Craving for a taste of authentic Asia in the metro? Spice up your life with this week’s flavourful picks!
Sharing with you, 4 of my top picks from Japanese ramen, Pinoy comfort food delights and even Vietnamese cuisine. I’m a frequent Eastwood City goer, so I often do my food trippings here, as they have a constellation of unique restaurants that you cannot easily find anywhere. Hmmmm a true blue food paradise, a utopia for foodies and people who are in a relationship with food (like me!!)
I soooo love Ramen Kuroda not only because they’re super affordable, but also because I’m a fan of their Aka Ramen. I’m one of their frequent customers and I’m really glad to discover that they have a branch here in Eastwood. I only have praises for this brand and for me, they are one of the best ramen places in the metro.
They serve bowls of authentic ramen goodness priced at only P180 (includes half an egg and a piece of Char Siu pork). If you feel “bitin” with your Char Siu, you can buy additional 3 pieces for only 50 pesos! O diba? San ka pa?!!!

Looking for a place where you can customize your favorite sisig? Visit Sisig Society at Eastwood Cyberwalk and get to Make your Own Sisig! Here, you may choose from a wide variety of sauces and ingredients that you can add to your sisig. They also have classic sisig as well as sisig with bacon and cheese!
As for my personal favorite, I really love their Crispy Kare-kare. Imagine your Bagnet bacon strips on your favorite Kare-kare sauce and bagoong…. MMMMMmmmmmm!! The serving size is for sharing and priced at only P159! Super sulit!
Aside from enjoying sisig as “pulutan”, I also recommend you try their Bacon Bagnet for only P119 per plate!

Soban K-Town Grill
Going on a Korean foodtrip with friends? Check-out Soban K-Town Grill and order their 6 Flavor Samgyupsal for only P1400++ (good for 3-4).
I recommend this because their samgyupsal comes in 6 interesting flavors like fruity, wine, spicy, doenjang (fermented soybean paste) and more! For the said price, you can enjoy unli Korean side dishes as well. =)
They also have highly satisfying Kimchi fries and Korean inspired cocktails for a more pleasurable dining experience. My personal pick would be their Seouljito (Korean version of the classic Mojito). You simply can’t go wrong with Soban.

Annam Noodle Bar
I’ve been getting quite a lot of raves and recommendations about this place from friends and readers, so I didn’t hesitate to drop by, when I visited Eastwood last week.
I must admit, that I’m not yet well acquainted with Vietnamese food though, however, I must say that my visit here at Annam Noodle Bar truly aroused my curiosity. Hmmmmmm…. After trying out their best sellers, I now understand why they’ve been getting so much attention from the food community these days. Their Australian Beef Pho is definitely worth the trip to Eastwood. Their Banh Mi was also a treat for the taste buds.
I was also impressed with that Longgan and Lotus drink that we had…. it was ultra refreshing and new to my taste palate. I remember my friend telling me, “I-try mo to Mae, super sarap!” I believe you now pre!
Last but not least, is their Vanilla Custard dessert. Hands down. “Naloka ako” I was simply blown away with it! Phew!!! It was super creamy, silky and you can definitely taste and smell the fresh vanilla beans. Never leave Annam without trying it!
