MANILA – Ramen Iroha, a restaurant in Japan that specializes in noodle soup dishes, is finally here in the Philippines.
The brand was brought to the country by Global Restaurant Concepts Inc. (GRCI), the same company behind the local franchises of California Pizza Kitchen, Morelli’s and PF Chang’s, among others.
The first Philippine branch of Ramen Iroha is located at W Global Center at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.
“We promise to serve our diners an exciting and authentic experience in Japanese cuisine,” said GRCI president and chief executive officer Archie Rodriguez.
“This is a fiercely competitive segment, but we are confident that Filipinos will grow to love what we have to offer – a proud tradition of authentic Japanese,” he added.
Founded by Chef Kiyoshi Kurihara, Ramen Iroha is known for serving different kinds of ramen. One of these is the Toyoma Black Shoyu Ramen, which has won the people’s choice award for three consecutive years at the Tokyo Ramen Show.
Other ramen variants include Tonkotsu Ramen, Hokkaido Miso Ramen, Spicy Miso, Sesame Tantan-men and White Shrimp Ramen.
The restaurant also offers appetizers such as Pork Nira Gyoza and Yakitori Chicken.
Aside from the Philippines, Ramen Iroha has 14 branches across Japan, Hong Kong and the United States.
