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.
First 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.
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.
Ramen Daisho is located at Unit 2, Sunshine Square, Liberty Center, 312 Shaw Blvd. Mandaluyong City.
