  • Ramen Yushoken in Alabang: A Crowd-Favorite Ramen Shop in the South
  • You’ll be surprised by how Ramen Yushoken in Molito, Alabang gets packed the moment they opened their store for the day. It’s as if right from the start, diners already know what to order, and they just can’t get enough of it!

    Originating from Tokyo’s Higashi-Ikebukuro Taishoken, this ramen shop has branched out to Alabang and Cebu.

    It stands out as one of the most notable ramen destinations in the Philippines for its carefully crafted homemade pork bone base, simmered for about 12 hours, that make up their ramen goodness! The noodles, also made in-house, are somewhat thicker, complementing the rich, flavorful soup perfectly.

    Their best-sellers are Shoyu or soy sauce-based ramen and TanTanMen, a spicy bowl of ramen. However, exploring other lesser known dishes might also be worth the try!

    Take the Karai Maze Soba for instance. It uses Ramen Yushoken’s famous Shoyu, served with roasted chashu bits and vegetables. It’s also topped with raw egg for that added texture.

    Ramen aside, never leave the restaurant without trying their mouthwatering Gyoza. Their gyoza is comprised of almost 20 ingredients that create a perfect balance of flavors. It’s undoubtedly a favorite among customers as it’s perfect to pair with ramen bowls.

    Another must-try is the famous Karaage, which is loved by both kids and adults. It’s deep fried until golden brown, and the meatiness will seriously linger in your mouth.

    Finally, for rice-lovers, sample their Chahan or Japanese fried rice! It’s already flavorful as it is, but you can also pair it with karaage or gyoza, and even ramen.

    There are also dishes off-the-menu that you could try to spice up your ramen game. Bonito Tsukemen is not in the menu, and yet everyone keeps coming back for more. The noodles are served cold, sipping the flavors of the nori flakes on top. Fun part? You have to dip the noodles into the bowl.

    Another one is the Ebi Shio, which is similar to their popular Shio, but uses ebi oil made from roasted shrimp heads instead of leek oil. It has that certain creamy consistency to it that you’ll absolutely love.

    Ramen Yushoken ensures customers that they serve the best, preparing everything from gyoza wrappers to noodles right before they open in the morning. They do live up to the word yushoken, which literally translates to “House of Ramen Champions.”

    Compared to its sister restaurant Mendokoro Ramenba, which operates in Makati and BGC in Taguig, Yushoken functions as a full-service restaurant, while the latter has a full bar format.

    All Ramen Yushoken branches only close half a day for the whole year for their staff Christmas party—so expect them to be open even on holidays! You may even walk in a minute before closing time, and they will still happily serve you.
