RYU Ramen Review [FOOD]

Like it? Share it!

I love Japanese food. It’s my favorite among all cuisines. From raw sashimi to yummy ramen! I actually have a quest to find the best tasting ramen here in Manila and so far Kichitora’s Pai Tan Ramen is winning (review was not made! have to dine there again soon!).

They have a very cozy interior.

They actually have a number of dishes that are pretty common in ramen houses. Price ranges from 200-500php

RYU RAMEN MENU
A couple of weeks ago, my good friend Happy Tummy and I went out for lunch at RYU Ramen at SM Jazz Makati. He said reviews are nice and another colleague mentioned they have one of the best tasting Tantanmen Ramen. I was intrigued. I scoured the internet for reviews and they were raving about it!

Alas, the ramen wasn’t spectacular in my opinion. I ordered the “HOT” variant and found the noodles to be too thick and doesn’t have that “bite” that we look for in ramen noodles. The broth was too watery and there wasn’t enough noodles. The saving grace of this dish was its pork slices which was very flavorful. I appreciated its smokey flavor.

Their Tantanmen Ramen isn’t that bad but it wasn’t exceptional like everyone is talking about either. I found that there wasn’t much dimension on their broth. It was flat. At 400+ it wasn’t worth it. I wasn’t able to finish mine, not because it filled me up but it had that “nakakasawa” feel. You get used to the taste immediately.

Happy Tummy ordered their curry and he said it wasn’t special either. The pork meat was too tough and ordinary compared to YABU’s. The saving grace of this dish was the rice. He said it was like japanese rice, small, a bit chewy, and nice to eat.

All in all, I don’t think I will be dining here again anytime soon.

    You said nakakasawa effect, I think much oil in the broth. Ramen's good because of the firmness of noodles, the toppings and the broth. Well, it seems the decor's awesome too.

    Were planning to visit pa naman to next week! Waah. Too bad sa lasa. 🙁 It looks yummy pa naman for me, I remembered kare kare sa color. 😀 Buti na lang I read your review, I think we should find other japanese resto na affordable din. Thank you Ms. Kat!

    Are you willing to re-review the dish some other time? Sometimes, some restaurants are not able to consistently replicate the taste of their dishes which is kinda bad. This has always happened me whenever I revisit a resto or its other branches.

    The place has a very nice interior. P400 for a not so yummy ramen? Eek. Haha! Have you tried other dishes tho?

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 15, 2014 at 6:01 am

    I haven't tried this one. Although the food rating is pretty low, the place looks nice. I'll try to visit this still and perhaps have a different order. Maybe they have good ones too.

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 16, 2014 at 7:06 am

    Sounds disappointing. I wonder if the other dishes are any worth.

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 17, 2014 at 9:55 am

    Hi ms. Kat have you tried L glutathione white charm from japan? And how about luxxe white? for acne and marks thanks!

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 19, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    Wala namang bago sa review mo. Same same.

    Vitamin C does not whiten skin. I have dark-skinned friends who mega dose on vitamin C and have been doing so for many years and they're not 'white.' I think saying Vitamin C lightens our skin is very misleading.

    I'm not into Japanese food maybe because I keep thinking of sushi. I like my food cooked. I think Tokyo Tokyo is the only resto I have been too. Hmmm…maybe I will try one if everyone recommends the best jap resto. SO I guess, this one wouldn't be it 🙂

    They say Ramen Nagi is great. They have it in MOA. Hopefully you could make a review in the near future. 😀

    Was about to recommend this place to my hubby. He loves ramen. But maybe we should try another ramen place.

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 23, 2014 at 2:07 am

    Try Kitchitora!

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva July 23, 2014 at 8:33 am

    My mom loves ramen and she keeps on mentioning this, but as you said it is kind of "nakakasawa" so I'll tell her that! sayang ang 400! Have you tried Tamagoya in Marikina City? Their ramen is so cheap yet good, price ranges from 100+ -250+ I guess, and I'd say it's worth it! but you actually have to line up when you have to eat there because it is always a full house.

    Hi… Ask ko lang po how effective ung glutawhite kc un ang ginagamit ko ngayon as whitener sinasabayan ko ito ng 4 capsules ng fern c, bale 1 capsule ng glutawhite 100mg at 4 capsule ng fern c? Tama po ba ang combination nato? Thanks po…..
