As soon as you step in Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen, you will instantly be transported to Japan. The warm greeting of every staff, the intricate decor, just everything resonates modern Japanese dining. Though I wish the floor area to be bigger so they could accommodate more ramen hungry patrons.

Let's review their food:

1. Chicken Karaage - I super enjoyed their karaage. These golden fried wonders were served in precise temperature, not too hot and definitely not cold, and just the right balance of flavor that will burst in your mouth with accompaniment of tender chicken meat with very little to no fat. PRICE: ₱180 ~ $3.3

2. Potato Croquette - These are rolls made of, you guessed it, potatoes! They were a little crunchy on the outside, soft and tasty on the inside. Make sure you also eat them after being served for the best quality and flavor. Kids and kids at heart will love this! PRICE: ₱160 ~ $3

3. Original Gyoza - Gyozas are Japanese stuffed wonton wrappers. The description itself makes me want to try it already haha! But true to what Kris Aquino said on her Kris TV feature, Ikkoryu's gyozas are really good - they're meaty, palatable, and very appetizing! unlike other gyozas that are bland and basic. super worth your money. (TV feature at the end of this page). PRICE: ₱150 ~ $2.8

4. Ajitama Tonkotsu (Ikkoryu's original hearty Tonkotsu ramen garnished with Chashu, green onion, bamboo shoots, wood ear and dried seaweed topped with special half-boiled egg that's fully marinated with a special blended soy sauce base) - The very first thing I noticed is the rich tonkotsu broth (simmered pork marrow cooked for hours) that's cooked for hours which brought out extraordinary flavors not found in all ramen houses in Manila. There's that distinct taste from the rich broth you will crave for. Not too salty, just the right seasoning you can adjust to your liking. I also liked the half boiled egg that was marinated with their special soy sauce. I thought it was Ajitama Tonkotsu's perfect pair. PRICE: ₱380 ~ $7.1

5. Miso Tonkotsu - (Ikkoryu's original hearty Tonkotsu ramen with special blended quality Miso paste garnished with Chashu, green onion, bamboo shoots, wood ear and dried seaweed) - The rich tonkotsu broth mixed with Miso paste (traditional Japanese seasoning) enhanced the overall flavor and aroma of the ramen bowl. Miso paste is generally salty because the main ingredient is fermented soya beans, but for me it wasn't too overpowering. Just the right amount for a pleasurable finish. PRICE: ₱380 ~ $7.1

6. Black Garlic Tonkotsu - (Ikkoryu's original hearty Tonkotsu ramen with special special roast garlic oil garnished with Chashu, green onion, bamboo shoots, wood ear and dried seaweed) - This special broth is obviously for all garlic lovers out there. The garlicky taste was very strong, and if you want to sample on a different and unique tonkotsu broth, this is a must try. PRICE: ₱380 ~ $7.1

7. Aburi Chashu Tonkotsu - (Ikkoryu's original hearty Tonkotsu ramen garnished with generous slices of Aburi Chashu, green onion, bamboo shoots, wood ear and dried seaweed) - Aburi means flame seared. No wonder this is their best-seller. The flame seared chashu had a little smokey/grilled taste that Filipinos very much love. PRICE: ₱400 ~ $7.5

Overall, Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen is a very recommendable ramen restaurant. Two thumbs up!

Located on High Street in BGC you will often find a line at the door, it is that popular. So we had to try and went there for a late lunch. You line up and then order your noodles that are finished up in front of you, then one can add toppings like tonkatsu, tempura etc, overall very efficient principle, fast and fresh. The food is very affordable and taste very authentic, great value and true Japanese experience.

I went to try their ramen in Bonifacio High Street branch. Since some of my friends literally told me that its one of the best ramen so far. Tried their Ajitama Tonkatsu and it didn’t disappoint me. Its really good and the price is cheaper compared to other ramen restaurants. But the restaurant is small and somewhat dark, maybe its because of the red colored lights that they have.

Japanese or not??? Food was bland. Not recommended. A friend just took a few days to off from work to visit us and we took him here. He loves Japanese food and he actually didn't like it. Saaaaad.

I love Ramen! and this is so far the only Ramen shop I tried that is comparable to the ones served in Japan. The only thing I don't like is that the noodles changed after sometime. When this place was recently opened, the noodles is good but it changed to a more locally made one. Also a warning tip! Don't eat at later hours as the soup base is a bit salty compared to the ones served on mid day.
