Ramen Tonkatsu Set - this comes with your choice of ramen, pork tonkatsu, rice, fresh fruits and tea. I chose the Shiro ramen to go with this set; which is the usual ramen broth made of boiling pork and other what-nots. The soup was flavorful but quite salty to my liking. Though their egg noodles are made of chef’s selected flour, mixed properly according to climate and seasons to serve the best noodles and it did not disappoint. The pork tonkatsu was also good, the meat was tender and had very light flaky breading. The set came with cabbage salad though this is not unlimited unlike in other restos. I also love the yellow wasabi that came with it which I used for my sushi rolls instead of the green one. For the price of this set, I believe it's worth it.
Salmon Roll - I am big fan of salmon and I love this as well. This took a bit late to be served, but I'm hoping the reason is that they have made it fresh and isn't already prepped hours before. I like the small drop of Japanese mayo on top of it for some burst of flavor in my mouth while eating them.
Teriyaki Pork Roll - I usually eat teriyaki as a rice dish; this is the first time I've eaten this variation of sushi and I must admit that I like it. This rolls had a fair balance of saltiness and sweetness in them. I didn't use the sauce at all so I can enjoy their flavor as it is. Definitely a must try if you're dining at ramen Kuroda.
We enjoyed dining here and I'm glad that the raves about this place is true. I am not super blown away but was very satisfied. My friend loved it too and he was surprised at how affordable our dinner was. He was telling me about this other restaurant that he went to the other night and he spent around 2,500 pesos for only a couple of items and mostly sushi rolls. Thanks brother for this sumptuous dinner!
The service was ok but I found it a bit slow, which was ok because we weren't in a hurry. What I want to point out is how their prices are very affordable compared to other ramen houses. The quality and serving of the food in relation to the price points are very sensible. Since I just work nearby, I think I will be visiting Ramen Kuroda often.
