ON A RAINY DAY...a steaming hot bowl of soup is always good for the stomach and the soul =)

We have been in constant search for a good authentic ramen ever since our trip to Japan...My husband had a ramen hangover and couldn't quite get over it for a little while (well, actually, this always happens whenever we travel, he gets this food hangover from the places we go to...haha)
We've had a couple of trips to other ramen restos in the metro (i'll do separate posts on those), there have been "so-so" to "really bad" and a couple of "really good ones." For us, Ukkokei Ramen is not bad, a bit pricey though considering it's devoid of the traditional ramen"sahog" ingredients /toppings such as fishcakes, egg, seaweed, nori, tofu, etc. and i somehow find their soup a bit oilier than most...but you'll definitely know that the stock has been simmered for days with just one sip...
* Have to go back for that special ramen that requires ordering a day in advance. They say they only make 10 servings of it in a day. mmmm...
