Fresh from our honeymoon as a newlywed couple, Soshi and I were craving for something Japanese. Luckily we got an invite from Ramen Cool West Ave to try out their dishes.
Ramen Cool is a simple Japanese restaurant that offers a variety of Japanese dishes like rolls, sushi, sashimi, donburi, and ramen. Currently, they have 3 branches all across the Metro. Their interiors and ambiance are comparable to the clean and minimalistic approach of the Japanese.
Here’s the breakdown of the items we ordered at that time:
Soshi is a Ramen monster so we wouldn’t miss trying out their ramen. They have quite a selection, but since he is a picky eater, we ordered the Pork Shoyu Ramen. Their Ramen are very affordable and big enough to share.
Whenever we order ramen, we usually pair it up with a gyoza, so we try their pan-fried gyoza. It is not as light as compared to other Japanese gyozas, for their gyozas are meaty and quite filling.
As a complimentary treat, we were given the Sweet Salmon Summer roll to indulge in. I loved this roll because it was savory and sweet at the same time. It is a simple cucumber roll topped with flakes of salmon, and mangoes, drizzled with sweet Japanese mayo and topped with savory bits of wonder (I forgot what they are called).
Thank you Ramen Cool for inviting us to dine in your West Ave branch. We enjoyed our experience. If you are looking for simple and affordable Japanese dishes, Ramen Cool is your best bet. Do not expect something similar to the Japanese restaurant chains that were brought here. Their dishes were adjusted to satiate the Filipino palate.
