Ukokkei Ramen Ron still serves some of the best bowls of ramen in the metro. Now before I get a lot of bashing on how I regarded the place to be one of the ‘best’. It’s really a personal preference, for me it’s the love of that rich and milky pork bone / tonkotsu broth, or that earthy and nutty flavor you get from the miso. So in this regard, I think most of you would agree with me, Ukokkei really excels in making that excellent miso soup base.
Lolo Dad’s Café in Malate, Manila — A culinary gem tucked right in the center on one of the city’s most busy areas. A place dedicated to dish out some of the most delectable, well-plated entrees; unparalleled quality of food is expected from their gold medal winning kitchen spear headed by Master Chef Ariel Manuel. This is definitely a place for special occasions, for that wonderful dinner with your other half, or anytime you’d want to splurge and indulge with some really good food.
Duck Confit — so good it’s kind of depressing, gorgeous piece of duck leg slow cooked to perfection, with the meat really tender falling off the bone, it also yields the crispiest skin. Packed with amazing flavor, it’s to be paired with a foie gras rice; an explosion of flavor and texture that’s sure to please anyone’s palate.
