Ramen Misoya

About 2 months ago, I was planning a trip to Montreal and doing extensive research about possible ramen places to visit in the french city. Ramen Misoya came up a couple of times during my research and at that time Misoya didn’t exist in Toronto. Fast forward 1 month later, Misoya suddenly popped up on the hustle & bustle streets of Queen West.

With over 100 locations now across Japan, and about 15 locations in Brazil, Italy, Asia and North America, Misoya is a renowned Japanese franchised restaurant that specializes in Miso Ramen. Misoya’s New York location has been recommended by Michelin Guide for 5 consecutive years in a row (2013-2017).

With all that being said, we were lucky enough to check out the new kid on the block!

So what sets Misoya apart from other ramen shops?

At Ramen Misoya, miso lovers can eat eat their hearts out & are able to customize their bowls of ramen. There are 2 types of miso to choose from:

(1) Gold Kome Miso – made with soybeans & rice with intense flavours and a rich aroma
(2) Silver Shiro Miso – made with soybean and rice with light flavours and slightly sweeter

Depending on what you like, their menu is made easy for customers to choose different variations of the Gold / Silver Miso bowls (some offer 3 slices of cha-shu pork while some with just 1 slice). From there, customers can add additional toppings to their bowl for extra costs.
