Are you ready for the best Ramen in town?

Last March 3, 2018, Hakata Ikkousha - the ramen franchise from Fukuoka, Japan- opened Ikkousha Ramen, its first Metro Manila branch; at the Upper Ground Flr. Expansion Wing of the Festival Mall Alabang, Muntinlupa City. This is the second Ikkousha branch in the Philippines (the first was in Cebu). 

Two soft opening days, during which 100 bowls of ramen were served daily, were held on the 26th and 27th of February, while 300 bowls were served on March 3rd. The core of Ikkousha’s menu is the tonkotsu ramen, also known as Hakata ramen, after the place in Fukuoka City known for this ramen style. Its defining characteristic is its tonkotsu broth, which is made by simmering pork bones for many hours. The result is a thick, creamy soup base – almost milky in its consistency and color – that is flavorful as well as rich in collagen. 

Furthermore, the noodles served in Ikkousha branches are produced in Ikkousha’s own noodle factory. Each bowl of ramen is topped with carefully seasoned and tender slices of cha-shu (braised pork). The ramen comes in several varieties: the classic tonkotsu; tonkotsu black, which has mayu (black garlic oil) for a more intense flavor; God Fire, the spicy variant that comes in four spice levels; and shio tonkotsu, which combines tonkotsu and shio (salt) broth for a lighter-bodied soup base.

Present at the long-awaited launch were the founder of the Hakata Ikkousha Ramen franchise, Kousuke Yoshimura; Ikkousha Manila owners Marivic (CEO) and Shigehiro Tomoda; Ikkousha Global international manager Suki Yiu; as well as other Ikkousha international representatives, suppliers, and members of the media.

The Southern peeps in Metro Manila are lucky enough to have Ikkousha Ramen nearby. They get an easy access to the best Ramen in town.
