Discovering Big Bowl Noodles

A few days prior to 2017 Chinese New Year, I joined some blogger friends on a walking and eating tour around Manila Chinatown and one of the restaurants that we discovered was Big Bowl Noodles. The place was along Yuchengco Street coming from Ongpin and just beside the Kwan Yin Temple.


Big Bowl Noodles is housed in an old building so don't expect some post interiors. It is just your typical canteen set-up.


Of course, as the name suggests, noodles are highlighted on the menu. I ordered the Beef Brisket Noodles. I really can't remember the price but it costs around P120 and it was served in a big bowl, literally. Good for 2-3 pax if you are ordering other dishes. Tastes okay, the noodles are freshly made and the broth flavorful. The meat itself is chewy and needs more boiling time imho. But for the price, I am definitely not complaining.


Stir-fried Seafood Noodles. Price is around P120 also. Flavorful. This was wiped-out in seconds. Or maybe we were all hungry? ;)


Siomai. Nothing fancy but tummy filling.


Here's what the resto looks inside. See that pink pipe on the right? That's where the waiting staff places the order (there's a container below that pipe) and then someone from the kitchen above pulls it up. Haha cool!

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.
