  • It’s official: Toronto is experiencing ramen mania. This year alone we’ve seen the opening of New York noodle giant Momofuku, along with ramen-houses such as Kinton and Sansotei. Meanwhile, the team that brought us Yours Truly is set to open a ramen shop come December, and Ramen Raijin, from the owners of Vancouver favorite Kintaro, is opening on Gerrard Street soon. And now we can add Santouka Ramen to the list.

  • Over at Bloor and Clinton in Koreatown, Japas opened in the old Camto corner lot on Wednesday. The concept: a Japanese tapas and oyster bar with plenty of Japanese beer and cocktails flowing. It’s also meant to be distinctly un-izakaya in nature (read: no yelling and no gongs) while offering a fun, casual space for people to meet and share a few bites over drinks.

  • As patrons drift into Kingyo Toronto, each party is greeted with an enthusiastic chorus of "Irashaimase!" The latest addition to Cabbagetown’s culinary landscape, Kingyo is, in fact, a transplant from Vancouver.

  • When it comes to ramen in Toronto, choices have been scant compared to the bounty of New York City, with its Ippudo and Totto Ramen, or even Vancouver, with its Kintaro Ramen Noodle or Motomachi Shokudo. But now Toronto has a new player in the ramen scene: Kinton Ramen, opened last week in Baldwin Village, which aims to do away with the misconception of ramen as instant food that hails from plastic packages.

  • Fans of Baldwin Village’s Kinton Ramen know that it’s a pork lover’s spot. There, thick pork bone broth comes with heaps of pork belly or pork shoulder, and customers can request how much pork fat they want added to their soup (“rich” means a lot, “light” means less).

  • Konjiki’s original Tokyo spot has been included in Michelin’s Bib Gourmand guide for four years in a row, and when chef Atsushi Yamamoto led the Toronto expansion, the lines formed immediately.

  • Ramen Isshin brings true authentic ramen to three locations across Toronto (College Street, Queen West and Assembly Chef’s Hall). The signature dish is the wok-fried red miso ramen, but Ramen Isshin also has other exotic offerings like white sesame shio ramen and tsukemen (a.k.a. dipping ramen). Ramen Isshin also offers a large selection of vegetarian

  • Koji Zenimaru may be a relative latecomer to Toronto’s ramen scene, but what he lacks in timeliness he makes up for in dedication. In researching noodles for Ramen Isshin, his new restaurant on College Street, Zenimaru spent six months tasting different varieties — around 900, in total — before finally settling on two. That’s right, 900 types of noodles.

  • While Toronto doesn’t have any Michelin stars or Michelin-recommended eateries, we’ve inherited some from afar and Ramen Misoya is just one of said restaurants hailing all the way from Japan. With over 100 locations worldwide, you bet they have their ramen down to an art. As you may have guessed by its name, Ramen Misoya

  • Ryus Noodle bar relocated to Bloor and Broadview after a fire took its original location on Baldwin out of commission.
