Ram N’ Go: Japinoy Street Ramen on the Go!

Street ramen is now a trend in the metro food scene. Because we Filipinos love Ramen a lot, there have been several Japanese food businesses emerging left and right in the market. This newest Ramen kiosk in Mandaluyong city is never left behind, featuring Ramen and other Japanese favorites at very affordable prices — Ram N’ Go.

About Ram N’ Go

Ram N’ Go is owned by Ms. Lori Go and the name is a combination of ramen + their family name. It could also mean ramen-to-go, your quick comfort food within your budget. Ram N’ Go is located in San Rafael Street in Mandaluyong, in a small food hall which was formerly the 8 Tables Chinese Restaurant.

It’s so surprising that Ms. Lori has no formal background in culinary, but her passion for Ramen brought her the idea to put up her own street Ramen business. She loves to explore Ramen in different places, whether in a restaurant or in food bazaars. When she saw that this has been one of the hottest trends in the food industry, she easily materialized the idea and established Ram N’ Go. Just like any food business, it did not have an easy start. Aside from managing this Ramen kiosk, she juggles her day job and motherhood and her graceful demeanor is truly impressive to handle everything with positivity. She’s very hands-on in sourcing for the local ingredients, marketing and planning that you can truly say Ram N’ Go is made out of labor of love together with her very supportive husband.

The Food

I love Japanese food so much that it was not difficult for me to like Ram N’ Go in many ways. This time, I was not looking for the authentic. I was looking for the taste that is close to the original, and Ram N’ Go didn’t disappoint.

Ramen

They have three versions of Ramen — the Karai, Classic and Mayu. The Karai is the spicy version but not too overpowering, the Classic is the basic Shiyo Tonkotsu broth, and the Mayu is the garlic-based broth. It comes in two sizes, the regular and the large (good for sharing). I liked the Mayu Ramen. The hints of garlic added savory taste to the broth.
