Ip­pudo

Philippine Tatler Best Restaurants - - JAPANESE -

WHY GO

The cen­tralised kitchens ded­i­cated to home-made pulled noo­dles and savoury bone-based broth have al­ways been the strong suit of Ip­pudo’s com­fort­ably out­fit­ted Manila out­lets, as­sur­ing the as­pect of qual­ity con­trol is max­imised. Of­fer­ing a spectrum of ra­men dishes from dif­fer­ent re­gions of Ja­pan, meals here can range from light to thor­oughly hearty.

TATLER TIPS

The best-selling Aka­maru Shi­naji uses the rich flavour of gar­lic to its ad­van­tage against the creami­ness of the broth. For those seek­ing spice, try the Karaka-men con­sists of the orig­i­nal broth backed by spe­cial spicy miso and ground pork. When asked about the firm­ness of the noo­dles, the pre­ferred treat­ment is very hard to give a sense of the dif­fer­ent tex­tures within the dish. For lighter fare, the clas­sic style gy­oza and the Ipuddo pork bun make a time-pressed lunch sat­is­fy­ing.
