Ramen Renditions at
Waterfront Cebu's Mizu Restaurant

My husband and I are always on the look out for new restaurants and we're eager to try different cuisines. Among our top picks are scrumptious chicken souvlaki from Greece, classic carbonara from Italy, traditional Chinese dumplings and Japanese tempura, to name a few.

But the one food that we have yet to find here in Cebu that suits our taste is the Japanese staple noodle dish, Ramen. It was perfect timing that I got invited to dine at MIZU at Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino as their resident Japanese Chef, Ken Imamura, offered a selection of outstanding Ramen dishes using only the finest Japanese ingredients.

Together with other members of the media, I had the opportunity of sampling Chef Imamura's seven favourite Ramen flavours such as Seafood Milk Ramen, Hambago Ramen, Spicy Kimuchi Ramen, Stamina Ramen, Tonkatsu Ramen, Miso Ma-Botofu and Pork Katsu Ramen.

I enjoyed the luncheon and I have to say, Pork Katsu is my favourite! The breaded pork just makes the meal so much more substantial. I like that they had generous servings, which is perfect during the rainy season. Even though I haven't been to Japan (Tokyo, I'm coming for you next year!) the dishes were a wonderful introduction to the country.

Together with my fellow Cebu Fashion Bloggers, Marco and Jean.
