They say that first impressions last. Well, there’s one place we just visited with WIP that made quite an impression the moment we arrived. Without a doubt, Saiko No Ramen is one of the restaurants that left a good first impression on the WIP team because they have one of the warmest welcome, very accommodating, neat and well-prepared staff.
The owner started introducing herself and I really thought that one of the owners is Japanese considering the menu range (we will get there later) but they were actually born and raised Filipino owners so having a Ramen house is out of their love for Japanese food. Since they love Japanese food why don’t they just make a ramen house? And that is just what they did, talk about doing what you love. Another fact: Saiko No means THE BEST.
The place is not as big as the other restaurants in terms of size but it’s cozy and intimate so you’ll really have quality time with your family and friends while dining.
After getting to know one of the owners and their wonderful staff, let me give you a glimpse of my favorite part of this experience (as always) THE FOOD!
First I had the liberty to check out their menu and boy oh boy, I’m not exaggerating it but their menu is one of the most variations and selections I’ve seen in quite a while. There are over a hundred types dishes from appetizers to main dishes and noodles in the menu.
Okay so let me give you a better breakdown of the food menu that you can try at Saiko No Ramen House.
Since it is originally a ramen house, you’d love it here because you can choose from 17 different Ramen choices. Also, they have over 40 kinds of maki, sushi and sashimi. One of my favorites is their Saiko no special maki (prepared with sushi rice and tempura) and I actually came back a day after the feature to get one on the go. It’s a really a must try! Of course, there is also teppanyaki (they have chicken, pork, beef, fish, seafood). And completing the Japanese menu is their Donburi (Japanese rice bowls). Of their donburi selections, I like gyudon the most. It’s really delicious and the beef topping is flavorful. But if you prefer light meals they also have Fried Noodles (Yakisoba and Yaki Udon) or if you’re health conscious, fret not, they do have vegetable based dishes.
Finally, if you go there with a bunch of people, you can choose from their platters selection and Saiko No Mixed Mori (large serving). And there is no better way to end your gastronomic journey with Saiko No Ramen than to try their mixed fruits surprise for dessert.
Oh and did I tell you, they also offer some Korean dishes (bulgogi, stir-fried spicy pork, jjampong, Spicy rice cake with veggie and noodles, and Korean rice meals with toppings).
Wait there’s more, if you’re a big eater, you can just avail of their unlimited tempura (rice, side dishes, dips and a glass of iced tea included) for only 269 pesos, Unlimited Samgyeopsal for only 299 or unlimited Ramen for only 299, now that’s I call covering all the bases for good measure.
Remembering all these just made me hungry so I’m going to end my story right here and probably go there and chow down. I’d love to tell you more but it’s better if you go to Saiko No Ramen and try it for yourself and see what I mean.
