With the pandemic still looming over us and strict protocols limiting the places we can go to (for good reason), it’s only normal for our food cravings to grow by the minute, especially if you had a penchant for dining in restaurants. Now, if ramen just so happens to be part of that growing checklist, you might want to check out this traveling Japanese food truck called Harakiri’s Kamikaze Truck.
FYI, this mobile food venture didn’t start out this way! It was initially a hole-in-the-wall in Taft that vowed to serve the best ramen in the locale. The customers who frequented their humble food joint were students from De La Salle University, De La Salle-College of St. Benilde, or alumni of the said campuses.
However, with everyone now quarantining indoors, the two spearheaders of the business, Chef J and Chef Jed, decided to take their passion on the road. Driven by their desire to serve great food and for everyone to experience their delicious offerings, the two resident cooks have taken their business wherever a ramen fix is needed. Think of far flung locations of the South like Bicol and Laguna, to more familiar Northern vicinities like Quirino Avenue in Manila. FYI, they’ve been hitting the road and serving quality dishes for eight months now.
Customer feedback regarding their big bowls of scrumptious ramen usually revolve around the adjectives ‘rich, soulful and simply chef’s kiss.’ Their bestsellers include Tantanmen, which is described by the Chef Jed as “a warming hug from the perfect blend of mellow nutty sweetness from Sesame paste and Soymilk, merged together with Rayu Chili oil.” Another hit ramen flavor of theirs is the Tonkotsu, which is pegged as the store’s spin of the classic south region broth served with their very own signature toppings.
In addition to their customer’s favorites, they also serve fried gyoza and more of all the good stuff you want in your ramen, including extra noodles, chasu, tamago or mushrooms. They even encourage you to think out of the box and make special requests to personalize your bowl!
With their new and improved booking system, summoning this Japanese food truck just became more seamless. By simply filling out their online form and pre-ordering a minimum of three bowls of any ramen of your choice, or the Kamikaze Bundle for â‚±999, you can get Harakiri’s Kamikaze Truck at your preferred destination in a jiffy!
