Kapitolyo is known to be one of those havens for foodies, so it was natural for a Ramen place to pop up here. Ramen Cool looks like one of those ramen restaurants that have been trending in recent times, but it does have a few things that make it stand out. The place in Kapitolyo itself lends credence to the word “Cool” in its name.

Ramenheads Paolo, Jim and I were craving for ramen last Thursday, so we drove to Ramen Cool Pasig Branch  to satisfy our tummies, just in time for lunch.

The place itself had a nice contemporary interior and a warm ambiance that makes it both classy and inviting at the same time.

It combines both the trappings of a western restaurant with a Japanese motif that’s tastefully done. Ramen Cool Kapitolyo can pass off as a Japanese restaurant in general, but it just happens to specialize in ramen.

The selection of ramen is fairly extensive, going from the usual Shio, Shoyu, and Miso Ramen to others like Tempura Ramen, Mabo Ramen, Katsu Curry Ramen, and Hiyashi Chuka Ramen. The Beef Ramen is one of the more expensive ones, yet it costs PhP 245.

Then there’s the signature RCool Ramen for PhP 295, which I had. It has a ton of toppings on it, including pork, corn, and hardboiled egg, and it was quite an experience. The ramen here is more affordable than that of many other ramen places out there, yet servings are substantial, so it’s great for ramen fans who want their fix but are also on a budget.

There’s also dry ramen and yakisoba for those who want fried noodles. I tried the RCool Seafood Yakisoba for PhP 230, which was very tasty and had a lot of toppings on it as well. It was served in extremely generous servings, which is enough for 3 – 4 persons.

You can get some Gyoza to go with everything else. I tried their Tamagoyaki (155php) and I thought it was flawlessly prepared and uber-delicious, making it my favorite dish from their menu.

For those who want something with rice, there’s Gyudon and Katsudon, as well as Chicken Teriyakidon I had for PhP 185.

For those who want something crunchy, the Karaage should go well with both ramen and rice.

A selection of maki is also available for those who want a sushi offering. Ramen Cool has California Love, with is their California maki, which costs PhP 195. There’s Tuna Spicy Mayo Maki for those who want something hot. I myself had the Osaka Salmon Roll, which is torched salmon, for PhP 325.

It does cost quite a bit, but it was indeed delicious.

There are also other stuff that cost more than the ramen, like the Tempura Islander for PhP 365, and the Unagi Overload for PhP 465. But judging from the Osaka Salmon Roll I had, they could indeed be worth the price.

Ramen Cool Kapitolyo is a good place to eat in if you happen to be a ramen head, and I can definitely recommend this restaurant for all the foodies out there. While the name implies it being a just a ramen place, its other offerings are actually worth going for as well.

There’s also a Ramen Cool branch in SM Manila for those who live at that area, so you can give it a try without having to go all the way to Kapitolyo.
