Not another ramen place!
There are more than enough great ramen place all over Metro Manila (and even the whole archipelago) but there's nothing like a specialty place like Marudori. Think chicken, chicken, and chicken. Yum!
Marudori is one of the restaurants that opened when almost the whole world was still in partial lockdown due to the pandemic. But it is easy to spot a good resto when you see it full of diners and a waiting line.
Shio Paitan. A clean tasting broth with perfect al dente noodles. This is our default ramen order when it's hard to choose from the menu.
Then there's my favorite Tantanmen. Super rich and spicy broth with bits of seasoned ground chicken, and just the right amount of vegetable. Have a glass of water within reach if you're not that fond of spicy food. But this is a must-try, okay?
Yuzu is a refreshing cold ramen. I love how the noodles are separately served with the broth. Broth has a lighter texture as compared with the other ramen on the menu.
Hiyashi Chuka Ramen is another favorite. This ramen is served cold but with no broth. The surprise is in the noodles which is made from spinach. Yum!
I'm saving the best for last. Gyoza! This is not your usual gyoza though. This is more like xiao long bao. The first time we ate at Marudori, the gyoza reminds me greatly of pan-fried buns from Cheung King Kee in Hong Kong. My daughter is so in-love with Marudori's gyoza and she orders this always whenever we dine-in.
