In search for the perfect ramen

I am a ramen addict… and perpetually on the lookout for the perfect ramen.

Last weekend, I decided to check out Uma uma! on the second level of S’ Maison Mall beside the Conrad in Pasay. The place is known for their Hakata style ramen.

Ordered their uma uma ramen during this visit. The dish was a healthy mix of chasiu pork, spring onions, black fungus, egg, and spicy miso in thick broth.

The appearance of the dish was amazing. The taste was a bit weird at first — something raw.. like liver(?) Is it the fungus, perhaps? But gradually you start to like this authentic dish. Paired it with their takoyaki balls which were likewise great.
