Where did I eat?
Ramen Danbo at 1333 Robson Street in Vancouver.
What do they specialize in?
Ramen with customizable broth and noodles.
What was the vibe?
Traditional, small, friendly.
What did I order?
Classic Tonkotsu Ramen
- At Ramen Danbo you can customize the thickness and firmness of your noodles and the amount of fat and spice you want in your broth.
- I thought the regular broth had the perfect amount of fat to make it rich, but not too greasy.
- I prefer my noodles more firm because I find they soften up in the hot broth anyway. The firm thin noodles were perfect for me and exactly what I look for in ramen.
- The chashu pork slices were good. They were tender with a rim of fat, but not too much.
- Adding a soft-boiled egg costs extra, but is definitely worth it. The egg had a nice soft yolk and a slightly salty soy flavour
Negi-Goma Tonkotsu Ramen
- This version comes with double the amount of fresh scallions and sesame seeds
- I loved the addition of the nutty sesame flavour to the broth
Ramen Danbo has officially become my favourite ramen place in Vancouver because I love the high level of customization they offer.
