Ramen head

Ramen has to be one of my favourite foods. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For me it is all about the broth.

Four Types of Ramen

  • Shio Ramen (Salt-based)
  • Shoyu Ramen (Soy sauce-based)
  • Miso Ramen (Soybean-based)
  • Tonkotsu Ramen (Pork bone-based)

If you want to see a documentary about ramen then you have to see the documentary called “Ramen Heads”.

RAMEN HEADS (2017 MOVIE) OFFICIAL TRAILOR

The documentary centers on the chef Osama Tomita the king on ramen and the steps taken to make amazing broth and noodles. I wanted to have some ramen after watching the documentary.

Below are some of the restaurants that I have been to to enjoy a bowl of ramen noodles:

Sansotei Ramen

The broth in the Tonkotsu at Sansotei has to be my all time favourite. I have not had anything else that compares. Be prepared to wait in line to get a seat, but it is worth it!!!!

CHASHU, BLACK FUNGUS,
EGG, GREEN ONION

Konjiki Ramen

The location in North York Toronto is the first North American location of the Michelin star Japanese restaurant. It was good, but not great. I would love to try the Lobster Ramen (available only on Wednesday). Sounds decadent.

Akashiro

I was in the Eaton Center and I was hungry and I wanted something to eat. The food court was really full so I decided to try the Japanese restaurant that I had never eaten at before. I was looking forward to having the ramen, but I did not like the broth. Thank goodness I had the sushi to eat.
