A hidden ramen gem in Cebu City! The third episode of “Cebu Ramen Series” is Hamakaze Ramen hidden in AS Fortuna Street, Cebu City.
All about Hamakaze Ramen
Hamakaze roughly translates as ‘beach wind’. Hamakaze Dining and Bar is a hidden ramen restaurant in Mandaue City.
It is located across the Design Center of Cebu in Banilad Street and is just a few blocks from Oakridge Business Park. It’s an intimate Japanese ramen restaurant that can accommodate up to 15-30 diners.
Inside the restaurant, you’ll feel the authentic Japanese vibes because of it’s ambiance and of course the Japanese music background while eating Hamakaze’s ramen.
And of course! Photo-op with Hamakaze logo!
Hamakaze Ramen Food
Before the main treat, we started off with appetizers called Edamame.
Edamame are edible young soybeans that are picked up before they ripen. They are usually boiled or steamed and may be served with salt.
How do you eat Edamame?
First of all, make sure that the beans are not too hot when you put them in your mouth. The way to eat it is to remove the beans from the pod by putting the whole bean in your mouth, bite the edge of the bean and slide out the edamame beans with your teeth. That way the beans will gather in your mouth and you eat them as much as you want.
Time to dig in!
We ordered their two best sellers: Shoyu Ramen and Spicy Ramen-Tantanmen and two of our other choices: Kuro(Black) Ramen and Tsukemen.
***Prices as of July 13, 2021
In Hamakaze Ramen, I tried their Kuro or Black Ramen. I liked their noodles, not too thick, not too thin. It is definitely flavorful and worth every penny! The broth is also ok and the toppings are not so generous as Tongara Ramen in Escario Central Mall.
I also tried a sip of their Tantanmen (Spicy ramen) and it was indeed very spicy. The broth of Tantanmen is thick with flavors, it’s definitely good.
I tried all the four ramen that we ordered and I guarantee that it really tastes savory!
Now, let’s see if Hamakaze Ramen is recommendable for friends and family based on our rating with Ken-san!
Here is the review from a Cebuano native (me) and my Japanese native friend, Ken-san.
