Tokyo Tokyo Ramen

The famous Japanese food chain reintroduces to the public their contribution to the ramen craze.  There are three variants to choose from: Spicy Chicken, Braised Pork, and Tempura Miso.  We chose the last two.  We ordered the Braised Pork Ramen as part of a Combo Pack (Php 150), meaning it comes with a glass of Red Iced Tea and Gyoza.  For the Tempura Miso, we bought a Snack Size (Php 99).

The ramen is served with thin, high quality noodles, shredded cabbage, nori, and half of a hardboiled egg.  The broth of the Braised Pork Ramen tastes a little like cardboard; it lacks the heartiness of made-from-scratch broth.  Good thing the meat pieces are juicy, flavorful, and a little sweet.

The Tempura Miso is better.  The miso adds the needed flavor for the one-dimensional broth.  This ramen has a punctuated and deeper taste.  This ramen comes with one piece of well-fried ebi tempura.  Delicious.

The Gyoza is OK, good enough.  It is yummy, but not extraordinary.

Try some Tokyo Tokyo Ramen and judge for yourself.
