This New Kit Proves Cheese and Ramen Are a Match Made in Heaven
You can get it delivered, of course.
(SPOT.ph) Cheese on noodles may be more commonly associated with Italian cuisine, but it hasn’t stopped the Japanese from experimenting with it on their own—and with surprisingly great results. Case in point: Ramen Nagi’s new Cheesy Tsukemen (P980/good for two). It’s a tsukemen (a.k.a. dipping ramen) dish with Ramen Nagi’s signature noodles topped with fire sauce and parmesan cheese, and served with chashu, vegetables, and a rich soup made with fish, pork, and chicken. Dip the noodles into the thick broth and slurp away—you’ll see how the creamy, nutty cheese works with the umami flavors of the meat.
The Cheesy Tsukemen is available for orders through Ramen Nagi’s website, and they deliver around Metro Manila. There’s an order cut-off of 5 p.m. from Monday to Saturday; any orders beyond that will be processed the next day. Just add the items of your choice and check out, then pay via Paypal, credit or debit card, or cash on delivery.
You can also get other ramen kits, such as the Butao King (P790/good for two) and Red King (P900/good for two). Of course, no ramen meal is complete without the sides, and Ramen Nagi’s website also carries frozen Gyoza (P800/good for six) and Chicken Karaage (P750/good for four) to complete the experience. The latter got the fourth spot on our Top 10 Chicken Karaage list for its distinctly gingery taste and crunchy, juicy body.
Ramen Nagi is a Japanese ramen chain founded by Chef Ikuta Satoshi in 2004. They arrived in the Philippines in 2013, bringing with them their four signature ramen variants which have won our stomachs over. They’re also known for coming up with special ramen flavors called “limited kings”—just some of their previous creations are the Wild Cheese Curry King and Binagoongan King.
