Kenji Tei is another Greenbelt restaurant that I celebrated my birthday in, a very long time ago. I believe it was one of the very first restaurants that served authentic Japanese ramen, even before the Metro Manila ramen craze happened. They started out in BF Homes first, before opening up a shop in Greenbelt. They currently have a third branch located in Solenad/Nuvali in Tagaytay.

Spicy Negi Ramen – Spicy miso based broth topped with Negi slices and chashu. The spiciness of the broth was a bit overwhelming at times, but it still satiated my ramen cravings (Which are bound to happen quite often because of the rainy season). And chashu! I love chashu.

Cheese Gyoza – Fried gyoza with a cream cheese center. Pretty great, even though I’m not really a fan of deep-fried gyoza, to be perfectly honest.

Crispy Chicken Teriyaki – Grilled crispy chicken glazed in teriyaki sauce. Like the gyoza, this dish was really addicting.

So if you’re in the Greenbelt area and craving for some delicious ramen (or Japanese food in general), then Kenji Tei is sure to fill up your stomach with their dishes. I can actually see this place gaining more customers during the next couple of months thanks to the cool weather.
