THE brand new upscale interiors and excellent service of Ramen Kamekichi’s new location will definitely blow your mind. The restaurant maintains its original menu (for now) while slowly adding new and exciting Japanese dishes including their delicious homemade Matcha Ice Cream.
Our lovely dinner started with the Shoyu Ramen. They call this “ramen for starters” because of its basic soy sauce soup base. The noodles are thick and al dente. Any ramen virgin will appreciate the light character and flavor of the soup.
The Seafood Chahan at Ramen Kamekichi goes perfectly with the Gyoza. I usually order these two side dishes along with my ramen. This time though, we got to try their Yakitori and Yakibuta, these are yummy Japanese Chicken and Pork barbecues that have become my new favorites.
But I felt like I spoke too soon after I tried the Buta Ika Shougayaki. It is a pork and squid dish sautéed in lots of onions. OMG. Definitely getting this one with my Chahan next time.
Great meals are always made more perfect with good company and conversation. We (Karlo, Kat, Patty, and myself) had the pleasure of dining with two of the owners Philip Rodriguez and Patrice Uytengsu. It was a great time catching up with these two who are truly passionate in everything that they do. In the case of Ramen Kamekichi, I’d say they flipped it right.
Rest assured Ramen Kamekichi fans can expect the same great taste they have come to love while dining in a new location with an ambience that befits that perfect bowl of ramen and other delicious Japanese dishes.
The new Ramen Kamekichi is now located at 38 Gorordo Ave., beside Carolinas with ample basement parking. It is near the Ayala access road. They are open for lunch and dinner and until 2am on weekends. Yeah!
