Soft Opening @ Kinton Ramen

Please keep in mind that this is NOT a review of Kinton Ramen. I attended their soft opening last night and believe that it is only fair to do a full review once they officially open.  I simply want to post some photos and give everyone a little sneak preview of whats in store for Kinton Ramen. (Grand Opening: Friday May 18, 2012

Kinton Ramen (@KintonRamen) / Facebook: KintonRamen is small & narrow restaurant located on Baldwin Street. This is the third restaurant opened by the owners of Guu Toronto (@GuuToronto). Unlike Guu Izakaya and Guu Sake BarKinton Ramen is a cozy eatery dedicated to serving only ramen. Based on my experience at their soft opening- the ramen here was delectable, the staff were very warm and helpful, awesome vibe (like always) – honestly a ramen lovers’ rejoice!

I arrived at Kinton Ramen for their soft opening right at 5pm.

Once you walk through the doors, on your right you’ll see a stand up – communal table.

Bar / Love the little piggy decor behind the hostess.

We opted to sit at the kitchen bar! I love open kitchen concepts – get to see the chefs work their magic.

Table setting.

Kinton Ramen has yet to obtain their liquor license. So we opted for one of their soft drinks.

House Lemonade ($3.00)

Gyoza ($3.50) – House made dumplings

Closer shot

Karaage ($4.80) – Regular or Spicy Fried Chicken – Opted for Spicy

My view all night =D

Cheese Ramen ($10.80) – Miso and light soup, swiss cheese,  beansprout, corn, basil & kinton pork (choice of pork belly or shoulder) – opted for pork shoulder

Kinton Pork Ramen ($12.80) – choice of miso, shio, shoyu or spicy + extra volume of Kinton pork
(choice of pork belly or shoulder or both) – opted for both porks & waitress highly recommended miso!

The bill is presented on a mini dim sum tray.

Hungry now? So am I! Can’t wait to be back for their Grand opening (Tomorrow – Friday May 18, 2012) It was honestly a very tasty & rich meal – I can imagine that it will only get better from here!

    I’m adding this to my list of things to try. I’ve only had Ajisen and Kenzo. Didn’t like Kenzo one bit, hopefully this one is good!
