Kureji, Vertis North

If you're looking for a crazy fun ramen experience, make sure to visit Kureji at Vertis North!



Recently, I discovered a new homegrown Japanese restaurant that specializes in sizzling ramen - Kureji! 
We all know Filipinos love anything cooked on sizzling plates, so imagine when two of our classic favorites - sizzling plates and ramen - are merged together. Sounds amazing, right? But before we get into the restaurant's main offering, let me first introduce some of their appetizers!

The edamame is a classic Japanese appetizer, which in my experience, is usually served boiled. At Kureji, it is either cooked in salt (shio) or kimchi (kimuchi). I thought it was a nice start to the meal, since it gave us an idea on the kind of twist Kureji puts to Japanese classics.

I also enjoyed their Chicken Wings (P250) which come in unique flavors like Soy Garlic Yuzu, Sriracha, and Salt & Vinegar. I'm not usually a fan of chicken wings, but I swear I couldn't stop eating the Salt & Vinegar!

Gyoza (P200)

A friend of mine referred to me before as the "gyoza monster" because I love gyoza so much. As glad as I am that Kureji kept the original version on its menu, it might be cool to see them do a different take on it as well. Maybe a cheese gyoza? What do you think?

Onto the other more "common" finds at Kureji - the Kani Mango Salad and Chicken Karaage! I think these are must-have dishes on the menu since they are ones that everyone generally likes.

These are no brainers, for sure. But there's something extra special about their Chicken Karaage.. and that sauce!! Definitely a must-try!

At Kureji, you won't only find sizzling ramen, but sizzling rice as well. During our visit, we got to try two kinds, the Gyudon and Tomato Seafood. Both priced at Php 350.

The Gyudon is your typical simmered beef on top of steamed rice, except it's served in a stone bowl. I really liked it, but not as much as I enjoyed the Tomato Seafood. I've never had anything quite like it before; I just love how they've put together tomatoes and seafood this way. Ten thumbs up for this!

They also have a similar version for the sizzling ramen - it also turned out to be my favorite. All the other ramen dishes they have are the regular flavors like Shio, Shoyu, and Garlic Miso. They weren't bad at all, it's just that the Tomato Seafood stood out for me the most.

Ramen here is served in a way it's not supposed to be: sizzling and bubbling in a scorching hot bowl.

They suggest you eat this immediately (or once the timer runs out) since it can dry up really fast. Don't worry though, all their ramen comes with extra soup on the side, so you can still fully enjoy its tasty broth.
