Quick Bites – Kintaro Ramen

So as you know, I’m new to this blogging world.  One of the things that intimdated me the most about writing a blog was the thought of having to write in detail about experiences when I feel they only warrant a quick thought.  So that’s where this, my first Quick Bite post comes in.

I went to Kintaro Ramen on Denman St. for lunch today.  I don’t normally go on a Saturday because it’s so busy on the weekend, but I was craving Kintaro.  Best miso ramen broth out there.  I’m usually a glutton and get the fatty pork with the rich(fatty) broth.  Today I treated myself to the cheese ramen.  Cheese ramen is just like their regular miso, but with cheese on top.  I can’t figure out if I like it or not, but every once in a while I’m compelled to order it.

Very indulgent, but I like their regular miso ramen better.  The gyoza there isn’t the best, (Gyoza King and Menya’s are better)but it’s a must when you get ramen.

They have a new item at Kintaro, the spicy miso ramen with fresh garlic.  My friend ordered this and I had a spoonful.  Woah garlicky!  The flavor was great, but I don’t think my tummy would be able to handle a whole bowl of it, and Ben probably couldn’t either.

Kintaro is my favorite all around ramen place in Vancouver.  But that’s not to say I don’t go to all the others, especially when there’s a line-up at Kintaro.  I’m not willing to wait in line, when there are so many other places in a 2 block radius which have their strong points.  I’ll try to post about those in the future to share what I like about the others as well.
