New ramen place coming on West Broadway

Zoomed by today and all I saw was a "Q" in the name. Btwn Granville and Fir. Praying it is good -- so close to work!!

  1. Dang, I was at Oscar Books yesterday and didn't even look around. On the south side perhaps ?

    1. Interesting things are happening in the Vancouver soup world. The West side has all the good ramen and the East side has all the good pho.

        Burgoo on Main is on the "east" side ;-)

          It's on the north side. I'll try to scope it out tomorrow -- should have written it down as soon as I parked.

            Went by on Sunday. It's called Q-Go Ramen (signage already up, windows papered over). 1443 West Broadway. Praying to the Ramen Shamans it will be good.

              Me too! It's about four blocks away from my place.

                "Ramen Shamans"

                Sounds like a cool new band !

                  It's about thirty seconds from me. My Japanese visitor and I went by there and he wondered why you'd call a ramen place 9 5.

                  Something to speculate about. 4 and 9 are unlucky.

                      I think the feeling is more like 急GO, with kyuu meaning fast. Get a quick meal and be on your way.

                      Hmm...maybe it'll be a stand-up ramen joint. That would be a first for Vancouver! Somehow I don't see it happening outside of downtown though.
