Genki Tonkotsu Ramen ♥ ♥ ♥


Even before all this ramen craze began, this humble, low-profile shop along Macapagal has been serving good tonkotsu ramen.

Genki Tonkotsu Ramen



The menu is simple with four kinds of ramen made with special sauce and pork bone broth that is boiled for over three-fourths of a day.

It also has the usual ramen appetizer pairings like:

We tried three of the four ramen varieties - shio (salt), shoyu (soy), and pirikara (spicy). Skipped the Yasai Ramen because, well, vegetables are boring! :P

We ordered everything "special," which means every bowl came with chasiu, negi, nori, kikurage, and aji tamago.

The Japanese-style eggs were perfectly done, with yolks thick, runny and gooey.

And the tonkotsu broth did taste like what the menu promised it to be - boiled for over 18 hours.

It was creamy, porky, sticky, velvety.

Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen Special



I didn't quite like the spicy variant. It tasted so Chinese.

So I guess it was not really a surprise to see that Genki also has a few Chinese dishes in their menu like siomai, shrimp siomai, spring rolls, etc. etc.

We thought it was funny, but couldn't resist an order of...
