Two Asian favorites, Japanese ramen and Filipino sisig, come together in a kickass meal. If you think there’s something off with the combo, you thought wrong!
Tokyo Tokyo recently launched the Spicy Sisig Ramen.
Marketing Director of Tokyo Tokyo Philippines, Dustin Ngo said, “We continuously aim to provide our consumers with unique and innovative products. We are very excited about our latest ramen innovation, the Spicy Sisig Ramen featuring a special blend of our spicy pork sisig.”
The ramen is infused with pulled pork sisig, crispy chicharon, Japanese nitamago egg, fresh noodles made daily, and a 24-hr cooked rich tonkotsu broth. It’s an amalgamation of flavors in a bowl, that easily appeals to the Filipino palate. The initial taste is salty with a hint of umami, followed by a very spicy kick in the end. You’ll only feel the traitorous burn after a couple of slurps. Not to mention, the heat traces your throat, so it’s not really advisable for those with weak tolerance. We do emphasize that it leans more towards the Filipino taste, so it’s flavor is somehow far off from your typical Japanese ramen.
This is the first time the fast food restaurant will feature the ramen fusion.
A snack bowl of the new Spicy Sisig Ramen is priced at P160, while the regular size is P210. The meal could come with steamed gyoza or chicken karaage and signature red iced tea for an additional P70; and fried gyoza with red iced tea for P80.
The new menu item is available in all stores nationwide, and for delivery in selected areas.
