Pin It Mitsuyado collage 1
What I love about Mitsuyado? Their broths are full of flavor, I just can't get enough of them.

That and the fact that it transports me to some side street in Japan the moment I enter the place. Cobblestoned pavement, a Japanese noodle cart, and a bicycle complete the setting.

As for the food, here are my favorites...

Gyoza (P180)

One of the best in Manila, its seared wrapper breaks gently under a bite, and a proof of its oleaginous property slowly trickles down the corner of your mouth. Then you enjoy the abundance of minced pork inside, and eagerly reach out for another piece.

Mitsuyado Tsukemen
Marutoku Tsukemen (P340 regular; P380 large) and Double Cheese Tsukemen (P340 regular; P380 large)

You can opt to have your noodles served warm or cold; whichever way you choose, the nice thing about it is it's always going to come out as al dente. I figure, sometimes I think I'll go for the Marutoku especially when I'm hankering for some meat, while other times, I'll go for the Double Cheese if I wanted to get my cheese fix. While both are good, the memorable part for me is the broth. Both have this same rich, tasty flavor that almost borders on salty, yet manages to keep that little balance in check. It's meant to serve as a sort of dip for the noodles---hence the term (Tsukemen: dipping noodles)---but I'd rather slurp it away like a hot soup on a cold winter's night.

Mitsuyado Char Siu Ramen and Aji-tama
Char-siu Ramen (P360 regular; P400 large) and Aji-tama (P30)

The Char-siu, while milder in taste than the previous ones, is not to be ignored. Its savory broth is just as satisfying as the fork-tender pork slices that tease and allure. And of course, you must not pass up on the Japanese egg with a golden yolk that glimmers and glides, and leaves a trail of dangerous addiciton in its wake.

Hakata Ramen (P380)

This yellowish ramen has a thicker broth, that is totally milky and creamy. It takes several hours to make it, that's why the bowls are limited to just a few number a day. Like all the aforementioned dishes, this one is like a drug that will leave you wanting.

Strawberry Kakigori (P90), Sumiyaki Coffee Jelly with Ice Cream (P90) and Cream Anmitsu (P150)

The different cold desserts are a treat as well. A caveat: the place can get quite packed especially during dinner so better if you come before 7 PM.

I've been wanting to try Mitsuyado Sei-Men ever since I read about it in a blog. Their Double Cheese Tsukumen and Aji-tama looks yum! And with the rainy season coming in, hot ramen sounds extra delicious!

Right now, I'm hooked with the Tonkotsu ramen in Genya Tonkotsu Ramen. I especially love their Pilikara Ramen with their melt-in-your-mouth chasu and tamago. It's not for everyone though since it's quite spicy.

Dash Estefani said...

I'm fond of miso ramen and I used to get some of the best ones in Manila at Choto Stop in Little Tokyo. Sadly, the restaurant part of Choto Stop has closed (only the grocery part remains). Now I go to Ukokkei Ramen Ron for the best Tantanmen in town.

Haven't tried Mitsuyado Sei-Men's fare yet. I've been wanting to drop by but still haven't done so.

Aceline Graziel Estacio said...

I love the Stamina ramen of Tamagoya Noodle House, but I want to try Tantanmen of Mitsuyado Sei-Men. I've tried Ukokkei Ramen Ron and Izakaya Nihonbashitei but so far my favorite ramen fix is Tamagoya Noodle House. I read a lot of good review on Mitsuyado Sei-Men and I've been wanting to try it to compare it with the other ramen joints. :)

JR Custodio said...

Me and my dearest girlfriend enjoy eating Shoyu Ramen. When I dined at Mitsuyado Sei-Men, I liked and enjoyed Tsukumen, which is new to me. For my ramen fix, my top three in no specific ranking are Hokkaido Ramen Santouka,Kenji Tei Ramen House and Mitsuyado Sei-Men. I just started to dine at Mitsuyado Sei-Men and so far I am amazed by the ambiance of the restaurant.
