Ramen Daisho

Expectations were high for Ramen Daisho, one of the newest ramen joints in the metro, since a lot of people have been comparing it to Ukokkei Ramen Ron. It even ranked 2nd in a well-loved food blogger’s 10 best ramen places in the metro. Plus, when we got there on a Sunday evening, the restaurant was packed with only two tables left.

DSC_0430Their menu was great since it was pretty straight to the point. Both of us ordered their regular-sized Miso Ramen, a half order of Beef Curry, Chahan, and Gyoza.

DSC_0431First to arrive was their Beef Curry, which fell into the not bad category. I have to note that there were  only a few beef pieces in the curry. Maybe it was because it was only a half order, but it really felt like we were only eating curry sauce with the rice, since the beef was practically nonexistent.

DSC_0432The Chahan came next, and this was the highlight of our meal, at least in my opinion. Francis didn’t think it was anything special, but I loved every bite of it anyway.

DSC_0434I really liked their Chahan and this picture proves how much I enjoyed every bite!

DSC_0435The Miso Ramen came in last, and we were very eager to dig in immediately. But we noticed sadly just how oily the ramen was! We had to scoop out the oil first before eating.

The soup was very reminiscent of Ukokkei Ramen’s, I’ll give them that. But the noodles, the chashu, and everything else paled in comparison.

I wish we had been a bit more adventurous that night and ordered other ramen variants instead of our usual.
