There's a new ramen place in Molito, Alabang called Ramen Yushoken.
People ask me if it's worth the toll fee on Skyway. Well, let's just say my friend Jeff had dinner here last night and he drove all the way here again tonight just so his beloved wife Chiz could try the noodles.
Jeff lost 125 lbs. on Cohen and allows himself one rich meal a week only.
And Yushoken is that.
I arrived a bit earlier and had some gyoza and white ale with one of the owners, Ryan.
Hitachino Nest White Ale, blast chilled for me by Elbert,
As soon as Chiz sat down, we over-ordered.
Tantan-men - the noodles cradling the tasty morsels of meat are perfectly al dente,
the soup nutty and creamy with just the right amount of heat to keep things exciting
Tonkotsu Tsukemen - this is traditional tonkotsu ramen, deconstructed.
You take some noodles, dip them into the pork broth, and then slurp. Repeat.
Yushoken makes their noodles in house. They are firm and bouncy, the way I like 'em.
And until now I cannot forget the effect my first spoonful had on me. Intensely porky with meltingly
tender chasiu, this broth's got a lot of soul and holds on to each strand of tsukemen noodle
like there is no tomorrow.
Aji Tamago - the picture says it all
Random stuff: I like that the spoon hooks onto the bowl nicely and keeps the contents of my broth
orderly. I'm OC like that.
We finished an order of gyoza, tantan-men, tonkotsu tsukemen, 2 aji tamagos, karaage and chahan.
Chiz and I, we are the undefeated champions.
There's no dessert on Yushoken's menu. Luckily, Chiz brought a chocolate chip walnut cookie
that she baked herself. "It's my best cookie yet," she proudly announced. I had this after the gyoza
and before all the noodles. Yum.
Next time I'm gonna try the Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen
Congratulations, Ryan and Elbert! :)
