Last November 13, Yo, aka @yesyesyo and I, aka @iyassantos (how creative) went to a far, far away land called Eastwood to attend the #ramentweetup organized by @kevinyapjoco. Reasons why we braved the early holiday traffic– (1) We wanted to know if Ramen Bar really has the best noodles in town, (2) we wanted to meet our friends from the twitterverse (yes naman, parang modern mIRC eb lang!) and (3) we wanted to win in the raffle (prizes provided by Leyende , HeyWhereYou , Wright Supply Co , City Delivery , Conti’s and a lot more!).

Ok… Food! We had the R.B.S. #1 (Ramen Bar Special #1 priced at 380php). It’s a soy-infused ramen with nori, negi, tamago, naruto, kakuni and chasyu. It reminded me of the ramen Lolo Yamada (my dad’s former boss from Tokyo) used to make when we would visit him in his condo. The ramen was flavorful and filling, but was not as hot as I expected it to be. I hope the next I go there, they serve it to me piping hot-hot-hot! Yung tipong, mapapaso ang ngala-ngala ko. :p
I liked the ramen with the Kakuni Buns (180php). It’s mantao with braised (?) pork, lettuce, Japanese mayo and an unknown yummy brown sauce.
For dessert, we had the Tempura Ice Cream (120php). There’s vanilla ice cream inside the deep fried batter. And yes, of course, it’s drizzled with chocolate sauce. I liked it, but I liked John and Yoko’s Tempura Banana Split better. :p
I failed to take a picture of their menu, so here’s their board. Hehe.
So, eating good food… CHECK! Meeting tweeps… CHECK! Winning awesome prizes… CHECK! CHECK!
I won Leyende products and a Conti’s gc. Yay!
I’d like to thank everyone for the fun night (@tinatonio @jefftagle @iamjoycab @divasoria @dronthego @jploh @ryanyam @farraselda @mylenesarah @adobongsinigang @urbanfervor @chiknilla etc!)
