Ippudo Philippines has introduced a new kind of ramen that will excite your taste buds: the Miso Akamaru (Php 450), a limited-time offering starting April 15, 2015.
What makes this ramen different from the classics is the thick and wavy noodles, the flavorful combination of 3 types of miso with Ippudo's signature tonkotsu broth with a slice of torched rolled chashu.
Miso Akamaru is also topped with sansio ground pork, fresh bean sprouts, and green cabbage, added with koyu and Ippudo's red Akamaru miso for a bit of a spicy garlic kick.
This is the type of ramen I'd love to have over and over, the spiciness is tolerable to my tastebuds, with the texture and flavor from the torched chashu taking it to the next level.
Along with the new ramen, Ippudo also added two new side dishes: the Deep-Fried Gyoza (Php 210) and the Fried Chicken Bun (Php 100).
The Deep-Fried Gyoza is the crunchy version of the Ippudo classic, topped with spicy mayo, Negi, and chili powder on shredded cabbage. I love the hint of the spicy mayo with the gyoza, indeed a delicious sidekick for ramen.
My favorite is the Fried Chicken Bun, Ippudo's signature steamed bun with glazed chicken fillet, shredded cabbage, and Japanese mayo.

I love the crunch and a bit of saltiness in each bite. It greatly complements the spicy and garlicky kick of the Miso Akamaru.
Also, I highly recommended my other two favorite Ippudo sides: the Goma Q (Php 140) and the Dashimaki Tamago with Mentaiko Mayo (Php 150).
