Finally, after so many discussions, our date was set last Monday. We were child-free for a couple of hours (yahoo!) and we got to chat and had a really awesome time!
I was with my blogger friends, Berlin of Momi Berlin, Mhaan of Mommy Rockin’ in Style and Melisa of Seafarer’s Wife Diaries during this time, and believe me, it was not easy to set this date! haha. We had discussed this for hours on chat, checked if we’re all available at this time and of course, asked permission from our hubbies if we could go out. lol. Turns out, we have the most supportive hubbies in the world so here we are! lol! (Thank you so much gents, you don’t know how much this means to us, haha!).
Before anything else, a side story: we came in early and I noticed that their door knob was designed as a knife, I was so amazed, I didn’t realize, the sign says CLOSED! Haha. We laughed it off and I went back and asked when they’ll open. I was told in 5 mins. Lol! I didn’t feel embarrassed! Haha.
|Chasyu Ramen – PHP 320: Tonkotsu/Shoyu/Braised Pork Belly|
|Signature Happiness Ramen – PHP 480: Shoyu tonkotsu broth ramen topped with tender, slow-braised custom cut soft bone pork rib|
|Rice Bowls (left to right) Happiness Rice Bowl – PHP 250 : Pork Rib over Steamed Rice and Drunk Man Rice Bowl – PHP 280: Kakuni with 2 fried eggs on rice|
Actually, we ordered more than enough so I got to take home the Drunk Man Rice bowl and give it to my sisters. There’s no doubt they loved it!
Happiness rice bowl tasted fine for me. I was more delighted with the ramen! Wow, both of them are really tasty, I could not choose which of the two is my most favorite, but if I were to choose one, it would be the cheaper one, lol! Since this is my first time to taste ramen (as far as I can remember), I can’t compare its taste but all I can say is I was so satisfied and full with what we ate. Thanks to Mhaan for taking us here!
And as what other say, if a restaurant is always filled with customers, that only means one thing: they serve delicious food! Hanamaruken was filled in no time as soon as they opened their store! So, it’s safe to say their foods are really gastronomic!
The place, I think can accommodate around 50 – 60 customers, if I’m not mistaken. It’s quiet, but because there are many customers, you can’t expect it to be that quite but you are still able to talk to each other. So that works for me.
On customer service, we weren’t really inconvenienced or given service that goes above and beyond, so for me, their customer service is “OK”, It’s their food that’s outstanding here. I definitely would come back!
