Remember the Ukokkei Ramen Ron scare of 2012? I remember it like it was just last year!
No matter how much you despise the owner, dislike the service and the waitstaff, or even hate the decor, you have to admit that you cannot find a better bowl of ramen here in Manila. And I’m not even talking about the Tantan-men.
Even before this short-lived Ramen Apocalypse, I’ve tried to find a place that could rival Ukokkei’s Ramen. Ramen Bar and Moshi Koshi Noodle Boss are my “pwede na” ramen quick-fix places where I always get the RBS #1 and Miso Ramen, respectively. I had high hopes for Nomama where everything was good…except the ramen. Don’t even bother with Ajisen Ramen.
That’s why I’m both happy and sad that this new contender has come along…
