Ramen Iroha Opened its First Store in the Philippines

“We promise to serve our diners an exciting and authentic experience in Japanese cuisine,” This was what Archie Rodriguez, President and CEO of Global Restaurant Concepts, Inc., said. 

“This is a fiercely competitive segment, but we are confident that Filipinos will grow to love what we have to offer—a proud tradition of authentic Japanese.” He added.

Ramen Iroha—the award-winning ramen house from Japan—is now open at W. Global Center, Bonifacio Global City (BGC). Ramen Iroha originated from Toyama, Japan and was founded by Chef Kiyoshi Kurihara. Kurihara’s signature ramen recipes have won the people’s choice award for three consecutive years at the Tokyo Ramen Show, one of the largest ramen festivals in the Land of the Rising Sun. 

While Ramen Iroha is a late entry into the Philippines’ bustling Japanese restaurant scene, its operators remain confident that its menu will win the hearts, minds, and stomachs of Filipino diners.

Personally, I would love to taste what Ramen Iroha can offer, I'm a fan of Japanese cuisines and ramen is one of my fave.

Ramen Iroha’s Toyoma Black Ramen is a black soy ramen, which has a rich broth made from soy sauce and soybeans. Its distinct flavor is what made it one of Tokyo’s most popular dishes.

“Aside from the broth, our noodles are freshly made in-house,” described Rodriguez, adding that the restaurant’s specialty is Black Soy Ramen Line.

From black soy to miso, the restaurant offers a wide variety of savory ramen styles, as well as appetizers like Pork Nira Gyoza and Yakitori Chicken. Still, Ramen Iroha’s Toyoma Black Ramen is known as its signature dish in Japan. Aside from Toyoma Black Ramen, the restaurant also serves Tonkotsu Ramen, Hokkaido Miso Ramen, Spicy Miso, Sesame Tantan-men, and White Shrimp Ramen.

Apart from Ramen Iroha, Global Restaurant Concepts, Inc. also operates International House of Pancakes (IHOP), California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), P.F. Chang’s, and Morelli’s Gelato in the Philippines.
