While taking a stroll down Robson St, we got a little hungry and noticed a line up of people outside a rather new ramen shop. We decided to give it a try since the line up was not too long.
If you are ordering ramen, you have many options to choose from compared to other ramen shops. Here, you must choose the denseness of noodles, the thickness of soup and noodles, even the fattiness of the pork and soup, and finally the spiciness.
We started off with gyoza:
The gyoza was pan fried to a light crisp. It has pork filling and was done quite well.
This is the classic ramen:
For the options, we chose normal for everything. The soup was very good and not overly salty. The noodle texture was perfect while the pork was very tender. If you are craving for more, you can request more noodles for a small charge:
We enjoyed our visit to Danbo because the food was great and also the seating arrangement was very comfortable. The restaurant did not feel overly crowded nor was it stuffy even though it was a full house. The servers were all Japanese and they were very friendly.
We definitely recommend you try it out if you were craving for Ramen after doing your downtown shopping.
