Ippudo Philippines has officially opened its 3rd branch in Manila, at the newly-opened Uptown Mall at BGC last Friday, May 20. But before that, I got a chance to drop by the newest Ippudo branch last Wednesday.
Ippudo BGC has more than 100-seating capacity. The high ceilings and the minimalist interiors makes the restaurant feel very spacious.
For this visit, I had two of my favorite Ippudo side dishes, the Fried Chicken Bun (Php 125) and the Deep-Fried Gyoza (Php 220).

For my ramen bowl, I ordered my favorite the Shiromaru Motoaji Special (Php 490).
The Shiromaru Motoaji Special is Ippudo's original tonkotsu broth with soft boiled egg, pork belly and seaweed. I'm a huge fan of this Ippudo classic that this comes to mind whenever I'm craving for ramen. I highly suggest you order this with very hard noodles.
For dessert, I was served the Black Sesame Ice Cream (Php 160).

The Black Sesame Ice Cream is served with red bean paste and wafers, a lovely way to end a delicious meal.
Ippudo will always be one of the best ramen places in the metro for me. I can't wait to go back and satisfy my ramen cravings, especially now that rainy season is almost here. <3
Thanks to Ippudo Philippines for having us.
