Ramen Danbo

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

Final Thoughts?

Ramen Danbo has officially become my favourite ramen place in Vancouver because I love the high level of customization they offer.
