Signature Happiness Ramen from Hanamaruken
Among the many ramen options at Hanamaruken, their Signature Happiness Ramen stands out the most. You wouldn’t find it anywhere else, according to restaurant owner Charles Paw. “We really focus on our meat toppings,” he shared. “The soft-bone pork rib topping is a rare-cut pork ingredient, and we took advantage of this by slowly braising it to make it almost melt in your mouth.”
Because it’s their bestselling variant, Hanamaruken has also made other options with the same meat toppings. Their Signature Happiness Ramen rice bowl and their DIY Home Kits will bring you a taste of comfort food, wherever you choose to enjoy it.
Arroz Meloso de Rabo de Buey from Bueno Tapas & Wine
For Chef Ken Alfonso, the Paella (Arroz Meloso de Rabo de Buey) was the dish that started Bueno Tapas & Wine. “It was evident to me that I wanted to bring back home the best and the fullest of my Spanish culinary experiences in Madrid, Barcelona, and San Sebastian, by recreating a comforting dish from these regions.”
Foodies who are craving for spicy food that hit a little close to home will surely delight in their offerings, especially those who love their rice. “Paella just gives so much color and depth to consuming grains, it elevates the whole experience,” shares Chef Ken. There’s just no better way to satisfy your appetite.
Pizza from Tartufo Ristorante
Perfecting pizza dough is no easy feat, and it was a challenge that Chef Ken gladly took on. At Tartufo Ristorante, the pizza is all about catering to the Filipino palate. “This was certainly among the many things that I wanted to make sure we would be able to nail right off the bat.”
And indeed, their pizza options are well-loved within the Rockwell community over at The Grove. “It was well worth going above and beyond for,” Chef Ken proudly says.
