Where did I eat?
Sho Bu Japanese Noodle at 25136 Lincoln Avenue in Coquitlam.
What do they specialize in?
Ramen and rice bowls.
What was the vibe?
Dark, small, cozy.
What did I order?
Kakuni Ramen – Tonkotsu Ramen with Pork Belly
- The noodles were cooked well and had a bouncy texture and didn’t get overcooked.
- The pork belly was really good and not too fatty. It was very tender and had a slightly sweet flavour. They also sell a pork belly rice bowl that I want to go back and try.
- The broth was the only thing that disappointed me. It didn’t have the depth of flavour or richness that the more popular ramen places downtown have.
For a suburban ramen place Sho Bu is decent, but doesn’t compare to the more traditional places downtown.
