Ramen Cool: Cool Pricing for Hefty Ramen Servings in Kapitolyo

July 16, 2014 Kapitolyo, Pasig, Philippines

Kapitolyo really has a lot of dining options.  This time we're out to try some ramen at Ramen Cool.

We've heard a lot of raves about this huge ramen house.  Unlike other restaurants in Kapitolyo, this is no hole-in-a-wall but a really nice, spacious and cozy full-blown restaurant.  It even has a parking area.  But, still not enough due to the numerous diners that are rushing in during peak hours.

It's got bright lights and interiors with savy Modern Japanese influences.  There are more private rooms too.

Food
red and orange roll
Red and Orange Roll (235 php)
The Red and Orange Roll is a maki with fresh tuna and salmon sashimi  and crabsticks.  The size is huge.


gyoza
Gyoza (115 php/5 pieces)
The Gyoza is plump and juicy.  For the price, it's a bargain. 



rcool ramen
RCool Ramen (260 php)
The RCool Ramen is a big bowl of chashu ramen.  The egg is over-cooked.  The chashu was tender but it also had a lot of fats.  The ramen broth is very light.  The noodles were not too soft and not chewy enough to enjoy.

Update (December 2016): Revisited so read about the improvement here.


nabeyaki ramen
Nabeyaki Ramen (235 php)
The Nabeyaki Ramen is a big bowl of nabe ramen with tempura shrimp, seafood, egg, carrots, onions and leeks.  The flavor was too light for me.  I didn't like it. =(
 
miso ramen
Miso Ramen (175 php)
The Miso Ramen is a big bowlful of miso ramen with butter, corn, chashu, crabstick and egg.  Again, the egg is over-cooked.  This has a nice miso blend.  This is richer in terms of flavor compared to the other ones we ordered.


tempura ramen
Tempura Ramen (195 php)
The Tempura Ramen has a mild sweet broth with tempura shrimp and eggplant.  My little sister enjoyed this.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
The cool things about Ramen Cool are the affordable pricing for their hefty ramen servings (ladies can share) and great ambiance.  But, their ramen felt lacking in terms of substance.  The broth base was dull and lacking in flavor.  It felt as if they skipped the vital boiling preparation of making a ramen broth and relied heavily on the seasoning (i.e. soy sauce, miso etc.)  Their noodles is also one of the worst I've encountered.
