chasiu, spring onions, black fungus, spicy miso, and egg for 360 then we got gyoza too which is good combination for their yummy ramen.

Service was fast, the serving was generous, it can feed two people, served hot and broth was good, it's worth the wait, mapapa Uma ka sa sarap127836

Wow lotsa healthy reviews here in looloo for UMA UMA Ramen as MSG-free...which, in our growing health-conscious society, is not bad...

Whew! Finally got to have tried it!!!128512

Though with my recent, spontaneous visit ....my mind was kinda looking for the heavy and flavorful soup base, with tiny bits of fats... which I find as the Real Deal 128522 Yes, I tried out the recommended UMA UMA Ramen, everything was light especially the soup base, it wasn't too salty, less milky and I find it kinda saturated....and kinda seafood tasting...the egg looked dark and a bit dried compared to other ramen shops which looks more
appetizing, orangey and moist...I don't like to be harsh by saying there's better ramen more than this but considering that it is MSG-free makes it more understandable :) So I guess, this would be recommended for the calorie counting peeps :)12852210084128077🏻

But I did love the gesture that they gave extra bowls assuming that it could be for sharing :) also the water refill was attentive as well 12852210084128077🏻

I also crossed over to the Tantanmen Ramen which is a newbie in their menu 12852210084128077🏻 they reallly had a twist in this one since their version was not the usual Tantanmen just drowning in red hot chili soup base, this one had a moist, saucy blend with the ground meat onions... Quite deconstructed, but truly delicious 12852210084128077🏻
Nice to know also that you could adjust/request the level of spicyness for your ramen 128077🏻128077🏻128077🏻

Also tried the Bite Sized Gyoza's, tasty with the kind of chili sauce and well cooked.... although hey, I think I could also gobble a regular sized-gyoza in one bite, hehehe...maybe I would call this Guiltless Gyoza's, hehehe128522128077🏻10084128518

Got the Tamago but was a ho-hum for me .....it literally tasted like compressed scrambled eggs 128522 was looking for the sweety taste and spongy texture of this meal....could the MSG free thing affect its texture?

Overall, wow so this is how msg-free ramen would be, cheers for enjoying good food with a bit of health advocacy 128522128077🏻10084
