There’s a new ramen restaurant in Quezon City, and it’s opening just in time for the cold weather!
Ramen Yushoken, a sister ramen restaurant of Mendokoro Ramenba (both are under Nippon Hasha), is opening its first branch in Quezon City. We got a sneak peek of what’s in store for ramen lovers of the North, and it’s super exciting!
The new Ramen Yushoken sits on a corner lot in QC’s Scout Area, and it’s one of the few standalone branches of the brand.
The sit-down restaurant boasts of a gorgeous high ceiling, a spacious dining area with a couple of booth tables, and counter seating that gives you a front-row seat to the wonders of the kitchen.
Coming from the group that brought some of the most sought-after Japanese restaurants in Metro Manila, Ramen Yushoken undoubtedly offers the same excellent Japanese restaurant experience.
Of course, we couldn’t resist trying out some of their bestselling dishes.
Their ramen, specifically the Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen, featured such a rich flavorful broth that you’re sure to slurp it all until the last drop. Add to that their perfectly cooked noodles, and you’ve got yourself a bowl of top-tier ramen.
I couldn’t get enough of the chashu that came with my Tonkotsu Ramen. It was a thick cut of pork belly, perfectly cooked to be melt-in-your-mouth tender, and it had that delicious smokey flavor that we loved. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself ordering more chashu.
Another noodle dish that we tried is their Maze Soba which is perfect for those who love noodles but would rather have it without the broth. The Maze Soba is quite massive and might even be good for sharing. It’s overloaded with noodles, bean sprouts, veggies, meat, and flavorful sauce.
While we most definitely love our noodles, we just had to try Ramen Yushoken’s side dishes. Our favorite was the gyoza which was packed with flavorful meat—and we do mean packed!
At this Ramen Yushoken branch, we also got to try the Melon Chashu Bun which is a delicious sandwich made in collaboration with Kumori. It features a sweet melonpan (or Japanese sweet bun) with savory chashu, sauce, and veggies. This is a must-try, especially for those who love sweet and savory food!
Whatever dish you want to try and enjoy at Ramen Yushoken, you can expect dishes made from the finest ingredients and with the utmost skill—you can taste it in every bite.
With Ramen Yushoken’s savory and tasty Japanese dishes served in such a stylish setting, we’re sure that this is one new restaurant in Quezon City that you’ll come back to again and again.
