Quest for the Best Ramen: Omakase

Good morning early birds! Feels good to wake up early in the morning like this. Duh, so fake. Of course this is on queue. I must still be lying flat on my stomach dead asleep at this time of the day. I just wanted to write something about my quest for the best ramen in the world! Yes, I should be in Japan, but my world is confined in Metro Manila so let’s start with Omakase in Greenhills. No laughing please.

Since we started faking this, I mean, I started with faking my wakefulness, might as well deceive you again. Whut? Let’s pretend that this is my first attempt in search for the best-tasting ramen there is, okay? I regret that I didn’t write about the past ramen-tasting sessions(?) but since I just numbered this first, then I must create a second and so on.

Quest of the Best Ramen #1 

  • Restaurant: Omakase (where I allegedly lost my precious films, huhu.)
  • Branch: Greenhills
  • Ramen of Choice: Shoyu Ramen

Presentation: The soup is not So Hott. If it’s a big bowl of soup, isn’t it supposed to be caution-worthy hot? Yes it’s a big bowl of ramen they served, but not the biggest I’ve ever downed. Nyaha. (I shouldn’t be comparing, this is truly a fake first attempt.) Speaking of bowls, theirs is quite thick that could have helped keep the freshly-cooked feel had it been served, again, So Hott. Bottomline, I want my ramen as super hot as to melt a thermometer. Verdict: 3 out of 5 pairs of chopsticks.

Taste: Shoyu ramen is very common, it’s like a generic kind of ramen if there is such. Correct me if I’m wrong but as far as I can remember, Shoyu is just what the soup is called, just the base, the broth. In Omakase, Shoyu ramen is topped with chicken, fish cake, hard-boiled egg and a few leaves. The soup was so tasty and I can attest that there is no hint of Knorr cubes. Verdict: 4 out of 5 pairs of chopsticks.

Service: Their team is not well-trained in customer service. The restaurant was a little more than half full but the service crew were already confused on who’s to attend to whom. Our bowls were not placed directly before us. I feel like although it wasn’t a hard work pulling our bowls from the far end of the table, it is still considerably uncourteous to just leave the food without even asking which is for whom. Verdict: This is 3 out of 5 pairs of chopsticks.

Ambience: I like the wall papers and the lamps. The couch is comfy. The interiors looked like it was intended for little Japanese girls but the lighting was a little dim for it. I like it like that!Verdict: 5 out of 5 pairs of chopsticks.

Price: Price range for ramen is around 195-245 per bowl. (I will get back to you on this, I’m not so sure.) Price is just right. Verdict: 4 out of 5 pairs of chopsticks.
