Kenchan Ramen House in Talon, Las Piñas

Kenchan Ramen House in Talon, Las Piñas

South Peeps, there is a ramen place tucked within one of the many neighborhoods in Las Piñas. It goes by the name Kenchan Ramen House. Now, pardon me for the lack of knowledge about where this place exactly is. I know Las Piñas is huge, but if it helps, this one is a few walks from Times. Anyway, I've also located it via Google Maps which you can find at the end of this post.

Kenchan Ramen House in Talon, Las Piñas

We visited our dearest friend in Las Piñas for the opening of Kuya A's Kitchenette. As a typical South culture, we just chilled in his home and watched some tear-jerking film while the rain was quietly falling outside. This also made the air colder and the mood more laid back. As a person who responds quickly to this kind of stimulus, I suddenly craved for something hot -- no, it was more specific than that. And yes, you got it right. Ramen.

We initially eyed for a different Ramen Store, but since that one closed down already (which name I didn't even catch), we looked for an alternative. That's how we ended up here in Kenchan.

Casual Neighborhood Ramen Place
Given that this is tucked within a neighborhood, the interiors are pretty much basic and with limited seating capacity. In my estimate, it can sit only 7 people inside and additional 4 outside. That's a total of 11. Anyway, this simplicity made us feel even more laid back, so we're good.

For the food, what they have are mostly ramen bowls, but they also have a few side dishes such as gyoza and karaage. Now, since we were only craving for ramen during that evening, we didn't order anything else.

Tonkotsu Ramen of Kenchan Ramen House

The Tonkotsu Ramen (P235) had a broth that captured the typical authentic taste expected from a tonkotsu ramen -- rich deep meaty flavors. It might have lacked viscosity since the broth do not grip well on the noodles. I also think that the noodles was slightly overcooked as it lacked the usual firmness. Had it been firm, the broth could have held on more to it. Hence, I suggest that you request your noodles to be "undercooked". The egg was also a little underwhelming (as you can see in the photo, it was simply boiled nothing more).

Overall, it was still okay, since it was able to satisfy my cravings somehow. Plus, I see potential.

Chili Ramen of Kenchan Ramen House

The Chili Ramen (P269) had the same features as the one above, but the primary difference is of course the infusion of chili in its broth. I loved how the chili enhanced the flavor. It was not the painful kind of spiciness, so you may love that. It was great for a chilly night, and I prefer this over the Tonkotsu due to the additional layer of taste from the chili.

Kenchan Ramen House
may not be as spectacular as the more mainstream ramen places, but with the price level, it was decent enough to satisfy your ramen cravings. Plus, it's very accessible for those who live around the area. You no longer need to go to let's say SM Southmall for a decent ramen. I'd surely love to try their other bowls here, and maybe suggest some ideas to them.
