Ramen Like No Other - Ramen Nagi Philippines

Hong Kong's Butao and Tokyo's Ramen Nagi is now set to invade Manila. wahahah With its newly opened store at 5th Level. Sky Park, SM Aura Premier, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.  Surely, this is another must-visit restaurants for the Ramen fans.

From the name,  this is definitely a Japanese concept store which mainly offers ramen. Though situated in a premier mall, the bunting, and the over-all interior will definitely give you the feel of Japan/Hong Kong streets.
Reg flags, Japanese font, and Crew that keeps on shouting Japanes phrases every now and then.
You can't own the whole table. If table is good for four person and they have a new customer, they will maximize the seats beside you. Winning a new friend indeed.
This is how you make your Ramen like no other at Ramen Nagi.
  • Pick your order of Ramen. They say Butao King is their best seller, but I'm quite curious about the black colored soup (Black King), that's why I ordered the black one :)
  • Customize the taste of the soup base. Add or lessen the richness of taste, special sauce and garlic.
  • Select your toppings. Pick your cut of pork and garnish.
  • Adjust the level of spice with Butao home made fire sauce.
  • Choose the firmness of the noodles.

 Keep yourself clean while sipping the soup with this disposable bib. :)

Taaadaaa... Ramen Nagi Black King... Very tasty and delicious. The back color of the soup is from the ink of  squid which gave the ramen soup a very distinct texture.
**Black King price SRP - P410.00 only

Customizing Butao King.
Here's the Butao King --very creamy pork broth soup for those who want light soup. You can add spices and condiments if you want to make the taste more rich or heavier.
** Butao King SRP- P390.00

Other ramen add-ons like seaweed, green onions, cabbage, kikurage, noodles, and pork are also available.
And look at how the eggs are perfectly done...
Note that they implement no take out policy. Ramen will not taste good if not consumed immediately, according to them. Well I guess, partly it has psychological effect also as you really need to eat it in there to complete your "Ramen Nagi" experience.

Initially you will feel it's expensive but once you tried, you'll know its worth it. I was not even able to finish my bowl of Black King.

One thing I just don't like about this restaurant when I visited it,  I find it too noisy, maybe I just had a headache that time and I was really annoyed by the staffs who keep of greeting and shouting. On the other hand, good thing I understand that from the point of view of the marketing it's really important to give the customers a total brand experience. Kudos! on that part. :) lol
