Ramen x Mochi!

by - August 12, 2013

Japanese food is one of my favourite cuisines. I think I could see myself eating their food forever and it's quite timely for my cravings that I got invited to try the newly opened ramen restaurant over at the Podium called Shitamachi Japanese Chashu House

It's at the 5th floor of Podium and this is actually only my second time to eat ramen, but I think I already fell in love with their Tan Tan Men ramen. Their menu specifies it as the spicy kind, but for me it's not the tongue-burning kind. It was just right. :)

The texture of the noodles and flavor of the soup was just perfection! I was so glad that I didn't miss out on trying this. :)

Oh and just so you know, you better go there early, because when they've already served their 100th bowl of ramen, whether that be just 4PM or 8PM or a far cry from closing time, they will officially stop serving ramen and you would have to wait another day to have it.

BUT, just in case you really weren't able to make it in time for the ramen, they also have other food on their menu such as rice bowls and salads. :)

Happy bloggers and our happy tummy! But wait! It doesn't end there!:) With a scrumptious Japanese dinner also comes super yummy dessert!

So yes, we hoped to Mochi Cream's kiosk that was just a few steps away from Shitamachi and had a taste of their mochi!:)

There were so many flavors to choose from that I didn't know where to start! At first I wanted Chocolate, then Green tea, then white chocolate and...ahhh! I felt lost! haha!:)) But in the end, I made up my mind with Banana Chocolate and it was sooooo good! They used real puréed banana and even had little chocolate chip bits inside. ^_^ *cravings*

You can also order a box of 12 to take home with you. :) I myself think I want a box just full of Banana chocolate. =P Oh and they're opening a Mochi Cream cafe over at Makati soon, so watch out for it!^_^

Thank you to my love, Arnie and Sir Allan for inviting us to this! My tummy is currently hungry again!:))
