We had dinner at Ohayo Maki & Ramen Bar last Sunday.
The prices are more reasonable than Ramen Nagi and other popular ramen restaurants, and while husband still prefers Ramen Nagi, the taste is way better than all the local ramen places in the mall:
The best thing to order was the Gyoza. At ₱195 for 6 pcs, the Gyoza is a steal. It’s perfectly cooked and uber delicious. I would visit again just for these beauties.
We also ordered the Grilled Japanese corn (₱110, Left) and Spicy Salmon Salad (₱190, Right). The corn was a bit weird — I was expecting a cob — but the waiter said their spicy salmon salad was a best seller. I would order other appetizers on my next visit.
The chicken karaage (₱150) was not good. While it came with the option of three different sauces, we didn’t like that it had more chicken skin than meat. Pass!
We ordered the Spicy Salmon Maki (₱250) which was pretty impressive for the price. The other sushi rolls look very interesting as well. I would go back to try the rest of them:
Brother was unimpressed but I loved my Tonkatsu Ramen (₱310), their best selling ramen. It’s not as great as Hanamaruken’s but for the price, it’s not bad after all. The soup is still a solid win! I would reorder this again.
Husband got the Beef Tendon Ramen (₱390). Decent but nothing special. Big chunks of tendon in a bowl.
The interior is simple and cozy. Daughter made friends with the kid at the other table. Oh how nice is it to be a toddler again.
We topped it off with a coffee jelly dessert (₱90). I liked this. The sweetened cream was a perfect complement to the dish.
Coupled with two Cokes, our total bill was just about ₱1,700+ which was very reasonable especially since there was four of us plus one child dining. Everyone was full and satisfied. Food quality was for me, above average.
Note though service quality is average. We kept on calling the waiter to clear the dishes as the table was smaller than expected. We had to request for a few basic things like spoon and forks or a refill of the tissue before we got it. I had to call them in front for faster service.
Card was accepted though so that’s good.
In the end, it’s worth for another trip.
Go have a visit when you can. Come hungry and enjoy!
