Kenzo Ramen, Toronto

Kenzo Ramen is one of a several noodle restos in the greater Toronto area. I will be on a mission over the next little while, to see whose ramen experience is best. In North America, my "gold standard" is Ippudo, in New York.

Takoyaki, baked octopus balls. Ok, but not a home run. Soft, light, deep fried dough with a chunk of octopus in the middle, with an overly acidic sauce.

Tonkotsu ramen, hakata style pork bone soup with julienned green onion, baby bok choy, sliced beef, a hard par boiled egg. Finely diced garlic on the side. With the additional of bits of the freshly diced garlic that enliven the flavours, this is a good soup with very good broth and very good noodles.

Sapporo miso ramen with roasted veg, bean sprouts, baby bok choy, mushrooms, carrots and cabbage. A bland soup with good noodles.

Overall, a pleasant experience, but not enough to draw me back.
