#FOOD: KINTON RAMEN – FLAVOURFUL NOODLES ON-THE-GO
Following the explosive success of their Guu Izakaya Franchise, Kinton Ramen makes Noodles festive and exciting here in Toronto – giving us an authentic, rich taste of cultural staple in Japan. The Noodle Shop, meant as a quick and affordable option for those on-the-go and if it isn’t those delightfully chewy and bouncy Noodles which keep you coming back to the narrow Baldwin Street Establishment, it will that impeccably savoury 20-hour-simmered Soup Base – a balanced Harmony of Fish, Vegetable, Pork and Chicken Broths. Diners get the choice of Miso, Shio (Sea Salt), Shoyu (Soy Sauce) and Spicy Garlic Soups for their Noodles and I enjoyed immensely the Shoyu.
My Neighbours seemed to enjoy their Appetizer of Hot Karage (Fried Chicken), while I took joy in their thin-wrapped Gyoza Dumplings. Although Vegetarian options exist for those who absolutely must, you’d be foolish not to try either their tender and meaty Pork Belly or Pork Shoulder Add-ons.
Like Guu Izakaya, Patrons are greeted with enthusiasm as they come and go but sadly the wait also can be lengthy for a spot at their Communal Tables/Bar Stools.
Kinton Ramen is located at 51 Baldwin Street in Toronto. Visit their Official Website for more.
