Birthday dinner at Maisen SM North Edsa

I can’t keep up with so many new restos popping up lately. As they say, so many restos, so little time, and just one tummy to fill. Whenever we’re in SM North Edsa, we usually eat at the usual places. But when I saw Maisen, I knew that I had to try this, I’m just waiting for a special occasion. Finally, my birthday came and it’s a Maisen dinner for us.

Maisen is one of the finest tonkatsu restaurant in Japan and Ben Chan brought it here in Manila. The facade is really warm and inviting.

Ryu Ramen & Curry

This is another ramen post by a ramen lover, yours truly.

I first learned about Ryu Ramen & Curry after watching an episode of Poptalk last year. The next day, we found ourselves slurping a hot bowl of spicy ramen inside the restaurant. Ryu Ramen & Curry is just along Tomas Morato and we didn’t have a hard time finding the place. Parking might be a challenge though especially during peak hours.
