Expect line-ups for a reason!

My boyfriend and I lined up here for lunch earlier this month (2nd visit), and had their miso (medium) ramen and he had the shio ramen. We both chose fatty pork which comes with the ramen for added flavour. There are always line-ups outside their door and you can't help but think it must be good if there are a dozen other ramen shops in the same vicinity with zero line-ups at others! They are extremely busy. If you are parking, expect to put enough coins in the meter to stay at least 1.5 hours (line-up time, wait time after ordering, eat time). They are a Japanese run shop with all-Japanese staff, and have the best ramen I have ever had. Next time, I will have their miso ramen (again) with their heavy base for more richness in the broth. Stay away from their gyoza, however. They buy this frozen from a supermarket and it tastes cheap.

Where to get your noodle on in Vancouver

Where to get your noodle on in Vancouver

Kintaro is one of the original ramen noodle shops in Vancouver. Their beloved miso ramen – which can be customized with rich, medium or light broth and fat or lean chashu – keeps customers coming back. The ramen here is served Tokyo-style with a pork-broth base, so if pork isn't your favourite flavour, try the chicken-broth noodle bowls at Kintaro's sister shop Motomachi Shokudo just down the street.

Great ramen houses to get your noodle fix in Vancouver

Kintaro Ramen is one of Vancouver’s original ramenyas, having introduced the Japanese noodle dish to many and sparking an explosion of ramen houses across the city. Kintaro is a no-nonsense ramen shop, with a minimalist décor that features bare concrete walls and an open kitchen where ramen chefs work efficiently in plain view. Specializing in authentic Japanese comfort food, pork-based broths are Kintaro’s signature and their ramen bowls are considered near-perfect by Vancouver’s most discerning connoisseurs.
