Tokyo Tokyo launches its newest Ramen

Tokyo Tokyo launched its newest Ramen  a few days ago. Called Beef & Tomato Ramen,  the broth  had the perfect balance of sweet and savory .

I loved the sweetness of the corn kernels and the how the beef made the broth richer and more flavorful.

Beef & Tomato Ramen comes in two sizes- Snack P160 and regular P210

You can request for upgrade  that includes a choice of karaage or gyoza with red iced tea for an additional fee.

Overall,    Beef and Tomato Ramen came just in time for the wet season. With overcast skies and drizzle expected mostly in the afternoon and sometimes early in the morning, a piping bowl of hot ramen is just the right note to  warm the belly.

This ramen though is not your usual traditional ramen. Obviously suited to the Pinoy palate, it is a bit sweet reminiscent of  some of our much loved dishes.

The corn kernel  brings to mind  our local pochero. The broth and al dente noodles  reminded me of our Pinoy spaghetti while the thin slices of beef is sukiyaki inspired.

Did the combination work though? For me it did. I was prepared to dislike it at first sight. But after that first spoonful,  I found  myself scooping more of that broth and slurping away at those noodles non-stop

It was the familiarity  that brought it home for me. The fact that it brings to mind  dishes synonymous with happy memories made it easier for me to appreciate its flavors and textures.

I suggest you pair it with either the karaage or  gyoza and red iced tea for an additional fee.

Try it out and let me know how it turned out for you.

See you there :)
