Eating ramen will never be complete without a side dish, may it be gyoza, karaage, or a pork bun. Ippudo made the ramen experience more enjoyable by introducing new ramen sidekicks with Ippudo Matsuri!

I wouldn't miss on the two classic favorites: the Ippudo Pork Bun (Php 100) and the Ippudo Fried Chicken Bun (Php 100).
One of the new ramen sidekicks is the Fried Chicken Skin Salad (Php 220).
|Fried Chicken Skin Salad|
A mixed green salad topped with cherry tomatoes, shio tamago, fried chicken skin with shoyu dressing, and spicy mayonnaise sauce. The saltiness of the fried chicken skin blends well with the shoyu and the spicy mayo. Love this!
I have also tried the Okonomiyaki (Php 245) and the Nanban Karaage (Php 250).
Ippudo's version of Okonomiyaki is a bit different - it has chasyu (pork belly) on top while the Nanban Karaage is the classic chicken karaage served with tartar sauce and a side salad. Only a few restaurants know how to make Okonomiyaki, even authentic Japanese restaurants fail at this, but Ippudo's version is so outstanding I will visit again just for this. I really really love it! The same goes with the Nanban Karaage, as I do love karaage with or without ramen. Both dishes are must-try!
Another delicious ramen sidekick is the Chicken Wings (Php 255).
I love the combination of flavors from the glaze, pepper, and white sesame. It's a play on the palate.
For dessert, we had their newest dish, the Matcha Creme Brulee (Php 140).

A super creamy matcha brulee topped with vanilla ice cream and matcha. I'm not a huge fan of matcha but this dessert is mild enough to cleanse my taste buds after a savory meal.
Ippudo's new #RamenSidekicks are now available so grab your favorite bowl of Ippudo ramen with these amazing side dishes!
