Mitsuyado Sei-Men Restaurant
Project Type: Commercial, Restaurant
Location: Taguig City, Metro Manila
Nothing screams Japanese food more than a steaming bowl of ramen. Mitsuyado Sei-men was founded in 2005, and now one of the biggest ramen restaurants across Asia. A closely related friend of the typical ramen is the tsukemen which is basically eaten differently by dipping the noodles in a separate bowl of broth or soup. This ramen place in Taguig serves the best Tsukemen in town. Dubbed as the house of tsukemen in the Philippines, one sip of their scrumptious ramen immediately transports your palette to Japan and wallows your eyes in a streetscape replication of Tokyo’s old town.
Mitsuyado Sei-Men Restaurant sets itself apart from other ramen restaurants in the country because of its unique interior inspired by Shin-Yokohama Rāmen Museum. This kind of Japanese interior is dated back from the year 1958 known as Shitamachi. It’s dark interior and wooden furnishings are well balanced out by colorful 20th century Japanese posters and Ukiyo-e paintings of Samurais and Sumo wrestlers. The prominent use of corrugated galvanized iron sheet on the concrete walls adds the rustic element. Roofs of traditional Japanese house on top of installed glass partition for an eat-and-watch design concept resembles the traditional Japanese Ramen house. The interior of this Japanese restaurant in Taguig is a quirky mixed of traditional Japanese streets and industrial style relevant to this day.
