RAMEN NAGI Butao 豚王 Opens in Manila @RamenNagiManila

Coming from my more-than-memorable experience at Butao Ramen in Central, Hong Kong, I am excited to try out Ramen Nagi here in the Philippines, curious as ever if they will be able to replicate the very same ingredients – from the Kakuni to the Hakata noodles to its spicy miso fireball dropped on the Red King Ramen. Will they be able to match Butao Ramen’s unparalleled expertise in producing ramen? Will they be able to sustain the expectations of many ramen fanatics now that Ramen Nagi branches in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Indonesia has set its bar pretty high? And as usual, I went to Ramen Nagi to find out.

RYU Ramen and Curry

For a P280 Tantanmen, RYU Ramen is certainly cheap for a ramen place. All of my friends and I ordered Tantanmen, since this is their most popular ramen, and it did not disappoint. I made mine extra spicy. (I like making things spicy because it adds to the excitement of eating it!)

CURRY MONSTER Macau

Don’t confuse Curry Monster with Monster Curry in Singapore. Curry Monster is popular in Macau as a quick fix to your Tonkatsu cravings. If you know me, I’m never a fan of Tonkatsu set meals since they’re rather overpriced. It’s just full of unlimited cabbage that you can easily buy in a grocery!
