Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is serving it up to 11 with their 11th branch at the UP Town Center now open to ramen lovers north of the metro. It’s Japanese culture in a bowl as they bring their authentic, passionately-cooked ramen recipe for more diners in this part of the city. Its soup is good to the last drop.
Hokkaido Ramen Santouka started in 1988 when founder Hitoshi Hatanaka perfected his family ramen recipe. He wanted to make delicious ramen for families and the 20-hour daily effort to cook the soup to keep it fresh and delicious. From a single restaurant in Hokkaido serving shio (salt) ramen, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka has now spread to other countries, including the Philippines, and enjoyed by thousands daily.
The ramen at Santouka is thicker than usual and flavorful. The noodles are springy and firm and the other ingredients serve to enhance the union of the broth and the noodles. Choose from Shio (salt), Shoyu (soy sauce), Miso (soybean paste), Kara-Miso (spicy soybean paste) and their specialty ramens.
Aside from ramens, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka also serves gyoza, tonkatsu, tori (chicken) karaage, soft shell crab salad, sushi, takoyaki, Char siu pao, Salmon roll roe and Charsiu roll. Aside from that, they also have fried chicken tsukemen and tonkatsu tsukemen. Currently, the soft shell crab salad and sushi, regular takoyaki, cheese takoyaki, fried chicken tsukemen and tonkatsu tsukemen are only available at the UP Town Center branch.
And it’s good news for students! The opening of the new branch features special discounts available until October. Students can truly say TGIF (thank God it’s Friday) every Friday from September 22 to October 13 as they enjoy 20% discount on Santouka’s new offerings: fried chicken tsukemen and tonkatsu tsukemen upon presentation of a valid student ID.
