Ramen Nagi – SM Mall of Asia

ramen nagi review
I am currently nursing a fever as I am writing this post and sadly, I’ve had this fever on and off since January 1. Yes. I am sick as I welcome 2016. -_- Anyways, the other night Earvin made a joke that he’ll take me to Ramen Nagi as soon as I get better. He knows how much I love Ramen Nagi and that I’ve been craving for their Butao King for days. And since I want to publish an article every Sunday related to food, I just find it fitting to publish a Ramen Nagi post right now since all I can ever think of is their ramen. ๐Ÿ˜‰

ramen nagi butao king review
Butao King; their Bestseller
This is my favorite among all their ramen. If you are new to ramen, I suggest you order their Butao King and believe me, you’ll love it. It’s rich, aromatic, and savory. I love ordering it with pork shoulders and cabbage. ๐Ÿ˜‰
I have to mention too that you can customize your at Ramen Nagi, you can customize pretty much everything and pay extra for sides like tamago, nori, or an extra pork shoulder. It’s up to you! You don’t have to worry too if it’s your first time in Ramen Nagi since your server will gladly assist you in customizing your ramen. ๐Ÿ™‚

Black King

Black King
I have also tried Black King and I must say I didn’t enjoy it as much as the Butao King. Aside from the vain reason that it makes your teeth black, I didn’t really get to taste a distinct squid flavor. It just tastes like a very garlicky Butao King. I love garlic but if I’ll have to choose between the two, I’ll definitely go for Butao King over this one.
ramen nagi red king review
Red King
I am never brave enough to order Red King because it has a minimum spicy level of 5 and I’m pretty sure that’s too spicy for me. I can imagine myself sweating bullets and drinking water like crazy if I ever have this. This is Earvin’s favorite though. This is his order everytime we dine in at Ramen Nagi. I guess it’s that good? You know him, once he found the food that he really likes at a certain restaurant, he never turns his back on it. Remember that Carbonara from Cafe Mary Grace? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Chasu Rice

My sister is not a fan of ramen so she always opt to order their Chasu Rice which she loved so much. It has a generous serving of pork and is quite sweet, which is why she loves it. lol.

ramen nagi gyoza review


our favorite ramen nagi gyoza

Ramen Nagi’s Gyoza is one of our all time favorites. I can’t even remember a single trip to Ramen Nagi where we didn’t order it, we just have to have it all the time. Though Ramen Nagi claimed that it’s a meaty goodness, I find that it has more vegetables than meat in it. ย I enjoy the fact that Earvin enjoys this like me because he doesn’t like veggies(but he likes ceasar salad!) and I can probably count in my fingers all the veggies that he eats, this is such a sneaky way to incorporate veggies in his diet.

Star Salad


ramen nagi star salad review
Star Salad
Ramen Nagi’s Star Salad is literally lettuceย + crispy noodlesย + mayo. I enjoyed it and it’s refreshing but I find it to pricey considering how simple it is. Plus, it reminds me of a junk food I used to it during my childhood. Any 90s kid out there who remembers those crispy noodles? Sorry, I forgot what they’re called.
I hope this Ramen Nagi post made your mouth water as much as it did on me. I am so looking forward for this fever to leave so I can claim Earvin’s prize for me. Haha!

    Such a shame that you have to ring in the new year with a cold. Wishing you well, Angelie.

    Ramen Nagi sounds fantastic! I've been craving ramen for a while now, actually! I definitely remember those crispy noodles — they've got different brands, don't they?

    Love Ramen, but have to admit I did not know that there were that many varieties. Your photos are amazing… so delicious and tempting. Yum

    The crispy noodles you’re thinking of might be Nooda Crunch. They’re still found in some supermarkets here you know! Thanks for the suggestion on the Butao King ramen, I’ll make sure to try it out when I have the chance.. What’s your opinion on the pricepoint vs. quantity vs. quality on ramen nagi? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ramen Nagi is one of the first ” legit ” ramen places I’ve tried. One thing that really got me interested in them is how Japanese their restaurant looks. It really captured the essence of being in an actual Japanese restaurant. I also like the simplicity of their menu( almost 4-5 ramen only). Price aside, I think Ramen Nagi gives customers the real Ramen experience
