Horin Ramen + Sake is bringing Fukuoka style ramen straight from Japan to Vancouver. The set-up here is quite similar to Ichiran Ramen in Japan, in where you get to choose how well done you’d like your noodles, the amount of dashi, housemade chili blend and lard.
The noodles are made in house and you can see them being made through a glass window at the front of the restaurant. Their menu is streamlined and uncomplicated with ramen, gyoza, and rice on offer. There is the option to combo up for a few extra dollars.
Ajitama Ramen – soft boiled egg marinated in housemade TARE seasoning, chili sauce, chashu and green onions ($12.10)
The egg was perfectly cooked with a lovely golden gooey yolk. I love my noodles on the hard side, and these were done exactly to my specifications. The flavour was spot on and I really enjoyed this bowl of noodles!
I went when they first opened and have been back several times since. The quality has always been consistent and the service is quick and friendly.
