Ramen enthusiasts, hear, hear! Ramen Nagi just opened its 21st branch at O Square 2 in Greenhills. At the media launch, we were introduced to the staple favorites: Butao King aka as the ORIGINAL King (classic bone soup, served with handcrafted noodles and pork chasu), the RED King (spicy blend of garlic chili oil and cayenne pepper in a red velvety, savory broth), the BLACK King (a mix of fragrant black garlic, squid ink on silky broth topped with a ball of minced pork, black sesame and Nagi spices) and the 4th must-try dish, the GREEN King which is a Japanese and Italian fusion in a bowl (a mix of fresh basil and olive oil with a delectable tonkotsu broth, lavishly garnished with grated parmesan cheese and marble chasu).
The best part is the big loaded bowls of ramen are so affordable! For an average price of P250, a ramen bowl can satisfy a big belly. Otherwise, it’s good for sharing which is what my daughter and I did.
Ramen Nagi is happy to announce the birth of its new baby. The restaurant hails from Fukuoka, Japan and was founded by Ikuta Satoshi in 2006. It offers authentic premium ramen with branches in Japan, Taiwan, Hongkong, China, Singapore, the USA, and the Philippines.
What I like about Ramen Nagi is that customers are allowed to customize their ramen bowl. Even the level of heat that one prefers is readily accommodated. In our family, only my son likes spicy food. So when we asked for our Original King not to be spicy, “No worries, Ma’am,” was the quick reply of our server. The cooking is also done in an open kitchen (at least for the Greenhills branch) so guests can see the actual preparation of the dishes. The Japanese chefs and sous chefs are friendly and take the time to answer questions about the food they are cooking. The best part is the big loaded bowls of ramen are so affordable! For an average price of P250, a ramen bowl can satisfy a big belly. Otherwise, it’s good for sharing which is what my daughter and I did.
Ramen Nagi offers new flavors every 2 weeks. These are limited edition ramen flavors so diners can be treated to something original every time they visit. There are also side orders to choose from. My kids devoured the chicken kara-age and the gyoza. I love the salad with the crispy noodles on top – a definite winner in my book.
I’m sure all of you are hungry by now. So what are you waiting for? Come on over to the nearest Ramen Nagi restaurant and have a steaming hot ramen bowl of your choice. DELICIOUS!
