Some ramen news from Vancouver 'hound and rameniac, Kentan:
Thanks for the "heads up".
I'll keep my eyes open to see where they are opening up.
Chuckled reading Kentan's post as growing up in Montreal I was introduced to Japanese food by a family who had been "displaced" to the east as a result of their forced removal from their Prince Rupert boats by the second world war....did not experience ramen per se and yes, most of what I recollect regarding noodles was "slurping" udon.
Yes! Thanks for the heads up fmed & Kentan! I'll definitely make the drive up to check them out :)
re: Dan G
They are in the same league as the Japan-based ramen mini-chains such as Setagaya and Santouka - and perhaps a few notches below the top-dog Ippudo. They are all stylistically different in terms of broth and noodle. (Sanpachi's ramen, for example, is prepared in the Sapporo style - thicker noodle and famous miso broth. Sapporo is where miso ramen originated.). Linking to Rameniac's excellent ramen site: http://www.rameniac.com/ramen_styles/...
I have yet to make it there, but I don't doubt at all that it will be about as good as the Vancouver outpost of Santouka - which makes my favourite ramen in the city.
Keep an eye out for the future Edmonton location in the local Japanese press.
