Kenzo Japanese Noodle House

Kenzo Japanese Noodle House specializes in Ramen noodles – Not your typical Western style pasta but rather a type of wheat noodle served in a meat or fish flavoured broth. There aren’t that many places that serve decent Ramen noodles in Toronto so Kenzo is probably your safest bet.

I was shopping on Bloor and ended up  in the Annex. Despite the mixed reviews of Kenzo I decided to check it out anyways because I was craving for some ramen on a particular cold and windy day outside.

Kenzo Japanese Noodle House  currently has 3 locations – Dundas, Bloor & Yonge being their newest location.

The interior:

Their menu is divided up into different sections: Basic Ramen, Spicy Noodles, Cuisine Ramen & Special Ramen

Matcha Smoothie ($4.95)

  • I had a few sips of this drink and didn’t enjoy it at all – I’m glad I didn’t order it
  • The matcha smoothie was very icy so it didn’t go down “smoothly” =S

Tonkotsu Ra-men ($9.95)

  • Hakata style pork bone soup ra-men (3 slices of pork, half boiled egg, seaweed and garnished with green onions)
  • Tonkotsu is basically a thick broth made from boiling pork bones and fat
  • The ramen noodles are cooked nicely with a slight chewiness texture without being mushy
  • It visually looks really appealing – portions are alright – because I never get full from eating ramen =S

Tonkotsu Mi-so Ra-men ($9.95)

  • Tokotsu ra-men with miso flavour

Netsu Ra-men ($8.95)

  • Hot sapporo-style ra-men with ground pork and vegetables. Hot Level 1 to 3

Kenzo Japanese Noodle House serves decent bowls of ramen. Always perfect for a quick lunch or dinner on a cold day. Service was considered slow especially since we were the only ones there…. In terms of portion, my friends and I weren’t full – at all. We would probably have to order a side order of meat (lol)  Overall, Kenzo is one of the better ramen places in the GTA
