Weekend Food Trip at: Kenji Tei Ramen House

It is Sunday and a couple of days left before Christmas!  Let's talk about food!  

Last weekend, I went to Benefit's First Birthday Party and before I left Greenbelt 5 for  my doctor's check, we've decided to fill our tummy with warm, feel-good food before we brave the traffic.  We originally wanted to visit Bulgogi Brothers but we want something filling but not too heavy!  Off we went to Kenji Tei.. a Ramen House.

What I usually do, is to check in Foursquare and read various tips from people who have given this restaurant a try!  Do you do that too? :)

Miso Butter Corn Ramen
Large: Php348.00 (approx $8.70)
Chasu Miso ramen with butter and corn

Since I'm over with my morning sickness which started happened just 2 weeks ago, I am into sweet corn and the "butter corn" ramen + my liking for miso soup is a great combination that made me decided to go for this ramen dish out of all the choices they have!

So far, the dish didn't fail, I would prefer to have the butter on the side int he future but the noodles are very fresh and tasty, there were around 4 pieces of thinly sliced Chasu (braised pork).  You can pick a regular sized or large sized dish but we went for the latter as Mr. AMW and I like to share our food!  I would prefer it if there would be more noodles! 

The miso soup tastes good but for the first time, I can't finish up a bowl of soup because of the oily feel of butter!  Again, note to self, butter on the side in the future!

Crispy Chicken Teriyaki
Php228.00 (approx $5.70)

Reading some of the tips from Foursquare, one dish caught my attention as a lot of past customers recommended this dish --- The Crispy Chicken Teriyaki!  When the dish arrived, I was in high hopes expecting some "zen" moment but it didn't happen!  Personally speaking, I will enjoy it much better if I can taste a bit of the chicken but that didn't happen as the chicken was sliced too thinly.

 Yaki Gyoza
6pcs for Php188.00 (approx $4.70)

My favorite Gyoza to date (spoken by someone who's not really into Gyoza) is the one we had from Kokoro Ramenya.  This probably comes in second.  I like it that I get pork and vegetable on each bite.  Very tasty and smells really good.

Of course, there's always going to be a Coca Cola for Mr. AMW and I usually go for water but for today, I wanted Iced Tea and I'm happy with it!

Overall, the experience was good.  We will return to try other Ramen or rice dishes.  Service was really good and the ambiance is very comfortable I can probably eat on my own!
