On Wednesday, I was invited to a tasting at Kinton Ramen’s 5th location on Church Street. We were allowed to have a full bull of ramen with 2 additional toppings, an appetizer and a drink. I’ve been to Kinton many times but I’ve never actually tried the Miso broth so I did the Pork Miso with pork, thin noodles and added a seasoned egg and vegetables. The broth was rich and garlicy but not too salty and a nice variation from the original pork.
Nash had the Original Chicken broth with chicken breast. His already came with a seasoned egg so he added bean sprouts and…
.. a giant pile of swiss cheese. If you’ve never added cheese to ramen before it can seem weird but it adds a whole new layer of textures and tastes. We’ve done it a couple of times now at Kinton and if you’re feeling extra hungry I highly recommend it.
We split our sides and I chose the Tofu Furai, which were fried tofu nuggets which were as delicious as chicken nuggets.
The Hot Karaage was also tenderly fried and had a decent kick.
A calpico, a milky non-carbonated soft drink actually helped to tone down the spice between bites of karaage.
If you’re in the neighbourhood, Kinton Ramen 5 is well worth a visit and bound to become a regular spot!
This meal was complimentary but views are my own.
