Ichiran Ramen

Our first day in Osaka was spent exploring the city, not for culture or amusement, but just to check out shopping stuff and what not. We made our way around a Don Quijote department store (known locally as Donki) and some random arcade filled with restaurants and shops that we decided it was time. Time for us try out what the world has been screaming and clamoring for the longest time: Ichiran Ramen.  Continue reading →

Super Sushi Ramen Express

As you very well know, I am busy preparing for my trip to Japan. Tricia and I are in the final stages of itemizing each and every place we would be visiting. We’ve talked about the sights, the sounds, and most definitely the food we would be sampling. Like any good foodie and traveler, I’ve taken the liberty of doing my research beyond the usual Lonely Planet guidebook or food blogs, I’ve added a book as well to help me out.  Continue reading →

Ramen Nagi

The Black King Ramen of Ramen Nagi
For the past month the weather has always been either rainy or just plain gloomy. Perfect bed weather, the warm comforters or thick blankets, and most especially the hot soups and bowls of noodles make the rainy days a little bit cozier and warm. Just like any other day, today was just as gloomy, despite being a Muslim holiday, the day wasn’t particularly festive but it was the perfect opportunity to buy a piping hot bowl of noodle soup. Not wanting to go down south, Tricia and I decided to meet in the middle at the swanky SM Aura to try Ramen Nagi.
