Authentic Ramen for Php 99.00 Only? Here’s 99 Ramen By Ikkousha

Ikkousha is one of the top Ramen shop here in Cebu and they are still expanding their branches here in the Philippines. According to their site, Philippines might be the ‘poorest’ country as compared to other countries that they have touched (U.S., Australia, and Singapore). In these countries, the prices are even higher compared to Japan. I know you know that Filipinos really find something cheap but of good quality. That is why 99 Ramen by Ikkousha was introduced.

99 Ramen by Ikkousha

So, the other night, Megumi recommended 99 Ramen by Ikkousha in Robinsons Galleria here in Cebu. They also have branches in Park Mall and Gaisano Country Mall. The price is real cheap as compared to other ramen shops I’ve tried with prices start from P400 onwards. 99 Ramen is a child branch of Ikkousha. The difference is that the portions are cut in half to compensate with the price drop. A single order could be good for light snacks. However, if you come there hungry, you need at least two bowls of ramen, I tell you. I just did.

Ikkousha vs 99 Ramen

They are actually the same. However, the management tend to rename the branch offering cheaper ramen to 99 Ramen because according to them, customers would complain about the original price. This happened when they opened their new branch in Sugbo Merkado, a weekend night market in Cebu. I no longer wonder why customers complained since Sugbo Merkado’s stalls really offer foods at affordable prices.

Is the quality maintained at 99 Ramen by Ikkousha?

I haven’t tried the main branch Ikkousha, but as compared to other Ramen shops I’ve been like Yushoken, noodles are thin and the soup is less creamy and rich. Well, of course, that’s the price you pay for P99. Nevertheless, it is a value for money from a ramen, and I couldn’t think that any place can come close to offer such.

It’s a great buy but if I’m after quality, maybe I can resort to a better ramen shops. Although, this is a hit during “petsa de peligro” days!

The ramen looks delicious and its so cheap! I actually had a bowl of ramen recently in London but that came at a much higher price.

It’s a good idea really, good for a quick cheep snack. Of course one would expect it to be less rich, that seems logical.
