Sunday Summary of Food Reviews and Spring Cleaning Blogs.

I’ve hope to make a mark on a good comeback. This week, I have unlocked a new achievement as I have posted 5 times, more than I have ever did (in a week) since I started this blog. And for me, that’s a BIG step towards my goal of “writing myself out there.”

Last Monday, I began my comeback with a review of the pizza chain, Project Pie, and its innovative way of serving customers something new and different with every order. Check it out to find out how!

Mine <3. I came prepared and had all the toppings I wanted. But I was kind of shy to ask for more because the long line is a pressure to bear with. You have to say everything fast and concise when you have about 20 more people behind you, waiting in line.

2 days later, I reviewed Ajisen Ramen, my first take into the domain of the ramen-addicts, and it turned out really gooood. I wonder if this sudden urge of mine to try as many ramen houses is good for my health?

Next was FINALLY getting rid of my old theme and theme headers. Not only that, I also edited my About Me page, my side bars, my footers, and my customized menu! I must say, a heavy burden was lifted off my shoulders when I did the “spring cleaning” of my blog. “Write Yourself Out There” was born properly, this time. To those who are bewildered by my title, this post will explain why I’ve chosen this particular set of words.

Can you believe this was an accidental shot?!

Then my hankering for steaks wormed it’s way into my blog. I just had to make another review of yet another good restaurant. Everything at Steak was a favorite to-go place for…everyone I know actually. So I don’t regret writing many good words about this one 🙂

Medium rare. Brown on the outside, red on the center.

Not even 24 hours later, I’ve created another post (yes, my hands are really itching to keep typing) to introduce the weekly and monthly features I’ve set up for this blog! I am really excited about this, and so I hope good things would come through this features 🙂

It’s a Ramen kind of day – Ajisen Ramen (Sto. Domingo/Banawe)

Ahh, the ramen. One of the most famous staple food of the Japanese people. Next to the yogurt, milk tea, Belgian waffles and cronuts, the ramen has been making its way to many Filipino stomachs. Japanese Ramen is becoming quite a fad, not only to food enthusiasts, but to many business owners as well.

Of course, when it comes to culinary cultures, authenticity is very important. That’s why a lot of ramen “houses” has been sprouting all over the metro. Ajisen Ramen is the one of first ones within miles in the Sto. Domingo/Banawe area in Quezon City.

The place was spacious and it had a good ambiance about it. However, Renz and I always come at an afternoon time so its rare for us to chance upon the lunch or dinner crowd.

Upon being led to a table, a waitress will ask about your preference of tea. Whether you like it hot or cold. I’m not one for cold tea when trying to have authentic Asian food so I always go for the hot tea (or maybe its just the chinita in me lol).

❤  that its matcha tea.

They offer a great deal of ramen choices and a wide range of different Japanese dishes. But between Renz and I, we could only order so much. Perhaps on our next visit 🙂

I hope their menu can provide you an idea of what to order here :)

Now, for what every reader has been waiting for when reading food reviews; the actual food pics!

Ajisen Ramen P265. This is their signature ramen.

I found this to be very delicious because the soup was really rich. Though I added a little spice just to satiate my palate.

When you feel like your Ajisen Ramen is a bit lacking in the pork bbq department, then this is the bowl for you. It adds 4 more pork bbq topping.

Seafood Ramen P305. Feeling a bit heavy from all the red meat? Then its the seafood ramen for you!

The seafood ramen was good, but I found it to be a bit “malansa” for my taste. But the soup has a different taste from the Ajisen. So I’m thinking maybe it had a different soup base? Anyway, the soup saved the dish for me.

Beef Teppanyaki Ramen P395. Very goooood!

Renz declared this one to be the best of them all. Even though it didn’t have a lot of toppings except for the egg and the imported beef steak, this was definitely his favorite.

Kani Sarada P138. Appetizer to the ravenous.

Their kani salad was nothing special, but if you want to have some appetizers first and would like to stick within a budget, then this is for you.

To summarize, yes. I would surely comeback to Ajisen Ramen! I want to try some of their other dishes and whatnot. Their ramen is one of the best I’ve tasted so far. Just thinking of their rich ajisen soup base and fresh noodles is making me salivate right now!

Only, try to come when there’s fewer people because they can be quite understaffed. When we were in the middle of the meal, about 3-4 more groups of people came in and they only had about 2 waitresses working. Their prices are quite high though reasonable, so if you want to stay within a budget, keep in mind that they also have service charge.
