Is there such a thing as too many ramen options? The answer is probably no in Vancouver because we love our ramen and the variety.
The new Menya Raizo opened recently and I had the opportunity to try it for the first time recently. I ordered the miso and Lil ordered the Shio ramen. We also ordered their crispy chicken wings.
Let’s start with the wings:
They were fall off the bone delicious. Sauce was fantastic, like a sweet soy. It had a very interesting crispy texture, light but just right.
Miso ramen came with a big slice of pork, most likely pre-sliced and cooled. Also sprouts, corn, and a slab of butter. Miso was light, not super salty, and because of the chicken broth, the overall feel was light. Pork was good once it heated up in the soup. Noodles were thick, like traditional ramen.
Service was very typical Japanese. They are card only and do not accept cash.
Rating: 4/5 will definitely be back for lunch because prices were reasonable and I didn’t feel drained after eating it.
