Sick with stubborn phlegm (eeew, right?) and nursing a cold, I bravely tried a “mini” restaurant in Burgos Circle, Fort Bonifacio called “Wrong Ramen”. What intrigued me was what I could find “wrong” in this new ramen place. Here, I had a spontaneous but timely dinner with my “Japanese Doll”. Divine appointment indeed, it was like serendipity.
When I said it’s a “mini” restaurant, I meant every letter of it. Be prepared because:
M – Magkakarinigan kayo ng “seat mates” mo,
I – Indi ka masyado makakaubo if may sakit ka kasi nakakahiya sa katabi mo,
N – this place is NOT for big groups,
I – Intay for your turn since it’s really a small place
We browsed their simple menu and observed how adorable their salt shaker, which looks like a battery, the wooden tables, plastic chopsticks and their warm ambient lighting. While trying not to cough that much dahil mukhang nandidiri na sa akin mga katabi ko (take note: it’s like being in a 6-seater table with strangers + booths with tall stools facing the window on their 2nd floor), Japanese doll saw their “Good with Ramen” options and chose to try Wrong Ramen’s…
While munching over their yummy appetizer with their very own katsu ketchup, I read their menu options for Classic Ramen (thin, homemade ramen noodles in a bowl of piping hot soup) with five different choices such as: Wrong Ramen Tonkatsu, The Communist’s Ramen, Wrong Ramen Tantanmen, F.U. Ramen (interesting ingredients such as crispy bacon, melted cheese and crispy fried egg) and Sea Men Ramen. Without any hesitation, guess what I ordered? My one and only choice for that evening was their ONLY porkless ramen made of well as the name suggests ~ sea food (clams, squid, and shrimp). When ordering this dish, just be prepared to be greeted with your waiter’s mischievous smile.
Their dishes are actually good to share including their Tsukemen (homemade ramen noodles separately served with concentrated broth that acts as a dipping sauce), which I don’t have a photo of since my Japanese date already devoured it hehe. Under this category are two options – A.A. (Almost Authentic) Tsukemen and Buffalo Chicken Tsukemen.
