Hakata Ikkousha Ramen in Alabang : We tried newest ramen restaurant
I went to Hakata Ikkousha Ramen in Alabang!
As I wrote in my last blog, I went to Alabang to eat ramen at Hakata Ikkousha!
How can I get to Festival Mall (where we can find Hakata Ikkousha) from Makati?
It costs about 400 pesos by taxi and travel time is around 30 minutes without heavy traffic.
I rode a bus, one of the Filipino people’s legs.
First, I headed to SM Makati by bus ↑.
↓ When you go to the SM Makati bus stop, there is a bus that holds the sign “South station”.
I got in. (A little damaged)
The conductor will come to collect fares from passengers.
It was 36 pesos (about 90 yen) from Makati to Alabang.
I reached South Station!
Walking from South Station to the mall takes about 10 to 15 minutes.
I came to the festival mall (Festival Mall)! (Goal !! Part 1)
How do we go to Hakata Ikkousha Ramen after arriving to the festival mall?
In the Philippine mall, ask the guard guy around there if you don’t know where to go.
So you can find the place you are looking for without any trouble.
However! ! ! ! !
Hakata Ikkousha Alabang branch was still in their soft opening.
Even if I say “Ikkousha”, nobody understood. (Lol)
(We knew that the concierge of the service counter knows it!)
First of all, let’s look for eyeglass store called’ OWNDAYS! It’s a famous shop, so it’s not hard to find.
Go straight here and go outside.
Then there is Ikkousha. (Goal !!!! Part 2)
Although I came around 4 pm to avoid the rush hour, I was surprised that it was quite full.
What is the atmosphere and the environment of the restaurant?
Let’s take a look inside!
Does it feel like putting in a little 30 people?
If it is too wide, I think people cannot enjoy tasting comfortably.
But the restaurant had appropriate space so it was good.
On the left corner, people who came alone will be comfortably sitting ^ _ ^
Paper where you can choose different kinds of ramen, hardness of noodles, taste strength etc.
You can request the taste of ramen.
(It is written in both English and Japanese, so it is understandable for Filipinos ♪)
Still, my girlfriend did not know how to fill up the paper, but an employee taught her how to write the request carefully. So accommodating · ·!
Tora: “May I write about your restaurant in a blog?”
When I asked the person responsible for the store (Japanese), I got consent (^ ^)
Person in charge: “Why don’t you try to go to the kitchen … (^^)”
Tora: “… What?! (· ∀ ·)”
· · ·So, we entered the kitchen!
Organization, tidiness, cleanliness are excellent. Clean as new!
It is 10 times as nice as my room! (Lol)
↓ He is a Japanese staff, Mr. Saka.
Mr. Saka cooperated to stir the soup so that it could not be instantiated blogging (?). Lol
I am very interested in the seasoning!
It is on all table seats, so you can use it freely.
There were garlic, red ginger and sesame paste.
It is already perfect for me to fully enjoy the Tonkotsu Ramen! (╹◡╹)
Meals are served!
First of all, Gyoza (dumplings)! (Surprisingly important)
Good Ramen Restaurant = Good Gyouza
This is common sense in the Philippines. Joke.
There are many so-called dumplings, that are far from the authentic ones, in the Philippines.
The gyoza’s texture here was just right, ingredients also have stable taste!
I was waiting then they served me the main order!
I chose Salt Tonkotsu.
The taste of the soup is good.
It is a menu that seems to be appreciated by women since the soup is mild and easy to have.
My girlfriend chose Tonkotsu.
Compared to salt tonkotsu, the taste of the soup is strong.
As for me, this is recommended because it is easy to feel full when you order this. (^ ^)
Compared to a ramen restaurant that starts with letter N that is rapidly growing in the Philippines,
“The taste is just right. Not too weak, not too strong.”
“Elegant and high quality”
Above is the impression I had.
For people living in Makati, I hope that they will open a branch here soon.
(To the owner who might see this, please! ^^)
