Marutama Ramen | Dining in Vancouver

Simple, cozy and delicious! The ramen is honest and the broth is flavourful. A hearty bowl of noodles is just what you need during this fall weather! Hit up Marutama Ramen on Robson Street, in downtown Vancouver to satisfy those ramen cravings. The egg is fantastic and the rest of the toppings are standard. With so many different ramen shops in town, it's hard to narrow down the good ones, but Marutama Ramen is indeed one of them. Enjoy!

Ganso!

Welcome to Brooklyn, NY. - home to many up and coming Ramen joints, and already well established ones too.

Ganso specializes in soy sauce based broths with their ramen. They make chicken wings (probably deep fried twice) that are finger-lickin' good. Belly pork buns with a korean twist and another set with short ribs. The food is great and the portions of the ramen are perfect (not too big and not too small). You could order a second if you're really hungry (I probably would if I was really hungry the day I went). If the egg in a bowl of ramen is important to you (as it is to me,) depending on what ramen you order you get a soft boiled or a really REALLY soft boiled egg... almost poached but not. There is a short rib ramen and the Ganso original (which is simply pork shoulder and pork belly like most ramen joints).  Moreover, there is a spicy ramen and what they call the "Stamina" ramen bowl, which consists of a chicken broth. You can take a look at their menu here.  On the way to the restroom at the back,  I spotted their fridge with all their sake products inside - not bad!

I love Ippudo Ramen but Ganso has definitely made it into my good books. Gotta love ramen!

Sansotei Ramen is a new hot spot for ramen fans. Your choice of thick, thin or original Sansotei noodles and with different toppings. Your typical Pork broth with egg, scallions, and menma too! Menma is definitely a must with ramen for me, and I was pleased to finally see that Toronto is getting it right! The pork that comes with your ramen can also be chosen from  lean to fatty. Sansotei offers gyoza as well as takoyaki (octopus balls). Super reasonable for the large bowl of noodles you get and you have to get there early! Otherwise, go at off times (like the hours of 2pm-5pm). You could be waiting from 10mins to 45mins!! It's thumbs up for Sansotei - you guys will for sure be my go-to for a late lunch!
