Weekend Food Tripping at: Kokoro Ramenya

It was a lovely Sunday night last week when hubby and I have decided to shop at S&R for "stocks", meaning, whatever I may crave for!  *laughs* We've decided to head out for dinner at Kokoro Ramenya which has earned raves from food bloggers for a nice date away from home!

I was super excited to get my own taste of warm noodle soup that could make or break a good dinner.

Php155.00 (approx $3.60)
Everyone who has tried dining at Kokoro Ramenya has been raving about their Gyoza.  Personally speaking, I'm not a Gyoza lover but I ended up eating a piece and nodding myself out of satisfaction!  We even went and order another set for take away!  

The "dumpling" skin was crunchy at the bottom yet the pork inside is tender and super flavorful!  I love how a tiny amount of sauce would ooze out on every bite!  Definitely a must-try!

Beef Shoyu Ramen
Php285.00 (approx $6.75)
Beef brisket in Shoyu noodle soup
 Since I got pregnant, I have been choosing beef over chicken and pork (which is very unusual).  The first thing I asked the server was the amount of "fat" or "tendon" in their beef brisket and I was told not to worry as it is quite meaty!  

Once the Beef Shoyu Ramen was served, I knew I made the right decision as the soup itself seems very flavorful and rich!  And it was as good as it looks!

The noodles were cooked just right and the crunchiness of vegetables that goes with the good amount of flavorful beef brisket made my tummy very happy!  I had to ask for more soup as I really love the flavors!

Hakata Classic
Php325.00 (approx $7.74)
Rich and creamy Tonkotsu noodle soup boiled for 18 hours
topped with Kikurage, Chasu and Soft-boiled egg

Hakata Classic is one of the most recommended noodle soup and Mr. AMW decided to go for it.  The broth was obviously boiled for a long period of time as it traps a good amount of pork flavor.

Mr. AMW thinks the noodles could be improved as it doesn't go as well as the noodles on my beef brisket.  Maybe, for the future, a choice of different types of noodles for customers to try?  

The soft-boiled egg was done perfectly it puts Mr. AMW to temporary "euphoria". 

Overall, the experience was wonderful!  Servers were very attentive and nice.  The place looks very comfortable and clean! You can either enjoy the view of Roxas Boulevard or enjoy the view of their very clean kitchen!  Since it was late at night, we've decided to face the kitchen and I'm happy with how hygienic everything was handled! 

The price of Kokoro Ramenya is average, not too cheap yet not too expensive for the amount of food you get.  I will want to go back for the Beef Brisket noodles and the Gyoza.

Do you enjoy Japanese ramen?

After dining at Kokoro Ramenya, I really missed our Tokyo trip and the free ramen we get every night from the hotel!
