Miso Ten

Miso Ten takes its name from the two main items it serves, miso ramen and tendon or rice toppings.

It's not as expensive as more popular places which serve ramen. A bowl typically costs less than PHP300. The restaurant should improve their menu because while there are five choices of ramen, there was no explanation as to how they're different from each other. i had to ask the waiter to describe each. We ordered the Miso-Ten Original (PHP275) and found it quite filling, a little salty but good although not as impressive as Ramen Bar's or SumoSam's.

There are several options for add-ons. We ordered Roast Chicken (PHP35) which was served on the side rather than on top of the ramen as I expected it would be. There were 4 strips of tender roast chicken drizzled in what appears to be teriyaki sauce. I think this offers good value for money as it could be a main dish by itself.

Add On: Roast Chicken

We also ordered Seafood Tendon (PHP220) which is composed of 1 ebi, 1 kani, 1 squid, 1 asohos on a bed of rice drizzled with tempura sauce. The dish was very filling but typical tempura. I think they should serve tempura sauce on the side for people who want their food less dry.

Hot tea and water were served on the house. A can of Pepsi Light set me back PHP50.

The restaurant occupies a small area in the 2nd floor al fresco section of Robinson's Magnolia. It accomodates around 30 people in the indoor seating area with more seats available al fresco. It has an open kitchen so diners sitting by the bar can watch the chefs af work.

Service wise, they were very attentive and accomodating of requests such as change of reservations and seats.
