It was Friday and payday, I got out early from my office for a mall stroll. My hubby was still busy with his work so off I toured around at Landmark, Glorietta and finally at kitchen wares of SM Makati. I was so tired and hungry when my hubby fetched me. Spaghetti and ice tea are enough to sustain the grumbling sound in my tummy. But since he was hungry too, he told me to spend our Friday night at Blue Bay Walk.
Parking was almost full when we arrived. We walked around to look for something unique to dine in. We passed by at Kimono Ken, a Japanese restaurant and decided to try their dish. It was full inside so we decided to sit at the al fresco dining area. But by the stroke of luck, the waitress approached us and cordially invited us to go inside. Table for two welcomed us and there we took our cozy seats. Happy us!
Kimon Ken serves Yakimono, Sushi, Maki, Noodles, Teppanyaki, Ippinyori, Salads, Desserts, Soups and rice. Since we are a fan of ramen, we indulged with hot noodles.
I ordered their best-seller Shoyu Ramen (shoyu means soy sauce) which comes from soy as based soup, ramen noodles, two slices of naruto (a type of kamaboko or white fish cake with pink special pattern), slices of chashu (thin fatty slices of braised pork), scallion, boiled egg and dried seaweeds called nori.
My hubby ordered Niku Udon. Its soup is soy-based too with udon noodles (thick strips made from wheat flour), with slices of beef toppings, scallion, two slices of naruto and dried seaweeds. Both our orders were served hot in a big bowl.
Our drinks were watermelon shakes.
Truly, their best-seller noodle tastes great. Soup is not salty compared to other ramen, with less oil but flavorful. The chashu was so tender and tastes just right. Because the serving was big, our tummies were filled to the brim.
But before I say no, I tasted my hubby’s noodles and found out, it was so good also. But Shoyu Ramen was better.
There are many ramen restaurants sprouted like mushrooms in the country, but Kimono Ken stand out for being something different. And what’s more, their rate is affordable.
We will go back with our kids so they can taste the delicious ramen of Kimono Ken.
