Ippudo: Gyokai Tonkotsu, Pork Bun, and more!

Ippudo Philippines

With the gaining popularity of ramen in the Philippines comes Ippudo being part of the checklist for the best ramen places to try. And here I am, having my first shot at Ippudo starting with their gyoza and buns, and their limited edition Gyokai Tonkotsu!

Hakata Style Gyoza (195Php)
Original pan-fried dumplings. An Ippudo classic!
Hakata Style Gyoza

I am quite not sure how a Hakata Style Gyoza is different from the other gyoza's I've tried. But this is good, classic, and will always be my default sides for ramen.

Fried Chicken and Pork Buns

Pork Bun (125Php)
An all time favorite! Steamed bun with juicy braised pork belly and Ippudo's original sauce
Pork Bun

It's the famous Pork Bun! I love the sauce and how it is glazed. The pork belly is oh-so soft, but you can also feel the juicy fats. Great that it is paired with the bun to balance it out.

Fried Chicken Bun (125Php)
Ippudo's signature steamed bun with glazed crunchy chicken fillet, shredded cabbage and Japanese mayonnaise

They say the Pork Bun is the more popular choice but I had the Fried Chicken Bun for a change. I would say it is equally good and juicy, but it is crunchy  and thicker as well.

Gyokai Tonkotsu (490Php)
Ippudo's signature blend of tonkotsu and creamy chicken broth with a fusion of flavorful bonito and shoyu, seasoned with yuzukosyo pepper for a slight kick. Served with thick and wavy noodles, topped with bamboo shoots, half tamago, nori, and slices of chasyu
Gyokai Tonkotsu

Hear ye, hear ye! The best ramen I've tried so far... Gyokai Tonkotsu. I've tried different types of ramen, different ramen places, varied ingredients, but this has won my heart so far. The key ingredient that made it stood out among the rest -- it's the broth! It's like chicken, pork, and seafood flavors fused into one unimaginable yet harmonized soup. Never mind the thick wavy noodles that remind me of instant noodles. It's all about the broth, while the thin tender pork slices are added bonus to the already good meal.

Mango Shake (115Php)

So that was my first visit at Ippudo. The ramen was a "wow!" and so I look forward to the other signature ramen's or limited edition dishes from this famous Japanese restaurant.
