TORONTO — Kinton Ramen now offers 100-per-cent beef-broth ramen, becoming the first restaurant in Canada to do so. Established in May 2012, Kinton Ramen was one of Toronto’s first Japanese ramen restaurants.
Beef ramen blended with other broths, such as pork or dashi, has only been available in some parts of Japan, specifically the Shimomatsu, Tottori, Hikari, and Yamaguchi Prefectures. Beef broth-only ramen is uncommon, even in Japan.
Chef Aki Urata and his team specially designed the ramen recipe with beef broth crafted with slow-roasted beef brisket and tallow, simmered with onions, garlic, and ginger.
The brand-new beef ramen is available in original or spicy garlic.
