Echoing Japanese minimalist sensibilities, Ramen Bar feels fresh and clean. You can see this in the interiors, the placemats that double as their menus and the maintained ambiance of the whole place.
If all seats were taken, the place might feel a bit cramped.
The high ceiling also gives you the feeling that this place is modern and the framed artwork adds a cute touch.
If you love to doodle or draw while waiting for your food, Ramen Bar also has the perfect placemats for you. Elbert just couldn’t resist.
Shoyu Ramen for him - P280
I like that it’s filling but not heavy on the tummy. The pork was soft and juicy and the noodles were very savory.
Spicy Karaage Ramen (mild) for her - P280
I felt that this bowl of authentic Japanese ramen would be perfect for rainy days or times when you would want to feel good and be comforted by tasty soup.
I really liked the soup base. It was a little bit salty and a little bit spicy, with some sweetness mixed in. The noodles still had that wonderful bite in the middle and were very smooth in the mouth. Ramen Bar certainly doesn’t scrimp on the ingredients too. I couldn’t really finish the whole bowl because it was that big of a serving.
The only thing that I didn’t like with this is that the chicken, which was supposed to be fried and crispy, came out soggy because it had been submerged in the soup for too long. Next time, I’ll ask for the chicken to be placed on the side or on a plate so i can eat it separately and still get the crunch.
