Ramen weather

NOTHING beats the cool weather like a hot bowl of ramen. Now in the midst of a pandemic, did you know you can actually order DIY (do-it-yourself) authentic ramen to be delivered straight to your own home?

Allow us to show you how and where to get some:

Tongara Ramen’s “Easy Ramen Kit”

How to order: Message Tongara Ramen on Facebook or text or call them through 0917-555-8240.

Tongara Ramen will let you experience the meticulous and careful preparation of traditional Japanese ramen through its “Easy Ramen Kit.”

Every ingredient — from wheat noodles, signature Tongara broth to menma — is thoroughly and individually packed. Unlike instant noodles, there’s no need to add water because its special broth is more than enough (Beware: Adding water may spoil the quality and consistency of the ramen). The kit also includes an easy step-by-step guide on how to prepare the warm bowl of Japanese noodles. Preparation date and best-consumed-by date are also placed on the packaging for your reference.

Though it took some time before Tongara Ramen could launch its kits because it needed to get an approval from Japan first — as integrity of the product is very important — it’s definitely worth the wait.

Ramen Yushoken’s “Take Me Home Ramen Kit”

How to order: Visit its Facebook page and fill out its order form or go to

Ramen Yushoken started offering its “Take Me Home Ramen Kit” and “Take Me Home Gyoza Kit” back since the enhanced community quarantine started with the goal of serving its ramen at home at the closest possible quality possible that you would expect in its restaurant.

The “Take Me Home Ramen Kit” includes the main ingredient which is the broth that is already blended with the seasoning according to that variant one chooses (shio, shoyu, super chashu, tantanmen or ebi tonkotsu), the hand-pulled noodles, the corresponding meat and the assorted toppings such as sesame seeds and vegetables.

To ensure the quality of its ramen and gyoza, Ramen Yushoken prepared these kits in a separate kitchen dedicated to the exact process it provides for its customers in the restaurant. This includes fool-proof containers, precise measurement of ingredients to the nth of a gram and a lot of proprietary processes and methods. The team had to test and take into account the temperature fluctuations together with the travel time and adjust its recipes to ensure that it will hold up better so its customers will receive a product Ramen Yushoken can be proud of putting its brand on.
