📍 5165 Yonge St, North York, Toronto
With 6 Kinton Ramen locations, 5 in Toronto and 1 in Quebec, I went to Kinton Ramen 4! Assuming that this was the 4th location they opened in Ontario, hence all the numbers behind each name.
The Kinka Family also owns JaBistro, Kinka Izakaya & Neo Coffee Bar besides their several Kinton Ramen stores! They have established pretty well over the years here in Toronto 🙂 !
The weather in Toronto has been freezing lately, so what’s better than a bowl of yummy ramen to warm me up?
Kinton Ramen 4 has a pretty tight spacing, with about 4 tables for 2-3 seaters, and about 2 big tables for groups, and a huge bar seating – where you can see the the chefs make the ramen and so systematic too!
At Kinton Ramen, they have pork ramen and chicken ramen – and you can get meal combos as well!
I went for a Miso Pork Ramen with thin noodles 🙂 .
My Miso flavoured ramen came with soybean paste, bean sprouts, scallions, corn, garlic oil with pork broth.
Kinton Ramen also allows slight customization such as noodle thickness (thick or thin), additional toppings at an extra price (sweet corn, butter, nori, scallions, seasoned egg, etc). Personally, I really like thin noodles because of the firmness of the noodles. So I can slurp and bite it easier as well. Thick noodles doesn’t have that texture that I like in ramen noodles.
In hindsight, I should have attempted the Kinton Bowler, in which you finish the entire bowl (including the broth)! Kinton Ramen has certain incentives when you do, which you can read more here!
I have been to Kinton Ramen before a few years ago and I remember the broth being very very salty. This time around though, it wasn’t as salty as I’ve remembered! It was better and more enjoyable this round, but I didn’t finish it again, because I was full at the end of my meal, haha.
With so many ramen places around Toronto, it’s easy to get your ramen craves fixed! Especially with the cold weathers coming in, I would rather have warm soupy meals instead.
Till next time, ♥
