Ramen Koika is located at 1231 Davie Street (cross Bute). It is across from Stephos. I’m surprised they have been opened nearly two years and I have not heard about them. This underrated Japanese noodle restaurant in the West End deserves some extra love, especially if you are looking for variety with a modern twist. Ramen Koika is sister restaurants with Japanese Bistro Hatzu.
The restaurant has a few 4-top tables in the back and open window bar seating in the front. It is perfect for people watching. You may get some random stranger trying to Instagram your bowl of ramen noodles. But hey, that’s what makes it interesting right?

 

I was invited by Popcorn along with few fellow bloggers for menu tasting at Ramen Koika.

Ramen Koika menu focuses on Japanese ramen noodles (of course) with Pork or Chicken broth options, Tsukemen dipping noodles, burgers and snacks like Gyoza, Takoyaki and Tornado Potato Stick. It isn’t exactly your typical traditional ramen shops in Vancouver.

Chiba Black Ramen 千葉黒ラーメン 10.95: The broth was creamy and aromatic with black garlic oil. This tonkotsu ramen comes with bamboo shoot, roasted seaweed, a perfect soft boiled ajitama egg, Cha-Shu, black tree fungus, green onion, garlic chip, and of course black garlic oil (inspired by Machida Sensei in Japan) .

Sapporo Miso Ramen 札幌味噌ラーメン 10.85: The Wok Smoky ramen is one of their most popular items. It is theatrical to watch flames go up in the kithen and calls for a great boomerang moment. Option to add stir fried seaweed to the line up of bamboo shoot, ground pork, bean sprouts, green onion, and corn.

Tokyo Tsukemen 東京つけ麺 10.95: This Japanese noodle dish consists of ramen being dipped into a separate bowl of broth. You can choose between spicy or non-spicy – I would definitely recommend the spice. It really isn’t that spicy and has a nice punch. Comes with thick homemade ramen noodle, Shoyu tare, shredded pork, green onion, roasted seaweed, and bamboo shoot.
