It is definitely not the kind of place where you have specialty Japanese ramen but what do you expect from a hole-in-the-wall along the Olongapo-Gapan road in Sta. Cruz, Lubao going to Subic? The place is called Gyudon and it is owned by a Japanese guy who married a Filipina. The food does taste authentic but nothing out of this world. The menu offers two varieties of pork ramen (yes, only pork): shoyu which is soy-based, and shio which is salt-based. We had the shoyu; it was simple and hearty but I’d still go to Ukokei for their ramen anytime. By the way, that ramen shown above (big size) costs only 50 pesos.
This katsudon costs 53 pesos 🙂
It was a rainy night so this bowl was slurped up in 2 minutes.
This serving of crab and prawn sushi costs 70 pesos.
can you believe this maki plate is only 50 pesos?
I didn’t eat this chicken (P45) but my friend weng said it was really good
they use real japanese rice, of the sticky kind
It’s virtually a carinderia, with just 4 tables. Can you spot the photo of the owner on the wall?
