Can you feel the chills? No! It’s not his heart that’s as cold as ice, but it’s definitely the cool December air serving as a gentle reminder that Christmas is just around the corner! But whether it’s the cool December air or the heart of your ex-lover that’s giving you chills, I know a place where you can warm yourself and satisfy your appetite. Ikkousha Ramen Cebu is located in JY Square, Salinas  Drive,Cebu City. It is indeed a happy place for Ramen lovers because of the distinct taste of the ramen that it has.

I first tasted their ramen in Sugbu Mercado at IT Park where they had a buy 1 take 1 promo for the first 100 customers.Yep! I was one of the people who waited for their stall to open. It was a worthwhile experience because I instantly fell in love with this ramen. Now, every time I crave for ramen, I always think of Ikkousha.

Ikkousha has different variants of ramen, frieds and rice meals. It is known for its collagen-rich pork bone soup, served with thin noodles, four slices of tender pork cha-shu, and a flavored egg. To complete it, the dish is topped with fungus and spring onions for an appetizing makeover.

For weekdays, they also serve lunch menu from 11 AM to 5 PM which starts at 240 pesos. This combo meal consists of half bowl Tonkotsu ramen + any of the following dishes: Gyoza, Karaage, Karaage Don, and Cha-Shu Mayo Don.

Its spiciness comes in 4 levels– definitely a test of the fittest.
