JAEU Bistro and Ramen Bar Review
Have you been to a restaurant that offers 2 completely different cuisines? Nah, I am not talking about a fusion restaurant. Actually, I am talking about JAEU Bistro and Ramen Bar.
JAEU Bistro and Ramen Bar offers both Japanese and European dishes, thus the name – JA which stands for Japanese, and EU which stands for Europe. Nice play of words, don’t you think? Anyway, at Jaeu Bistro and Ramen Bar, you get two enjoy the best of two culinary worlds – ramen and steak specifically.
JAEU Bistro and Ramen Bar food options are pretty limited and straightforward. Prices are also reasonable. Provided below are some of the food we ordered:
JAEU Bistro appetizers are divided into two – Hot and Cold Starters. The serving is good for one so make sure to have an extra plate if you want to share. We ordered two hot starters:
5 pieces of gyoza (₱195) – This was the best among the dishes that we ordered. JAEU Bistro and Ramen Bar gyoza can be ordered pan-seared or steamed. We ordered the pan-seared style because we want it a little crusty on the outside. It had a light but tasty filling which is perfect for stimulation of the appetite.
Chicken Karaage with Cabbage Salad (₱135 for the half serving) – We love the crispy texture on the outside with light breading and the juiciness of chicken meat on the inside. This serving was surprisingly good that it can actually be partnered with rice and serve as a viand.
JAEU Bistro and Ramen Bar has various ramen options to choose from. They have Tonkotsu Base, Soupless, and House Special Ramen. Since owners of JAEU Bistro and Ramen Bar are doctors, they also made sure a healthier version of ramen for health-conscious individuals is available. The Gluten-free Ramen (P390) has Shoyo-based (soy sauce) broth and comes with sweet corn, roasted tofu, onion, spinach, nori, and raw garlic.
We ordered 2 bowls of tonkatsu-based (pork bone broth) ramen:
Spicy Miso (₱410) – This ramen came with curly thick noodles, Chinese cabbage, bean sprouts, ground pork, negi, chasu, nori, and raw garlic.
Iekei Yokohama Style Ramen (₱380) – This ramen offered thick noodles, spinach, negi, white onion, menma, black garlic, roasted chasu, and nori. If you want the spicy version, order the Hell Ramen “Jigoku” (₱400). It is served with JAEU’s special chili oil with a spiciness level of 1 to 5.
For ₱1,120, we can say that we had a great meal. We got what we expected and paid for. We are very much willing to be back and try some of their European food options, especially their best-seller steak paired with fries.
THE PLACE – JAEU BISTRO LOCATION
Jaeu Bistro and Ramen Bar
Upper G/Floor Expansion Wing, Festival Mall
Filinvest City, Muntinlupa City
The place was clean and well-lit with a casual and relaxed ambiance on the inside. Outside, you will find the Tokyo Tower and the Eiffel Tower.
Like the restaurant name, the layout of the property also covers two sides – red comfy couches blended with a dark and classy feel to show the Europe side; light colors of tables and chairs and minimalist features for the Japan side.
The service was commendable. You can feel a personal touch of customer care from the staff.
Love. Eat. Wander. Verdict
Compared to most ramen joints that we featured in this blog, JAEU Bistro and Ramen Bar’s ramen options have inferior quality. However, they still have other good-quality dishes that are worth coming back for. We will definitely go back to have a taste of their talk-of-the-town steak.
