Asian Bites is a Japanese restaurant. Variations on ramen, donburi, and sashimi/sushi, as well as a few appetizers – all made to order. Cheap, most dishes hovering around 100 pesos (a couple bucks and change).
Much to my pleasant surprise, the Miso Ramen was quite nice. Didn’t really taste at all like miso, more like tonkotsu. Not much depth, but reasonably rich in flavor. With a touch of spice for added dimension. The noodles were okay, just a step up from instant, but good enough. Improperly cooked, resulting in a few clumped noodles, no biggie. Biggest surprise in TERRP thus far. And at 105 pesos, the cheapest meal and best value in TERRP thus far. Totally worth going back to try other items, before grocery shopping, if only to avoid needless purchases based on hunger.
