A new food experience: Nomama Artisanal Ramen

I’ve been wanting to try Nomama Artisanal Ramen ever since I read about it on It was a slow day at work and I was looking at places to eat after my shift, and voila, a photo of raw tuna artfully arranged on a plate made me instantly curious about the place.

So after month of anticipation and an opportunity to take a friend to somewhere new, I got to try Nomama Artisanal Ramen last week. I finally sunk my teeth into this:

The menu describes it as “Spicy Tuna Spring Rolls, avocado cream, spicy ponzu, arugula and alfalfa. ” It was as amazing as I thought. Fresh, spicy, soothing, and light all at the same time. I had to have it, even if it was a bit pricey at P330.

Of course, the place being known for its ramen, I had to try a bowl. I am not the biggest fan of ramen, more a pho girl, but I do like soup, noodles, and a bowl of something good.

I had the Ox Tongue and Chili Tofu ramen pictured below:

It was good, unusual with its slices of ox tongue, a bit spicy with the red sauce thing on top, with the tofu cubes melting in your mouth. My companion had the Nomama ramen, which was also really good, with an amazing pork broth.

All in all a good experience. I would definitely go back to Nomama just for the Tuna Loin, and am extremely curious about the Wagyu Ramen.

Nomama’s Facebook page is here:

They’re found here: G/F FSS Bldg 2, Scout Tuason cor Scout Castor Sts, Quezon City, Ph

Prepare about P500 a head, and arrive with a empty belly, waddle out with their amazing broth sloshing around.

Now who wants to go back with me?
