Oyasumi Ramen Lets You Get Your Ramen and Risotto Fix in One

October 6, 2015

Just when you thought it was over, ramen, apparently isn’t dead…or maybe it’s just a matter of survival of the fittest. New ramen contender Oyasumi, located at the heart of P. Guevarra, recently opened a few months ago and offers an interesting approach to your leftover ramen broth.

Iekei Ramen (PHP 350)

In terms of selection, Oyasumi focuses on a few bowls of well-rounded ramen—The Iekei, which is their signature Yokohama-style ramen, is made up of a heady and flavorful combination of tonkotsu and shoyu broths with some tare, spinach, and an onsen egg.

Tomato Ramen (PHP 370) | Basil Ramen (PHP 370)

A tomato ramen packs in a tartier punch, delivering an umami-filled bowl. An off-the-menu item, basil ramen, isn’t anything close to noodles floating in green pesto soup; rather, you get a full-bodied broth with a hint of the herb.

Risotto Made With Ramen Broth (PHP 60/bowl) | Homemade Ice Cream

And here comes my favorite part—make sure you leave some broth on purpose and for an additional PHP 60, have the staff make even better sense of the umami-packed liquid by using it to make a creamy risotto that’s oozing with parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. If it’s too much to handle at the moment, pack it home and have it for lunch the next day or as a midnight snack to ease your drunken stupor. Trust me when I say this is damn good hangover food.


Next time you find yourself in San Juan, pay Oyasumi Ramen a visit—we have high hopes that this one is here to stay.

    Their homemade ice cream is pretty good as well. They’re made daily I think, so there are always different flavors available.
