Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen, Alabang Town Center
Missy is a sucker for Japanese food. She loves sushi, tempura, sashimi, yakitori, tonkatsu, etcetera etcetera. She always has a positive feeling towards anything Japanese…
Yeah, she used not to finish a bowl of ramen until she had a taste of Ajitama Tonkotsu of Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen in Alabang Town Center. Oh boy, it was good!
Did we say their ramen tasted good? Let we take that back. It was not good, it was great! Plus points for their perfectly cooked egg! (Because not everyone is a fan of half-cooked or raw.)
Aburi Chashu Tonkotsu (Generous slices of Aburi Chashu topped on Ikkoryu's Oringinal Tonkotsu - Php400)
Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen (Ikkoryu original hearty Tonkotsu ramen garnished with Chashu, green onion, bamboo shoots, wood ear and dried seaweed. - Php330)
Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen’s ramen mainly uses the Tonkotsu broth so it’s thick, flavorful, and oh so tasty. Also, we liked that we can decide on the noodle quality/tenderness – soft, normal, or hard. Since we do not know what exactly “noodle tenderness” meant or how will it affect the taste or the presentation of our orders, we went for the regular/normal option. (You can never go wrong with the normal, eh?).
Meats and other ingredients were all fresh and done perfectly. Also, condiments are readily available in case you want to further enhance the taste to your liking.
Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen is a little pricey as compared to other ramen joints, but the quality of their food compensates for the price. Their serving is pretty good too, since we were really full after.
Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen has several branches. We dined at ATC, Alabang. The place was a little small but cozy and clean.
Staff were friendly, they even looked after Skye when she decided to roam around after eating. It would be better though if they will offer house tea to their customers right after they are seated instead of waiting for them to request for it. In business, we always have to exceed our clients’ expectations, right?
OUR (UNSOLICITED) PLATE OF THOUGHTS
We ordered gyoza (Php150) and the taste did not fail. It was crunchy to the outside but soft and juicy to the inside. Their gyoza is a highly recommended side dish.
Their rice toppings also deliver as great alternative.
Now, whenever we crave for ramen, we instantly think of Ikkoryu!
