Keep Calm and Eat Ramen Nagi Universal Noodle
So a well known restaurant serving Japanese greats has found its way to the City of Pines.
Before they actually join the diner dash hustle and bustle of food establishments in food trip city, they invited Race, a couple of my foodie blogging friendships, and me to their pre-opening party. =) With most of us initiates to this ramen house’s offering, we were all game for a sneak peek.
As we entered the restaurant, the staff greeted us in unison and seated us at the table of our choosing. (Interesting, the chairs have baskets under them so you can stuff your things there and you won’t have to worry about them as you concentrate on your food. Nice!)
While we took a little look see of the menu, our attendant helped us personalize our orders as to how we would like our ramen bowls to be. e.g. How spicy did we want it, how thick should the soup be, do you like soft noodles, would you like extra toppings, etc. (Shoutout to Sir Dha-dha!)
In the picture book-like menu, we saw they also have side dishes, desserts such as vanilla ice cream that comes with two liquor squirts you can mix into it (Brings to mind Ms. C’s ice cream with amaretto *heehaha), and drinks like Asahi, Sapporo, and Kirin beers. (Apologies, I don’t have the menu here. Naunahan ng hiya again =b and the attendants were eager founts of info anyway so. You can also check the order slip above, there are prices included.) (UPDATE 03/14/2019: I have their menu now.)
While our orders were being prepared, we explored what was in their condiments tray. The two jars in the back have pickled little things (bean sprouts or something or other. I don’t know what the other one was; looked like strips of leaves a la pajori. Yeah, I just popped some in my mouth to have a taste. =)) ) There’s chili powder, a mixture to up the noodle’s salty flavor if we ever need it and … get this … sesame seeds.
Who’s a happy camper? Me! But of course, I worked the sesame seed grinder/dispenser. Extra nutty flavor for your noodle bowl? Why, yes, please. =D
Ramen Nagi noodle bowls are big enough that the serving could be good for two. Just in case you feel the taste of your meal is getting monotonous, there’s other foodstuff we can get our chompers on at this resto. (“,)
Gyoza – delicate pockets full of minced greens … for the most part. Nagi star salad – a refreshing bite of crunchy cabbage strips and Kewpie and a soy sauce looking dressing. Chicken karaage – ginger marinade perfectly seeped into the meat, it’s like eating a piece of chicken in pinikpikan. Nyum!
If you happen to have picked out the colored universal noodles bowl, the kind that will splish-splash on you as you sip individual noodles from end to end, Ramen Nagi also has bibs. Since Sir Dean’s shirt isn’t black (like Race’s ‘uniform’), and he’s about to attack the red king, here’s his armor. Ready, fight! *hihi
So what are the fantastic four of noodle selections at Ramen Nagi? The classic fave, butao king, is what Queen Ane and I got. The boys at our table, Race and Sir Dean ganged up on the red king. You know what that is; red for spice-h.
I was kind of torn if I would get something other than their first best seller but I needed a base, so it was Sam who went for the green king which sounds to me like the goddess ramen of this joint. *tee hee With cheese and pesto, it’s ramyon with an Italian twist. The black king, I got a glimpse of it at the other table, King Omeng’s order is black because of its squid ink base.
So goes my favorite ramen story. Now that we have our very own #FavoriteRamen from the Ramen Nagi offering (and we know better how to customize our bowls, too. Heads up, guys: Theirs is a mighty tasty yummy broth, so you can say it can get pretty intense if we have a heavy type of soup), I’m here to announce that you can also start picking out your favorite (or be reunited with your Ramen Nagi pick) tomorrow, July 27, 2017, when this newest restaurant in Baguio will be officially opening its doors to the dining public. ^^,
What timing, we have ourselves a gloomy day courtesy of tropical depression Gorio. Let’s keep calm and eat ramen. Whoo-zah!

***Thank you so much for having us. More power to all at Ramen Nagi!
