No matter the occasion, be it a hot or cold day, ramen is something people often crave. If you happen to be a hopeless ramentics yourself, we’ve compiled 10 ramen places that deliver. Take note that a lot of them come in kits that need some assembly and cooking, though. This is to ensure that your ramen is guaranteed fresh.
These 10 Ramen Places Can Send Noods Right to Your Doorstep
10. Mendokoro Ramenba (Makati)
Mendokoro Ramenba is known for its rich pork-based broth and springy, almost curly noodles. They offer a secret menu in-store, but mainstays include their Shio, Shoyu, Tantanmen, and their not-so-secret Super Chasu ramen. They also offer frozen gyoza, chicken karaage, and extra slices of pork chasu for those who like more meat in theirs, along with their chahan fried rice.

The quarantine has me browsing the internet for restaurants that deliver, and imagine how happy I was when I discovered that @mendokoro_ramenba is part of the list! That's means that ramen lovers can enjoy their favorite noods— from their Shiyo, Shoyu, not-so-secret Giant Chasu, among others. Plus, their Gyoza is up for grabs too. —— While the line is long, and a 2 to 3 week wait is in order, it's important to note that they send Ramen Kits to you. That's deconstructed elements of your ramen, which you then have to heat up and put together. There may be work involved, but the end result is worth it because you get ramen as though it were freshly served in the restaurant itself. —— So far, my favorites include their Super Chasu— a meaty ramen that comes with a rich pork broth, springy noodles, and a massive (and I repeat massive) slice of slightly charred, slightly sweet but savory pork. Another fave was their Shoyu— a classic, soy-based ramen with a thinner slice of pork and the same rich broth. The Gyoza is a must-have too. The filling is just like the chasu— savory but with a subtle sweetness. Skin is not thick, and it has that combination of softness on top and a satisfying crunch once you reach the bottom. —— Sadly, Quezon City isn't covered by the delivery, but if you live somewhere in Makati, Pasay, Taguig, Pasig, San Juan and Mandaluyong, then you're lucky enough to be part of the area. Now, I'm secretly hoping someone will send me noods. Noodles, mind you. Not nudes. Yikes. 🤣 . . .

7. Ramen Daisho (Mandaluyong)
Ramen Daisho mirrors the Ukokkei Ramen Ron style of cooking, which features a thin milky broth base. It comes in four variants: Miso, Shio, Shoyu, and Tonkotsu— each with customizable side dishes and toppings. And get this— they don’t use milk in the broth! It’s actually a result of slow-cooking good quality bones for that rich flavor that comes with their light broth. Aside from ramen, Ramen Daisho also includes Japanese favorites like rice meals, curry dishes, sushi, and appetizers in the form of chicken karaage and gyoza.
