You can’t have a ‘best of’ ramen list without including this joint. The ramen bar has a plethora of options to fulfill any ramen lover, including lobster, chicken wonton and spicy chicken varieties. They even have vegan ramen, so there really is something for everyone.

Check them out right in the heart of downtown Vancouver at 541 Robson Street.


Ramen Danbo

Late night eats anyone? Head over to this eatery for some comfort food in a cozy setting. They have all the ramen varieties you could ever dream of but are best known for their Chasu-men ramen. The bowl comes with six pieces of mouth-watering braised pork belly.

A place so good it’s even had some famous clientele. Former Game of Thrones cast member Jason Momoa has been vocal about his love of this ramen spot (even going there for breakfast) and it’s really put the restaurant on the map.

A notorious spot in Richmond, and definitely a local favourite. This restaurant is reminiscent of authentic dimly lit Tokyo back alley ramen joints. Diners describes the experience as resembling a true Japanese noodle bar, with quick service, great chicken karage and tonkotsu, and extra umame awesomeness with the miso tonkostu.

There are two locations in Richmond, one at 8391 Alexandra Rd #1160 and one in Steveston at 3711 Bayview St.
