A ramen joint made popular in Toronto is finally opening its very first Vancouver location. Mark your calendar for the first week of August when Kinton Ramen soft opens at the University of British Columbia.

Given that this place is all about comfort food, we have a feeling it will be a big hit among UBC students and those living nearby.

  • Maze Maze Mazemen ($14.95): A brothless ramen with seasoned thick noodles, pork shoulder and belly, an onsen tamago, corn, nori, bonito flakes, shredded red chilli pepper, scallions, and mayo.
  • Chicken Spicy Jalapeño ($12.95): Jalapeño paste, chicken breast, nori, white onion and scallions.
  • Karaage Pork Shoyu ($16.85): Soy sauce, 4 piece karaage, garlic oil, nori and scallions.
