Sansotei Ramen (Toronto)- Must Try in Toronto

I never realized how much I loved Asian food until my trip to Toronto. It was only for two weeks but I found it incredibly hard to resist suggesting Asian cuisine (whether it be Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Shanghainese, etc) whenever my coworkers and I wanted to go out for dinner.

On one particular day, I finally convinced my coworkers to come with me to this much raved about ramen place on Dundas W Street called Sansotei Ramen.

 
The location of this restaurant is pretty discreet so it actually took us a while to find it. My suggestion: make sure you use a GPS or the Google Map app on your phone.
Their menu is very nonchalant and basic. You can choose from either Tonkotsu, Miso, Shoyu, Shio, or Tan Tan. That’s it!
After walking quite a distance to find this noodle house, I had to order a refreshing beverage. Hence, the bubbly and ever-so-fun drink called Ramune! You can say its half beverage, half toy. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just get it next time and trust me, you won’t regret it.
I’m not 100% sure but I believe they served us fresh Edamame ($3) which was amazing because I’ve only ever had frozen ones. The pods were a little bouncier and the taste was a tiny bit fresher. Pure awesomeness.

We all knew our ramen was going to be great before it even arrived because the appetizers already blew us away. We ordered the Gyoza ($4.50), not expecting it to be anything special. Except, these were freshly made in house, there was an explosion in the flavour department, and the crispness of the bottom was spectacular. God, I want some now.

I chose the Tonkotsu Ramen ($9.25) which came with a whole egg, pork belly, green onion, and wood ear mushroom. The rich intense broth was what did it for me. I could’ve not finished any part of the ramen, but I had to finish the soup because it was just that delicious.

My coworker raved about the intense miso flavour of his Miso Ramen ($9.50) and the buttery-ness of the pork belly. Needless to say, he finished his portion and more.

A lot of times, the Shio Ramen ($8.90) gets a bad rep for being unflavourful and too ‘light’. This was not the case at Sansotei Ramen because my coworkers slurped it all up. He said the flavour was incredible.

All in all, I think you can already guess that I thoroughly enjoyed Sansotei Ramen. It is an absolute must try in Toronto, even if you think you’ve had the best ramen already in Vancouver (or wherever) and nothing can top it. I’m not saying its the best ramen you’ll ever have, but its pretty up there for me.
