A week after we ate here, we went back because I wanted to get myself the Tantanmen again. While Mendokoro is a hop away from Mile Long, I was expecting a lunch menu with my ramen which in my mind would make it more sulit, and that I would probably not have to wait for a table here, as this place is really under the radar.

Why was I surprised that the Tantanmen is only available in the evenings? Hay. It didn't say on the menu on our last visit. Bummer. To think I was salivating on the drive to Amorsolo just thinking about it. To be fair our waitress asked the kitchen if they could serve it to me.

I reluctantly settled for a Noukou lunch set. It came with a salad and a few other appetizers. Pwede na din for the add ons. The most sulit ramen lunch is still Ukokkei with the rice meal included.

Yokohama ramen is considered as a rich, meaty ramen. Their Nokou is very similar to Kitchitora's. I am getting weirded out by this place hahaha. First, the Tantanmen is like Mendokoro's, now this one. It's all good though as I'm glad it tastes the way I want it to. The red dust on top of the ramen is the table side chili powder I sprinkled.

The H ordered the tonkotsu set made with pork broth. He enjoyed his bowl, but comparing our two orders we both preferred mine.

We tried the gyoza, but since I don't like gyoza that much I just found it ok. Pretty cheap though. Unfortunately the lady didn't ask how many we wanted and served us a full order, sayang it was too much for us. I only realized this when we saw our bill, expecting to pay just 100 for it. Their tamago needs less cooking time. It looks the same as with my last visit.

They also didn't give us coffee jelly with our set! I only realized it now looking at the photos from Marc David M's orders.

They have a history of their ramen shop on their menu. Sorry, I forgot what was on it. I remember it saying that their chefs are well trained in the Japanese way of making ramen. Their noodles are made in-house and you can see their noodle cutter thru the glass window by the door.

I'd been longing to try this strip of restos along the creek, but always felt lazy to go there on my own. So when Christina R and I saw this when we were looking for a parking spot, I was actually secretly hoping we'd end up there for our food crawl. And we did 9786

I had the Noukou ramen, which is one of their bestsellers and I found it quite nice. Now that I've tried a not-ok bowl, knowing that this bowl didn't jar my tastebuds means that it's quite good. A pity I was already full from Little Tokyo, or I'd have finished off the whole bowl.

Service was actually good too. The lone waitress kept refilling our glasses and was very attentive. Even when more people came and left while we were there, we didn't feel neglected.

A nice place to hang out and catch up, not a lot of people to disturb and great food to boot! I hope to go back for the really cheap gyoza and chashu 128523

Mile Long is one of those forgotten spots in Makati that is dominated heavily by Japanese establishments. Remember Louie's THX? While majority of the diners are Japanese, many Pinoys come from all over to partake in authentic Nippon cuisine.

We parked along Mile Long to have dinner in Little Tokyo. Walking towards our destination we saw Yokohama and kept a mental note that if we couldn't find a seat in LT we should try this place. This area is where the original Sanggo used to be.

Two hours later we found ourselves here upon the recommendation of Marc. And boy it did not disappoint.

I got their Tantanmen and let me just say it was very, very close to Yushoken/Mendokoro, my favorite ramen places. That rich flavor was definitely there. Has less beef than Y/M though and almost at the same price as Y at 370 for a whole bowl. You can ask for more garlic and other condiments free of charge.

Yokohama does offer a lunch menu with free appetizers, half bowls for orders before 7PM, and complimentary brewed iced or hot tea. What's sulit here are the other food they offer - 3 pcs of chashu for 60 pesos, 4 pcs of gyoza for 100, 40-peso tamago. I would love to come back to try these.

Service was great. The lone waitress at 930PM refilled our glasses periodically. When she placed our bowls she even rotated it to a specific angle for us.

It says on their menu that their Filipino chefs are trained in Japan.

Hola I'm back! It's bern a long time since I wrote a review! And what resto or cuisine would bring me back to looloo again? You guessed it right! A ramen joint!

I learned about this resto from my ever reliable looloo friends, #teamkaladkarins. I feel bad when I'm not able to join them on their eatups and rave about food with them, but whenever they update us on our fb group chat, as if it's like I was with them. They went there on a Thursday,so I was tugging the girlfriend to Makati by Sunday. Coz it's ramen. No one gets in the way when I want ramen.

Once we got there, we were greeted by the wait staff with their shouts of "Shimasen!!!" I'm used to hearing Shimasen whenever I got to Japanese restos but I swear to God, theirs were kinda close to hysterical. The place was not full when we arrived during lunch time but soon diners start pouring in. What's noticeable was, everyone was Japanese, except us. It must be a good sign that their food was authentic.

So on with the food:

Chicken Karaage set - the girlfriend got this and the first thing you'll notice is that the serving is huge. All meals came with assorted appetizers (even the ramen) which gave the dish a variety. Ince you take a bite of the chicken, you'll know it's different. It doesn't have the usual crisp that we usually get from a karaage, but the taste and tenderness make up for it. You'll be suprised with how tender this is. And the flavor took it away. Kebs na if it's not crispy, coz it's really delish and perfect with the Japanese mayo that comes with it.

Noukou Ramen - At first, I was having 2nd thoughts on ordering this because according to Christina R, the Tantanmen was really good. But the server said that the Noukou ramen is the bestseller and since it's our first time, we listened to her. I should have listened to Christina R though. Don't get me wrong, it's not that it tasted awful, but I find the broth kinda starchy. I don't know if they did put starch to make it more thick, but its texture's different compared to other Tonkotsu-based ramen that I've had. It was okay all in all, the appetizers that came with it added variety too, but I don't think I'd order this again when we go back.

Gyoza - we rarely order Gyoza, but when we noticed that every table had gyoza, we gave it a go. IMO, this is one of the best gyozas I ever tasted. The meat was just enough which makes it not cloying, and it's so tasty you can even eat it without the soy sauce. It's juicy too! And here's another kicker, it's just 100 bucks for 4 pcs. IKR? It's a steal!

I would definitely go back here and try their Tantanmen and have another taste of their gyoza! I wouldn't mind being shouted at again with "SHIMASEN!!!!" just to have those glorious gyoza.

It was suppose to be a food crawl however the plan did not go well cause there was no more space inside little tokyo.

The group was really longing for ramen so why not?
128204Noukou ramen
Mushrooms, bamboos shoots, pork slice, onion greens. The chicken base soup was good. A little oily, i liked the taste. The soup was not slight thin however the flavor was rather rich. The noodle was to my liking as well moderately hard.
I slightly watched boss Marc David M how to properly slurp ramen.. And yeah it comes with style LOL. Which i suck at at the moment wahaha.

And the rest of the pic are at the IG account

There's a lot to discover here like gyouza, salad, yakibuta, chahan, curry!!. So. Yes. I be back here sometime again!

Ordered their chasu rice bowl and tan tan men and added chasu and tamago as sides.

I think food can still be improved like a softer chasu or a better cut/slice of the portion. I liked the tan tan men, the spiciness was just right. Although i think it lacks pork bits. The tamago's yoke can still be improved. The sauce of the chasu rice was good.

Service was good. Experience was worth the price and going back. Visited this place cause i saw it on spot.ph's under the radar list of ramen places which exactly fits the description.

I like its ambiance, how it is not that crowded; yet still enjoy & experience an authentic japanese style ramen.

No more ala carte menu. Everything comes in a set meal. Good thing they allowed me to order ebi tempura with plain rice. The set meals were too big for me. Bad thing was, the tempura was overcooked. The servers seem to lack training and are unsure on how to answer basic questions.

I gave this restaurant 5 stars the first time I ate here. Sadly I give them 3 stars for this visit only because I ordered something that was not on the menu.

This ramen place isn't as popular as, let's say, Yushoken and Mendokoro or Ukkokei, but the quality of the ramen is very similar. I had the wafu ramen which has a chicken based broth with fish powder and the usual chashu slice, nori, and aji tamago. And, of course, I can't have ramen without gyoza!

I was overall very satisfied with the ramen (broth, noodles, pork, egg) and the gyoza. Interesting to note that it was my first time to be served gyoza with a sliced calamansi. Wasn't sure whether to squeeze it on the gyoza or in the sauce... so I placed a bit on both 128516 It was kind of weird having that citrusy sour taste with my gyoza but that doesn't take anything away from it. 128522

...aaand after the checkup here I am again.

I would dare say it. Their Tantanmen tastes very similar to Yushoken/Mendokoro, but this one is more spicy. Sinipon ako eh.128514 Good thing they give out moist towels that I can dab on my face to ease off some steam.

And in case you're gonna ask, Ukokkei still holds the best TanTanMen. Hands down. 128513

When I say I'll come back, then I'm definitely coming back. I was too early for checkup at Makati Med so went here to kill time since it's gonna be lunch in an hour or so.

Apparently the difference between their Noukou Ramen and the Wafu Ramen is fish powder. That fish powder does magic though because now the ramen tastes very close to Mendokoro's Tsukemen.

Indeed their appetizers for the lunch set change ever so slightly every 2 days.

Also, I noticed they have tantanmen as an off the menu recommended item written on a blackboard so I'm coming back after my checkup for that. 9996128513

At dahil biglang umulan 9748️... 127836RAMEN!!!
Hooray for new discoveries! This one is tucked away in one of Makati's oldest go to places, the Mile Long.

Since their broth is chicken based their "Noukou Ramen" has a similarity to Kichitora's Paitan Chicken Ramen Zenbu No Se but without the Grilled Chicken taste. Still a great alternative. What I like about them is their price point, at P350++ (Roughly 376 after taxes) per bowl, their ramen comes with not one but 5 side dishes! 128525 There's salad, bean sprouts, veggies, pickled veggies, and dessert in the form of coffee jelly. The menu indicates that they change the side dishes daily which I will check the next time I'm here to try their "Wafu Ramen" (probably tomorrow 128514)

I'm going to call it - I officially have my Bowl #2! Yushoken/Mendokoro's Shoyu Tonkotsu is still the Golden Standard, but Yoshida's Wafu is a close and delicious second!

What's great is that they serve their bowls in half portions now at just Php 175.00! Perfect for a light meal.

Nouko ramen is quite good with its strong pork broth flavor and just the right thickness and chewy handmade noodles. I find it to be much better than Ramen Nagi.

Oh and order their gyoza, it packs a strong flavor despite its smaller size compared to other gyozas. Yummy!

I'll definitely be trying their other ramens for sure!

Discovered this restaurant by chance. Parked near it at lunchtime and decided to try it out. The menu is limited, making it better for them to concentrate on quality, I guess.

Everything we ordered was freshly cooked and very delicious. There were a lot of Japanese diners, that tells you a lot already.

My husband swears by their gyoza. He is a gyoza fanatic and used to manage a Japanese restaurant.

Was feeling under the weather the lSt. Few days and the wifey suggested to get some ramen. We decided to go ukokei ramen ron, on the way there we noticed this ramen joint but decided will try it some other time. Alas the ramen gods decided against it as ukokei was closed! Do we decided to try this place out.

Upon entering we immediately liked the place. Livery small, professional, in commercialized ramen house, Japanese chef - owner so far so good good.

We looked at the menu and thank fully it wasn't a big menu. They had 4 ramens and 3 tsukummens, a few appetizers, etc. The restaurant takes pride in making their own noodles...( bonus points) Great! Let's eat!

We ordered 1 gyoza a spicy ramen and the wafu.
The gyoza was very delicious! The spicy ramen was indeed spicy while the wafu ramen which is pork and chicken broth and fish powder was very delicious!

The verdict: the noodles are excellent! Nice and chewy which me and the wifey loves! The chasu tho is small and I would suggest ordering extra. In terms of broth the wifey stated that it was good but lacked the umami factor. For her a good ramen joint but not her favorite. I loved my ramen so for me 4 stars. I will come back here!

Just a small pet peave on my part.... When we got the bill, we noticed the bill was vat exclusive. So our total bill was 1,100. A little pricey since eating in ramen nagi of our favorite yushoken would be cheaper. But beyond that try this place out guys!
