I had a well spent Monday over different ramen choices at Uma Uma Ramen in Uptown Parade, BGC. I am not a picky eater when it comes to Ramen, during our visit to the said ramen house I had the chance to try 5 kinds of Ramen. Each has its own distinct taste that’s is suited for its price ranging from P360.00 to P490.00. One bowl serving is can be shared by two people, well I had mine in one sitting. I had the Uma Uma Ramen, the greatness of flavor is well-balanced that I had finished it to the last drop. The meat was so tender that it easily pulls apart, the noodles are “al dente” and it absorbed the broth too well. The best of all it’s 100% MSG free!
Seafood lover should better try this dry type of Ramen, aligue base topped with crab cakes, ebi and egg. Imagine these full of flavors in one bowl, it would definitely give a seafood chill after. I kinda like it, the crab cakes tends to be a little bit dry if it was overcooked so don”t forget to remind the waiterupon ordering that you want it a little moist.
The Garlic Ramen was also a hit as roasted garlic has a nutty flavor which combines with the sweetness of fried shallots.
Tan Tan Men and Mazesoba with Chasiu (first photo) are both dry ramen. The Mazebo has a little crunchy taste as it has beans sprouts and bamboo shoots. The Tan Tan Men, was perfect for a something lighter meal as it don’t have the broth.
Aside from Ramens, Uma Uma has great choice of appetizers and bar chow. So far everything that I had were so good that it was hard for me to picked one.
Beers and cocktails are aslo available at Uma Uma, I can imagine myself getting a bowl of Ramen after a drinking day out/night out while munching on these Japanese goodies like One-Bite Gyoza, Gyoza Skin with Wasabi Mayo, Mentaiko Cheeseballs and Edamame.
A simple place yet the dishes are overflowing with flavors that’s how I summed up my Uma Uma Ramen experience.
