Ramen Shimada soft opens in Pasay
UPDATE as of July 4, 2019: Ramen Shimada has moved from Pasay to Makati.
Japanese restaurants are becoming increasingly popular in Manila nowadays. From Michelin-starred ones to affordable hole-in-the-wall hubs, it’s safe to say that Filipinos have developed a liking for Japanese cuisine, particularly ramen. If you’re a true-blue ramen fan or just simply a foodie, you’ve got to see the new ramen restaurant that opened in Pasay: Ramen Shimada.
Located along EDSA across Heritage Hotel in Pasay City is where Ramen Shimada stands. Going inside the restaurant, its minimalist design will invite you to enjoy their good food without any fuss. Its bright and clean interiors will let you know that they have a no-nonsense approach to their ramen business.
Supervised by Japanese chefs who have previously worked in popular ramen restaurants, Ramen Shimada makes sure that what they serve are all high-quality, without going overboard on their price. They serve a variety of ramen dishes here, namely Tonkotsu (pork bone), Shoyu (soy sauce), Shio (salt), Tantamen (spicy), and Mazesoba. They have toppings you can choose from such as boiled egg for an additional Php 50.
Apart from the ramen servings, they also have side dishes which are also as great as their ramen dishes. What they consider as a must-try would be their gyoza priced at Php 140, which has a juicy and tasty meat filling. If you want a filling meal, you’d be delighted to know that they generously offer free rice and rice refills when you order their ramen and gyoza.
With all their food priced under Php 300, what’s not to love about Ramen Shimada? They are currently on soft opening, so go try and fill your tummies with their tasty ramen servings!
