The dishes are reasonably affordable with the ramen ranging from ₱420 to ₱460. The staff is also very knowledgeable about the menu and was able to provide relevant recommendations. Below are the dishes we tried during our recent visit.

Sapporo Miso Ramen by Hidemasa at City of Dreams Manila

Sapporo Miso Ramen (₱460) - The broth was thick and umami-rich with generous portions of chashu and ajitama. The ramen was also topped with buttered corn which added more depth and sweetness to the broth.

Tan Tan Men Ramen by Hidemasa at City of Dreams Manila

Tan Tan Men Ramen (₱460) - The broth was thick and had a well-balanced spiciness and creaminess. I also loved the fragrance and flavor of the sesame paste in the broth. The ramen was generously topped with minced pork.

Yakitori by Hidemasa at City of Dreams Manila

From the yakitori menu, we chose the classic Asuparabekon bacon with asparagus (₱100 per stick), Piman bacon-wrapped green pepper and cheese (₱120 per stick), and the Lechon Butabara pork belly (₱120 per stick).

Salmon Roll by Hidemasa at City of Dreams Manila

The Yamapeño Salmon Roll (₱580 for 8pcs) is the classic salmon sushi roll which is topped with tempura battered yamapeño chilis. These spicy sushi rolls are best paired with Kirin Ichiban Beer (₱235).

Surf n Turf Roll by Hidemasa at City of Dreams Manila

The Surf 'n' Turf Roll (₱640 for 8pcs) is stuffed with shrimp and topped with beef. The tartness of the mango slices balances all the flavors. These savory and lightly sweet rolls are best paired with Aka Kirishima Sochu (₱350).

Black Sesame Ice Crea by Hidemasa at City of Dreams Manila

The Black Sesame Ice Cream (₱140) is served with red bean and kinako powder. This is a recommended dessert after eating spicy dishes such as the Tan Tan Men Ramen.

Matcha Tiramisu by Hidemasa at City of Dreams Manila

The Matcha Tiramisu (₱280) is the best-selling dessert of the restaurant. I love the bitter and sweet taste of the matcha-soaked dessert, bringing back memories of my Kyoto trip in every bite.



We will definitely dine here again in our next visit to City of Dreams Manila so we can try the two other ramen options, as well as the tempura and sashimi offerings.
