Ryerson alumni know well the comfort food that awaits them at this cozy downtown purveyor of this much-loved student staple. The noodle main player is tender and tasty; the broth in which it swims a fragrant bath of steamy cheer. Married together in a deep ceramic bowl, the dish is as hearty and satisfying as a bellyful of home. Spicy options abound, but pork is almost always featured. The rich, pork-cheek-packed Toroniku Ramen signature dish, in particular, never disappoints. The place buzzes, particularly at lunch, but service is speedy and efficient. If you haven't mastered the chopstick dance that will deliver noodle to mouth, consider traveling with a bib.more...
(Salt Flavor)Shio Ramen is our signature ramen which is mild and creamy soup seasoned with salt. Shio Ramen is our only ramen that is topped off with a Japanese pickled plum.
(Soybean Paste Flavor)Miso Ramen soup is made from a mixture of pork broth and a rich and hearty miso paste. We use different pork broth than the Shio Ramen to bring out the miso flavour.
(Soy Sauce Flavor)Shoyu Ramen soup is made from a mixture of pork broth and soy sauce. Dried seaweed is used as a topping only for Shoyu Ramen to bring out its flavour. Our cha-shu is simmered in soy sauce, so its flavour will stand out in our Shoyu Ramen soup.
Tokusen Toroniku Ramen
(Choice Pork Ramen)Toroniku Ramen is our signature ramen which has the toppings served separately. Toroniku Cha-shu is simmered pork cheek (jowl) meat. Pork cheek meat is very rare and only 200-300g can be taken from each pig. It has a very rich flavour and it is tender like fatty tuna.
This is a chain of restaurants with locations all over Japan, Hong Kong, USA, and thankfully, Canada. Situated opposite Ryerson University at Yonge and Dundas Square, this humble spot will peak your ramen radar for one sole reason – Santouka’s Kara miso ramen & Ikura rice bowl. This dish is a smashing hit not only for its flavourful pork portions, but also for its side bowl of salmon roe on rice which is a burst of colour, texture and taste.
