Hobbies of Asia in Macapagal Boulevard is the place we frequent for our imported goods fix and of course, Aling Tonya’s Palutuan is just near. But we found another reason why we should visit Hobbies of Asia more often, to eat authentic ramen from Genya Tonkotsu Ramen.
Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen is soy sauce based broth. The broth is rich and packs a lot of flavor. I added Ajitsuke Tamago or seasoned soft-boiled egg in my noodles because I love soft-boiled eggs. And they made it perfect, well-cooked whites but runny yolk. They only serve 50 Ajitsuke Tamago per day.
The flavorful broth is the result of boiling the tonkatsu for 18 hours. Well, this is what their menu says…
Jeff ordered the spicy ramen called Pilikara Ramen.
The spicy taste overwhelmed the richness of the broth. All that we can taste is the spicy taste.
The noodles are not the instant style noodles though I’m not sure if they are freshly made. But the noodles are not overcooked. The tonkatsu or pok cutlet is tender.
Genya Tonkotsu Ramen has ample parking space and it’s easy to spot as they are just in front of Hobbies of Asia.
For those with monstrous appetite, they have this Bikkura Ramen Challenge. Finish the 2500 gram Bikkura Ramen in 20 minutes and it’s free.
Now, move over Ajisen Ramen, we now have a special ramen place and it’s Genya Tonkotsu Ramen.
