Mr. Katsuyuki Nakata through Daisho Global Inc bought Ramen Daisho in December 2013 in the Philippines. Ramen Daisho offers authentic, mouthwatering dishes using sauces and spices from Fukuoka, Japan through Yasuhiko Funatsu, the Ramen Master of Ukokkei Ramen. The ukokkei soup base is believed by the Chinese people as medicinal. Last January 2017, Ureshu Fudo Corporation took over the management of Ramen Daisho.

It’s five years since it first came to the Philippines and served authentic ramen along Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong. I had a hard time looking for the place due to lack of visible signage. Eboy, the one who invited me, went out to pick me up cause I was in the wrong location.

Seaweed Salad (Php 220) and Kani Salad (Php 220) we both delicious and refreshing. What a great way to start a meal, but I found it a bit pricey for the quantity or serving size.

Gyoza (Php 155)
A must try on their menu. For the price one it is a deal and second - size was huge and meaty. Plus it was perfectly crispy on their outside and juicy on the inside.

They served several ramens that evening but since I had to leave early I only got to try one and boy it was scrumptious - Tonkotsu (Regular - Php 380; Large - Php 670). It's pale broth was thick and flavorful in stewed pork meat and bones with rich buttery consistency was just to die for. A thick slice of melting tender pork belly also known as cha sui and soft boiled egg or ajitsuke tamago sit on top of this elegant ramen. Topped with chopped green onions and mushroom slices.

Yakibuta Chahan (Php 260) a meal on it's own. It had bits of cha sui and veggies mixed in sticky short grained rice. I could eat this with gyoza that could be a complete meal already.

They've recently added rice meals since a number of customers are looking for some grains. The recipes for those dishes were still inspired by classic Japanese food. The serving for their Tonkatsu Curry (Php 200) was hefty and fairly affordable. Thick breaded pork cutlet covered in lightly spiced curry sauce. Katsudon (Php 200) had generous serving too. I was pleased on how thick and juicy it's chicken meat was.

Ebi Tempura (5pcs - Php 370; Tower/10pcs - Php 515) It wasn't oily and enjoyed the crispiness of its tempura breading. Fluffy coating was crunchy and was delight to take a bite on. They used bigger prawns that was plump and tender too. Great with a Yakibuta Chahan.

Ramen Daisho is certainly one of those ramen joints that I'd go back for. I love the quality of their ramen and well thought each ingredient was. Traditional techniques was used to prepare their ramens and they've expanded on rice meals to for those customers who'd prefer to eat rice over ramen. This is by far underrated restaurant needs be recognized for quality and thought put into their dishes.
