Found my happiness at Hanamaruken Ramen, Trinoma

Hey guys, your ramen girl is back! You may have noticed the lack of ramen posts here but that doesn’t mean that I’m no longer a ramen monster. I still get my ramen fix and already tried Ramen Nagi, Mitsuyado Sei-Men, and Hanamaruken Ramen. I promise to write about them and let me start with Hanamaruken Ramen in Trinoma.

I think yesterday was our 5th visit in Hanamaruken Ramen in Trinoma. We dined here with our friends on its opening month, the succeeding visits were with my family to have our ramen fix.

Hanamaruken Ramen is a franchise from Osaka, Japan. It was created by a family of butchers in 1982. It is a subsidiary of the Arakawa Pork Company, a reputable supplier of high-quality meat in Osaka, Japan. Hence, it not only brings the flavors of Osaka through its ramen but also with its meat.

Our usual order: shoyu-based ramen for Jeff, spicy ramen for me, and a rice bowl for Ate Rose.

Food Finds: Taste n See Toasted Pastillas and Rodillas Yema Cake

I’ve been seeing a lot of food sellers on Instagram offering Taste N See Toasted Pastillas and Rodillas Yema Cake. I was curious but holding back from ordering online since I don’t want my food to be squished during shipping. During our visit to Robinsons Magnolia, there was a food bazaar near the food court and I saw one store selling Rodillas Yema Cake. What happens next is me unboxing my yema cake at home.

Shomal Kebabs and Curries by Hossein, Trinoma

Shomal Kebabs and Curries is the new name of Hossein’s restaurant, a restaurant that serves Halal Middle Eastern cuisine. We fancied to try this restaurant after getting used to the taste of Mister Kebab and Grilled Tomato. A little on the expensive side but upon tasting the saffron rice, I then knew the difference between eating at Shomal and the latter two. Mister Kebab and Grilled Tomato serve their kebabs with just plain rice and a small dollop of butter. At Shomal, we’re in for a treat.

Chicken Mami House

A cold, rainy and windy day deserves a hearty hot bowl of soup. We just had Spicy Beef Noodles from Chowking the other day and this time in Trinoma, we were surprised to see a new resto at the Cinema levels, the Chicken Mami House. It’s between Mexicali and Jamaican Patties so moviegoers won’t miss it. The simple name says it all, MAMI! We ordered their specialty called Binondo Mami which has siomai and lechon macau on it. Jeff also ordered Bola-Bola siopao and 5 pcs. and siomai.

My pixie crop hairstyle by Acqua Salon

I’m now sporting a pixie crop ala-Katie Holmes hairstyle after my second visit to Acqua Salon in Trinoma. I want a drastic change for my long rebonded hair that’s why I opted for a short haircut. Clueless of what are the hair trends for 2009, I just requested for a really short haircut that will suit my facial features to my assigned stylist, Ms. Laila. I don’t want a bob hairstyle anymore since it’s so 2008. After a lavish shampoo and scalp massage, Ms. Laila proceeds with my haircuit. And the result…

A haircut and threading experience at Acqua Salon, Trinoma

It’s payday and peeps in the office decided to hit the mall and unwind at Giligan’s. While my husband and other officemates are having their fill at Giligan’s, I decided to have some “me”-time and went to the salon instead. It’s been a while since I had my haircut and my hair had grown long just above my waist. I always go to Bench Fix for my haircut but I decided to give a new salon a try, Acqua Salon looks promising based on the reviews from other forums and blogs.
