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.
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.
