There are no outstanding ramen places in Calgary. I am so glad that there is a large variety in Toronto. My sister took me to Kinton Ramen, in Baldwin Village. It is small, with everyone sitting at communal tables. The atmosphere is much like a Izakaya with the staff shouting greetings as you leave over the general din. The broth is very good and tasted like it had been stewing for days.
I had the Shiro Ramen with the rich broth and pork belly. The noodles were nice and chewy. The pork was cooked perfectly, and the broth was not too salty.
I tried my sister’s Spicy Garlic Ramen. Nice kick with the heat and full garlic flavor. We also tried the Gyoza which was hot and flavorful. I would say that this is a very good ramen place and worth another visit.
Sadly, I did not finish my soup otherwise I would have been a Kinton Bowler.
