This Soon-to-Open Restaurant From Tokyo Introduces a Different Kind of Ramen

Have you heard of mazesoba?

(SPOT.ph) Ramen, udon, soba—with the ubiquity of Japanese food, it seems like we've seen it all. But a new restaurant from Tokyo that's coming to Manila could change all that. Menya Kokoro is opening in Uptown Bonifacio on July 12 and they're introducing a different kind of Japanese noodle dish: Mazesoba or "soupless ramen."

In a text message with SPOT.ph, Khaezel Espiritu, marketing consultant for Brotzeit (who are bringing in the restaurant to Manila), shares that Menya Kokoro is the local franchise of Kokoro Tokyo Mazesoba based in Tokyo. According to Kokoro Tokyo Mazesoba's official website, the restaurant was founded by Chef Takuma Ishikawa—who also created mazesoba from maze meaning "mix" and ramen. 

The website also describes mazesoba as "mixed noodle" or "ramen without soup" and usually has spicy hot minced pork, raw egg yolk, seaweed, green onion, bamboo shoot, minced garlic, and more on top of dry ramen noodles. They currently have branches in South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Canada, and, soon, the Philippines. We can't wait!

Menya Kokoro is opening at 3/F Uptown Mall, Uptown Bonifacio.
