The Unplanned Visit To Hai Chix & Steaks

In our pursuit for another ramen experience, we happened to come across this place. 

It was a rainy Friday. We left the office as early as 1130AM. Unfortunately, two of the places we’ve visited were already full of people who, like us, wanted to fill our tummy with hot bowl of noodles. I didn’t have much patience to wait that time. As we won’t mind to check this new place, just beside this ramen place, we headed our way inside and secure our seats. We didn’t have any ideas if it was a good decision. Taste? Price? Service? We really didn’t know.

How did it go? Well, it was worth the risk to go unplanned. This hainanese chicken and steak place had something to sell. They really have great tasting foods. We loved everything we had in our table. We’re glad we never stuck to our original plan. 

Just In Case I Forgot About Things Vol. 19: Katsu

Kumikatsu’s. These 3 are said to be the best of their flavored tonkatsus. Garlic. Pepper. Cheese. A set costs Php 380.00 with unlimited serving of rice, cabbage and pickled vegetables and miso soup. Of these 3, I would have preferred the original tonkatsu or the peppered flavored, at least.

Just In Case I Forgot About Things Vol. 18: Ramen

This is what my friends in the office like to eat these days, hot bowl of noodles soup. Hence, we’re checking out these ramen places nearby the office.

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka’s Tokusen Toroniku Ramen. Php 495.00. This is Karai-Miso, chili, based ramen. I don’t have much tolerance for spicy foods yet I still ordered one. I’ll only ask to make it little less spicy. At the end, it was cleared up to the bottom. Yum!

Just In Case I Forgot About Things Vol. 17: Maze Soba

Mendokoro’s Karai Maze Soba. Php 390.00. Soupless. As it was explained to us, karai is mixed with chillies. Hence, when I was asked of my preferred level of spiciness, I answered level 1 only, without thinking. And yet, that’s too much for me. My nose was dripping cold. Ahaha. Would I order it again? Of course, highly recommended.

This what it looked like after I mixed them. It had a lot of charsiu bits and bean sprouts that when I finished all the noodles, I can still finish a bowl of rice with what’s left of the charsius. That’s how generous the serving was.

Just In Case I Forgot About Things Vol. 16: Ramen

Teppanya’s Tonkotsu Ramen, Php 385.00. I didn’t expect my daughter will enjoy this. She’s always been too picky with what she eats. But with this one, she almost finish it. Only those on top were left for me. Hence, I will have to note this one, more than anything. My daughter loved it and so do I.
