(SPOT.ph) Noodle fans will find a new reason to go slurp-happy this year. Moshi Koshi Noodle Boss on Shaw Boulevard, which opened in December 2011, joins the throng of new ramen joints and dishes out satisfying steaming hot bowls of savory or buttery broth with springy noodles, without the frills.
A casual, fastfood-style noodle house, Moshi Koshi's menu also lists soba (buckwheat flour noodles), udon (squarish and flat) and noodles from the pan (yakisoba and yakiudon). The ramen bowls, however, are one of the most-ordered menu items at Moshi Koshi, says Moshi Koshi’s Janice Obcena. The ramen list includes their popular savory bowl of Miso ramen (P220), Shoyu ramen with tender cuts of pork (P185), Shio (P180), and Shio Butter Corn (P195). The bowls all have springy noodles swimming in fragrant broth, made fresh daily to get the noodles into a "koshi" state-tender, firm and a bit chewy. The bowls are also served to your table quite fast, taking into account that the recommended time to finish off a bowl should be less than ten minutes, before the noodles get too soggy.
Big meal eaters will like their bento boxes (starts at P180), a full meal in itself with miso soup, rice, four sidings and your choice of meat: chicken teriyaki, kara-age, or shogayaki (pork sautéed with ginger). Other rice meal options include the donburi bowls and curry meals that have mild spicy flavors, and Moshi Koshi's green tea and coffee-flavored ice cream lets you end a noodle-filled meal on a sweet note.
