Coincidentally I wound up at Momofuku again this past Saturday. I hadn't been in a bit over a year and it's still as good as ever. I went in a little after 10pm and it was still absolutely packed to the upstairs. I tried the Chicken Tan Tan and it was quite a tasty, spicy and refreshing change from the usual Pork ramen. My wife had the Pork ramen and it was still as good as ever. We also shared the Shiitake buns and they were fantastic. Bill came out to about $55 after tax and tip which like I mentioned before is pricier than most Ramen spots in the city but worth the experience imo. I will probably be back a couple more times over the winter.antihero wrote: ↑Nov 29th, 2017 4:10 amI agree with ReeGee - Toronto is not the place to do ramen.
That being said - unless you find yourself in NYC or Oz - we do have Momofuku, which Vancouver and a lot of place don't. The ramen there is always decent - probably good to try the place that caused the ramen craze in N.A. Chang & Gang rely a lot of smoking to develop flavors in their bowl. I'm personally all about the subtleties of the broth - I usually get half salt Shios, which is why Momofuku is not the place for me, but I do partake during sale times (Winterlicious/Summerlicious).
Just a reference point as to where my tastes lie - I think Santouka is the best in Toronto, followed by Sensotei.
Btw it's not that I think Toronto isn't the place to do Ramen, I think we have some great places here, but they probably aren't remarkably better or different from what he's already had in Vancouver aside from Momofuku
