The disconnect between my steady stream of ideas and the urge to write them down is still not fixed but I got to push it, push it, push it real good, ‘no?
I checked my Media Library and discovered I uploaded most of my food shots when I had to give my old Android phone to my niece. So you might see plenty of food posts in the future JUST BECAUSE. For now, here’s my ramen dump.
Left to right, clockwise: (1) Yoshinoya‘s classic beef ramen. I bought it because I love corn. It was okay; (2) I tried Ersao along Pedro Gil almost two years ago, the kuchay did a lot in improving the regular ramen flavor; (3) Mr. Kurosawa‘s tonkotsu tempura ramen is one of the tastiest I had in recent memory; (4) it may not be as appetizing as it looks but this special Taiwan beef noodle soup from Suzhou Dimsum (one of the best hole-in-the-wall in Ermita/Malate!) is tops. This serving is for sharing but on days when you are really craving for tasty soup, one can finish it off just as easily, (5) this version of Maki Mi by Kwong’s Provisions (they used to be in Hole in the Wall in Century City Mall, too bad they closed down) was really good even with its kinda gelatinous consistency (lomi-like but better — sorry, I don’t eat lomi kasi); (6) oh Red King from Ramen Nagi! I tried it when my nose was stuffy and it worked wonders (as it should). I liked Nagi’s Black King ramen better though.
I remember a few more ramens I have tried but did not take photos of. If I have to round up and rank them, I will still go for Suzhou Dimsum’s! Not only their ramens and noodle soups, they also have good (but cheap!) xiao long bao. I suggest you try this long-standing hole in the wall along Mabini Street. They moved a few blocks from their original location near Music21 in Malvar St. ; they are farther down Mabini going the direction of Quirino Avenue.
Eat more, live more!
