This Japanese restaurant in Iloilo City serves ramen with batchoy soup.
Since you’ll find the authentic La Paz batchoy in Iloilo and Ilonggos love soups Chef Roderick Sesbreño thought of giving it a Japanese twist. For the ingredients, most of the different spices he use for the ramen came all the way from Japan. He is even the one who makes the ramen noodles.
The soup is a fusion of Japanese and Filipino favorites.
