The ambiance was great. Modern authentic design. Chef and staff were very friendly and accommodating. And of course, ramen was fantastic!!! Chef suggested to try both tonkotsu shio and shoyu. Both were soooo delicious. Will definitely be back. Ramen compliments cold weather of Baguio. We...also tried their tempura and wagyu. Thank you, Agara Ramen!More
I am a self-confessed ramen person. I am fastidious with my ramen choices. I get easily disappointed if I learn that the ramen served looks and tastes like an instant noodle. My love for ramen is rooted in the fact that it is a culinary...art – from the richness of its flavors, its aesthetics and the seemingly delicate techniques used on how they are prepared. A bowl of ramen holds a distinctive place in my tummy. When I slurp its soup and noodles, I feel the warmth filling my stomach, radiating happiness to my soul.I have always thought that Baguio’s weather is perfect for cafes and ramen bars/ restos. Unfortunately, we only have a few that serves really good ramen. I was delighted when Ramen Nagi opened but in the long run, one will feel burdened by the pricey cost of their ramen despite serving really good food. There are other Japanese restos here BUT the ramen they offer doesn’t come across authentic – taste most importantly.
Some people may have an impression that the place is a tad small in space but I think that is exactly what the owners have envisioned it to be (just like what most Japanese ramen bars are – small, intimate space for people eating ramen together).The menu of Agara Ramen is very straightforward. They offer 6 ramen styles. This includes the following:
Chuka Soba (a pork, chicken, fish, and vegetable broth noodles)
Tsukemen (a dipping ramen made with livestock, vegetable broth with soy sauce)
***These two are Agara Ramen’s menu flagship.
1. Tonkotsu Shio (sea salt base and pork broth) – if you like something light then this is for you.
2. Tonkotsu Shoyu (soy sauce and pork broth) – This I personally like.
3. Miso Ramen (strong pork miso soup) – My favorite. Because it is miso. I love anything miso.
4. Tantanmen (spicy pork broth soup in sesame seed paste) – Not my cup of tea, just because it is spicy.
Just like other ramen restaurants, you can also add tamago (Japanese soy sauce egg), chashu (braised pork belly), and/ or nori (seaweed). They also serve gyoza (dumplings) and karaage (fried chicken skin). All of these can be perfectly matched with a glass of Japanese barley tea (mugicha) or maybe a can of soda.My Agara Ramen experience was made more special because I got the chance to see how some of these ramen are prepared (and even eaten).
As the weather here in Baguio becomes colder (and stormy), having a bowl (or two) of ramen is good way to quickly warm us up. I may just switch between ramen and some local noodles my brother makes (Ilocos miki). So if you are up for something “ramen-tic” belly-filling, and smile-inducing — a bowl of ramen goodness at Agara Ramen is what you probably need.More
It’s rare to find authentic ramen in the Philippines, let alone in Baguio. But this hole in the wall restaurant does the job and is a great place to dine! Chef and staff are friendly and accommodating!
