Most people I talk to don't understand my love for ramen. To many, it's just a simple bowl of noodle soup that people can "instantly" make at home. I think the ramen craze started in the summer of 2012 in Toronto... a bunch of ramen shops just popped up downtown and I ended up trying almost all of them. Now, there are too many out there! The latest place I tried was Ramen Isshin, located in Kensington-Chinatown.
For the appetizer, my boyfriend chose the Chicken Karaage - Super crispy, crunchy, juicy bites of Japanese style deep fried chicken served with kupe mayo.
And I chose one of my favourite Japanese snacks - Takoyaki - Deep fried battered octopus formed into balls topped with bonito flakes, takoyaki sauce & kupe mayo.
P.S. You might want to check out Ramen Isshin's video below to see what the right (and polite) way of eating ramen is. ; )
