Ramen Daisho in Makati Highlights Authentic and Traditional Ramen
With a home branch in Shaw Boulevard, Ramen Daisho opens its doors anew to the public in Assembly Grounds at The Rise, Makati.
This new branch adds a little touch of modernity to their original look while still sticking to its traditional culinary roots.
Ramen Daisho first came to the Philippines in 2013 in Shaw Boulevard and has since delivered authentic Japanese flavors to the public.
Six years later, Ramen Daisho finally opened a branch in Assembly Grounds to bring its well-loved ramen closer to the southern part of the Metro.
For starters, try their California Maki (Php 255). This crowd-favorite is a mainstay at most Japanese restaurants, and Ramen Daisho is no exception.

If you’re not a fan of the rolls, you can always try Gyoza (Php 155). You’ll love the burst of flavors from these fried dumplings, providing the ideal introduction for the meal to come.

For seafood lovers, the Ebi Tempura Tower (Php 515) will surely excite you with its 10-piece ebi or shrimp tempura. Don’t forget to snap a photo of it before you dig in!

Ramen Daisho’s Garlic Abura-men (Php 380) is also worth noting. This soupless ramen is served with special soy sauce (shouyu) and is topped with a slice of pork chashu, ajitama or seasoned ramen eggs, and a variety of vegetables.
It’s a great switch up to your traditional ramen!

When at Ramen Daisho, you wouldn’t want to miss out on their Tonkotsu Ramen (Php 380).
Ramen, of course, is something that Ramen Daisho is known for but what sets their Tonkotsu Ramen apart from other restaurants in the area is the overall lightness and creaminess of the dish.

When it comes to the interior, the wall paintings will surely catch your attention. You’ll find that cranes are at the centerpiece of the artwork—and for good reason as well.
Daisho translates to “fly high,” and this is represented by the cranes, which are also important symbols of good fortune and longevity in Japanese culture.
In all—apart from their delicious eats—you’ll find that Ramen Daisho poses a homey atmosphere that invites you to visit them often.
