Boodle Bites: Tamagoya Noodle House

I am not a huge fan of Japanese foods. I cannot tolerate eating raw or slightly cooked foods since I feel like I’m gonna end up having indigestion. Feasting on noodles or ramen is a different story though.

When we visited Hong Kong last July, Ramen was one of the things that we enjoyed there. My daughter Noa likes noodles a lot as well. So when my husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary last month, we decided to try dining at Tamagoya Noodle House.

Tamagoya Noodle House’s claim: Homegrown taste from Hokkaido (Japan) at a reasonable price.

Where’s Tamagoya Noodle House located?

Luckily, this budding noodle house is within our reach in terms of location. Tamagoya Noodle House location is at #2 V.V. Soliven Avenue, Greenheights Newtown, Mayamot, Antipolo City. Don’t get intimidated when you here the word Antipolo City because in reality, it is on the boundary of SSS Village Marikina City before going up to Antipolo.

Tamagoya Noodle House tried its best to look like a Japanese food house since it made use of woods and various elements like lanterns to get that Japanese vibe that they are aiming for. We went on a Tuesday so it was less crowded. We got a parking slot though the guest parking space was a bit small for me.

There’s a menu posted just right next to the entrance door.

We asked for a table for 7 that day and we were ushered to the second floor of the resto. As soon as we were settled, we were given the menu.

So what did we order? Here we go.

I am not a huge fan of vegetable salads or coleslaw per se but I think Tamagoya’s vegetable salad is better than Yabu’s. I love this!

Tamagoya Noodle House’s Vegetable Salad – P88

Gomoku Nanban Ramen (Spicy Seafood Noodles) – P198

We panicked a little as to the level of its spiciness so we played safe by ordering the un-spicy version.

Tamagoya Gomoku Ramen – P178

Between the 2 versions of the Gomoku Ramen, my declared winner is the Gomoku Nanban. Its spiciness was perfect for me! It was that tolerable level of spiciness, perhaps a kick? I find the Gomoku Ramen quite boring after tasting the Gomoku Nanban. Serving is huge, too. A bowl is already satisfying on its own. My husband and I even shared.

The Verdict?

Need I say more if we liked Tamagoya Noodle House?

Tamagoya Noodle House Aftermath

We didn’t bother to order desserts because we feel so full. Oh, before I forget, they also have Onirigi (Rice Balls). This is something I should try next time.

To satisfy 7 huge people in my family and spent roughly P1,200, I must say that Tamagoya Noodle House is indeed “Pop na pop!” for us. Are we ever coming back to eat here again?

The empty bowls of noodles and rice above will speak for us.

And oh, brace yourself for quite a queue if you’re planning to visit on a weekend. Trust me because we’ve attempted several times on doing that but we did not succeed. Visit Tamagoya Noodle House on weekdays except Monday.
