    LOOK: Bari-Uma’s Super Tasty Ramens Now in BGC

    - Advertisement -

    It was a hot weekday afternoon when we got the chance to explore the newest ramen house in BGC — the Bari-Uma Ramen.

    Being the loyal Dalagang Pilipina (LOL), who prefers Sinigang na Baboy, Adobo, Tinola over other cuisines, you would know that I am really not a fan of ramen. Plus, I remember eating ramen for the first time in this popular ramen restaurant — I think I spent more than PHP 600.00 for a bowl and I was disappointed with the taste and the noodles. I don’t know if I ate it late but I didn’t even finish even a quarter of it.

    But when an invitation came for a ramen review, I immediately said yes! Let’s give ramen another chance, shall we? Self? LOL.

    Why ‘Bari-Uma’ Ramen?

    Bari-Uma Ramen actually originated in Hiroshima, Japan in 2003. They are famous for theirtonkotsu shoyu base, which is tagged as Japan’s “strongest tonkotsu broth” (meaning the most flavorful in Japanese).

    Also, ‘Bari’ means super and “Uma” means tasty in Japanese. Yes, Super Tasty indeed.

    Bari-Uma is also present in neighboring countries like Hongkong,
    Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and of course, Japan.

    Bari-Uma Ramen Details

    Before we start about our experience, here are some of the restaurant’s details that you shouldn’t miss.

    • Location: Ground Floor, Serendra, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City
    • Mobile Number: +63 9063360930
    • Opening hours: 11am – 10pm
    • Average Cost: PHP1300 for two people (approx.)
    • Cuisines: Japanese

    Bari-Uma Ramen is housed in Serendra, BGC, Taguig City. To exercise your imagination, if you are familiar in BGC, if you will be coming from High Street going to Serendra, Bari-Uma is at your right, and if from Market! Market!, you need to check the left side.

    Because I can already call myself a BGC girl since I’m currently working there, I dind’t have any diffifulty in finding the place. Plus, there are lots of kind Kuya guards around the area that you can ask naman.

    Upon entrance, you would notice the smiling staff of already guiding you to the vacant tables.

    What I love about the place even if it’s a little small is that you will immediately feel the Japanese vibes because of it’s interior designs.

    The place is quite small and there are just a few customers enjoying their ramen (I think it was around 1 PM then). Though if I remember correctly, I heard that when it’s lunch and dinner time, the place usually gets full.

    So, be there early, ramen lover!

    What to eat at Bari-Uma?

    Aside from their super tasty ramens, they have other Japanese dishes that will surely satisfy you. Mind you, I got so full that day!

    Pia’s Thoughts

    As mentioned above, I am really not a fan of Japanese ramen maybe because of my first experience. However, I’m happy that I gave ramen a chance because I am now craving for Kara-Tama-Uma! I really love the spice and the tenderness of the meat. Same with their Yakitori. Their house blend iced tea is also a surprise for me. I actually wanted to ask for a second glass. Haha!

    Anyway, overall, I love how tasty, not just the ramens are, but every dish that was served to us. Will definitely be back!
