Uma Uma Ramen

Uma Uma Ramen is a ramen shop originating from Fukuoka, Japan run by its now president, Masahiko Teshima. Originally named ‘Wu Maru’ in 1953 by Teshima’s father, Teshima decided to give the business a fresh start by renaming it when he took over in 1994. It will be serving authentic Hakata-style ramen made with thin noodles and aromatic tonkotsu stock, a family recipe. Signature bowls include: Uma Uma Ramen, Mazesoba Chasiu, and Tan Tan Mien. A Sakura Ebi Ramen will also be launched in Manila. All bowls will be priced below P400.

A unique part of this ramen shop is that it’s also going to house a speakeasy with a fantastic view of the bay called HORSE’S MOUTH, which will be serving cocktails crafted by Johan Foong.  Watch out because he’s flying in on grand opening day.
