(SPOT.ph) While we'd happily take any of the ramen on Ramen Nagi's regular lineup any day, we're also real suckers for their more playful limited-edition flavors—some of the notable ones they've come up with in the past are the Wild Cheese Curry King and Binagoongan King. This time around, they've partnered with grass-fed beef purveyor Bolzico Beef in their newest ramen, the Bolzico Beef Sukiyaki King.

As you can guess from the name, the Bolzico Beef Sukiyaki King (P580) takes inspiration from the Japanese beef dish known as sukiyaki—but instead of being served in a communal hot pot, it comes in ramen form. And while they had previously come out with the similar Tokyo Sukiyaki King, this version's made with tender strips of grass-fed Bolzico Beef (which is known for its juicy and flavorful qualities) along with Ramen Nagi's rich, milky tonkotsu broth and noodles. Bolzico Beef is known for its 100% grass-fed, Angus Argentinian beef, after all—and according to Ramen Nagi's Marketing Manager Lesley Chan, the collaboration goes hand in hand with "innovative food experiences" and use of quality ingredients. Completing the bowl are soft cubes of tofu that just about melt in the mouth, leeks, an egg for extra richness, and fire sauce for a touch of heat.

"The combination of the two most popular Japanese dishes, Japanese ramen and sukiyaki, already in itself creates a wonderful medley of flavors—just the right saltiness from the ramen and sweetness from the sukiyaki," says Chan. "Topping it off with strips of melt-in-your-mouth Bolzico Beef makes this Japanese fusion a [work of] perfection."
