On mother’s day the husband brought the kids and I at Mendokoro Ramenba in Makati. He said the restaurant is inspired by the authentic ramen houses in Japan, just like what we see in travel shows and magazines and their ramen is outstanding! Since we are a family of ramen-eating monsters we should all try it. 🙂
We went there for lunch, the restaurant opens at exactly 11:30am and we arrived there at around 11:45am on a Saturday. They can only sit 21 customers at a time and when we arrived there were already 21 people seated and around 12 to 18 waiting for their turn.
We line up at the cashier station to place our order, we pay, and receive our order slip and guest number. We waited around 45 minutes to be seated. Well… good food takes a lot of time to make and if you are really serious to try it, you’ve gotta wait. 🙂
Did you know that there’s only 10 items in their menu? I read that Japanese food culture encourages specialization. In Japan, the less items in the menu the restaurant offers the better: it means the chef and his staff have dedicated themselves to making a few dishes really, really well. 🙂
Here are some of the food we tried:
Aji Tamago (P90) This is a Japanese Marinated Soft Boiled Egg. This Japanese egg will complete your ramen experience.
Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen (P410) Its broth is thick and milky white from pork marrow bones that have been simmered for long hours.
Surprise, surprise! I have a new ice-cold recipe for everyone!
This one is super easy to make and fun too. 🙂
I made it in the morning yesterday and before noon all that’s left are the popsicle sticks that I need to wash. 🙂
These sticks are special, I bought them at True Value in Trinoma for P245/ 2 pieces. I like it because it’s easy to hold and doesn’t need you to finish everything and it’s not messy too, nothing will fall out. This one is best for kids. 🙂
Basically, this recipe involves 2 ingredients only, fruit cocktail and whipped cream.
To make a whipped cream I used 1 pack of Alaska all-purpose cream, 2 tablespoons sugar and vanilla, extract if you like. Whisk just until the cream reaches stiff peaks but make sure your cream is completely chilled before you whisk it in a mixer full speed for 4-6 minutes. 🙂
Here’s the full recipe in the video!
Stay tuned for new videos every Wednesday! 🙂 Thank you for watching! 🙂
The summer heat has got me overflowing with ice dessert ideas including ice candy, slushies and popsicles!
Just a few days ago I made peach slushies and today I made peach creamsicles, it’s peaches and milkshake treat.
It’s a blockbuster hit, I can’t stop my daughter Lily from eating it all. Since it’s a bit big for her mouth I had to put in shot glass so it won’t drip on the floor everytime she gives it a lick.
This one is really easy to make, all you need is an ice-cube tray, a toothpick or anything that can hold your creamsicles. In my case I used my fancy little spoon and fork I got from a Japanese store years ago and some cocktail sticks.
The creamsicles are smooth and creamy with just the right amount of peach flavor — a not-too-sweet treat that’s the perfect way to complete a summer meal.
You have to try it!
Here’s the complete recipe of Peach Creamsicles, enjoy! 🙂
