FOODTRIP(154): Gokinjo Marikina

A month ago, I went back at the famous Lilac St. in Marikina for a dinner. Looking for a place to eat, I came across Gokinjo which is Japanese restaurant in Marikina, famous for their unlimited and affordable ramen. Craving for ramen that time, we decided to try out their famous ramen.
It is located at Rainbow St. near Lilac St. Marikina. Interiors are well decorated with Japanese decors. Place is spacious as there are indoor and outdoor seating.

Menu below:

Here’s what we ordered:

Shoyu Ramen (Regular – Php150)
“Soy, braised pork, ajitama, ramen noodles”
-         Honestly, I was a bit disappointed since the broth tastes so bland that I had to add spices and soy just to add a flavor. Personally, the noodles were a little hard and seems like it doesn’t match the ramen. Serving size was okay though I think they must improve the taste.

Tantanmen (Regular – Php160)
“Sesame paste, sautéed pork, chili, ajitama, ramen noodles”
-          Same as the Shoyu Ramen, the broth was a little bland but tastes a bit better.

Gyoza (5pcs – Php110)
-          The 5 pieces gyoza seems a bit smaller than what we expected but no worries since the gyoza was good and cooked well. Price was okay for me.

Though I already read mixed review about their restaurant and their photos and promotion on Facebook seems so appealing, I really felt disappointed with the tastes of the ramen served. Photos were very appetizing but the taste of the ramen was bland for us. No problem with the serving size, the place and even their friendly staffs but I think they should improve on the quality instead of quantity of the ramen they served. 😊
