Ramen Get It: Mendokoro Ramenba Is Popping Up in Quezon City This Weekend
Their famed ramen shop's food truck is back on the road!
(SPOT.ph) The North of Manila has its (very!) fair share of stellar dining spots for sure, but if there's one restaurant we so direly wish could open in this part of the city, it's Mendokoro Ramenba—a.k.a. the ramen spot famed for its uber-rich and hearty takes on the Japanese dish, but whose other branches are more on the South end of the Metro (Makati, BGC, and Alabang). Needless to say, we were ecstatic as the ramen shop started doing occasional weekend pop-ups with their food truck in 2021, as this allowed them to cater to fans in areas relatively far from their branches, like Ortigas and Quezon City. And yup, good news: Mendokoro Ramenba will be doing a pop-up again this weekend in Quezon City!
Mendokoro Ramenba is popping up this weekend in Quezon City:
You read that right: Mendokoro's #RamenOnWheels food truck is back on the road and this weekend's stop will be at Robinsons Magnolia! You can catch them at The Garden area of the mall, where they'll be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on February 19 and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on February 20.
Come hungry as you can catch all your faves from their regular menu. The Shio (P430) is an excellent take on classic tonkotsu ramen, while the soy-sauce infused Shoyu (P460) goes for a robust umami profile (for which reason it got second place in our 2019 Top 10 Shoyu Ramen in Manila list!). Don't forget the nutty-spicy Tantanmen (P490), the seafood-studded Ebi Tonkotsu (P640), or the smoky, chashu-topped Super Chashu (P610) either! For the best experience, you'll definitely want to order up a plate of two of their signature Gyoza (P140/three pieces, P230/five pieces) to go with your ramen. You can also purchase Frozen Gyoza (P540/12 pieces) if you're looking to take the experience home.
Mendokoro Ramenba is a ramen joint from the folks behind fellow ramen restaurant Yushoken. They opened their first branch in Makati in 2014 and have commanded long lines (pre-pandemic) ever since.
Mendokoro Ramenba's pop-up will be at The Garden, Robinsons Magnolia, Aurora Boulevard corner Dona Hemady Street, Quezon City. For more information, check out Mendokoro Ramenba's Facebook page.
