About Kenji Tei
Years ago, before ramen became famous in our country, there was a ramen house that served different kinds of ramen and Japanese favorites. This restaurant is based here in our country and is actually established here, unlike the other Japanese restaurants that are mushrooming in our country that are Japanese franchises. In 2008, Kenji Tei was born. This is an original concept of brothers and business partners Kenneth and Richard Kho. Their very first restaurant is located in Paranaque City, in BF Homes.
After the success of their first shop, they opened another branch in Makati City by the year 2011, and then their first location moved to the Alabang town center in 2012. Richard Kho is the one who actually worked in Japan while learning about the food and cuisine. They decided to share what they love, and customers began to acknowledge their delicious food, and the rest is history. While new brands are Japanese franchises, the owner of Kenji Tei is proud of their products, and according to Kenneth, their products can be compared to other Japanese franchised brands or are even better than those since they took into consideration what Filipinos will like, which is the reason for their success and popularity.
Kenji Tei Menu Best Seller
Gomoku shio – Based on our server that day Gomoku shio is one of their bestsellers. I ordered a Regular and this is really good. This bowl is topped with fish, squid a slice of chashu and some vegetables. The broth is clear and very light a norm for a shio ramen. surprisingly delicious once you take a sip. noodles of their gomoku shio are firm, with toppings, including vegetables and, are perfectly cooked. This is a decent bowl of ramen that is quite fair and affordable. I will order this once again, and it will become my new favorite. Though there are lots of options, I will stick with this one.
Salmon sashimi – Kenji Tei’s version of salmon sashimi has 8 slices of fresh salmon sashimi with radish ribbons as the design of the presentation. Kenji Tei did a great job on this because the salmon sashimi is really fresh. It has a slightly sweet taste because, as I said, it’s fresh. This one is a good choice if you love sashimi, and for sure you won’t be disappointed with this. They serve this with a dipping sauce. I almost finished everything and forgot to share it with my friend. This is refreshing.

California Maki – Kenji Tei’s version of California Maki is also a great choice if you ever visit their restaurant. They serve their California Maki with 8 pieces of standard Maki size. I noticed that their California Maki is compact and well pressed, retaining its shape even if you dip it in soy sauce. The ingredients that they used are fresh. It also has tobiko to add crunch and wonderful flavor to your sushi. The only complaint that I have about this is that I already finished the eight pieces of California Maki and I want more.
