SANTOUKA Hokkaido Ramen is now in the Philippines



SANTOUKA, a well-known ramen place in Japan since 1988 is now bringing joy to us, Filipinos, as they opened their most recent branch last February 2013 in Makati. Hooray!

SANTOUKA Ramen’s Philippine branch also serves the same creamy Hokkaido Shio Soup Base that has been what Santouka was known for. It’s pretty hard to find a ramen place here that serves shio/salt base (usually, ramen places serve miso or shoyu) so when we heard that Santouka serves shio base soup, we just had to try it!

Just so you know, Santouka’s soup is simmered for at least 20 hours to get that awesome distinct taste and texture. This world-wide brand is very strict in serving only the best. All ingredients are imported from Japan, even the pork meat - so you are assured to get the same enjoyment you can have in Santouka Japan, Canada or USA.

FYI: Santouka’s soup is never boiled and is maintained and SERVED AT THE BEST temperature to be fully enjoyed by everyone.

This is a MUST TRY in SANTOUKA. Have you ever tried ROASTED PORK CHEEKS?! Oh my goodness! These are extremely valuable parts of a pig, which are only about 200-300 grams per pig. So you can just imagine how fast these can be sold out. Just pure tenderness and yummy flavors that will make you want for more.

KARA-MISO RAMEN (Spicy Soybean Paste Flavor)
This had the right amount of spiciness, which is very bearable to everyone, making it easy to finish the whole bowl of soup :p

AWASE-AJI RAMEN (Mixed Soup Ramen with Rice)
A ramen soup like no other: combination of salt, soy sauce and soybean. 
After finishing the noodles, put rice in soup and continue to enjoy!!!


Santouka Ramen also offers SET MENUs that usually consist of:
- 1 small ramen
- 1 rice bowl
- 1 chawanmushi (egg custard)
- 1 tsukemono (pickled veggies)
- 1 salad
- 1 tea
*** This is super sulit!!! I would love to try all of Santouka’s set menu meals :D

FOR DESSERT, you may also enjoy MOCHI CREAM in Santouka. Mochi cream is the biggest mochi maker in Japan; and, it is the only mochi here in the Philippines that is Japanese made, composed of 3 layers: CHEWY SKIN, FLAVOR and CREAM.
