Everyone seems to love ramen, and most people enjoy a nice cold pint. But have you ever thought of putting ramen and beer together? Maybe not, but this Japanese restaurant in the 6ix is serving this crazy ramen beer Toronto combination and you can check it out now and see how you feel about it!
The thought of a foamy cold beer and ramen noodles together might not strike you as a natural match, but this "drink" is an opportunity to prove that assumption wrong!
Guu Izakaya Toronto is serving this new form of beer.
"It comes with chilled ramen noodle, cold Kombu seaweed and fish broth, Naruto fish cake, Menma bamboo shoot, scallion, sweet corn, and whipped egg white," says Guu Izakaya Toronto.
Unfortunately, for those of you who might be looking to get a buzz from this particular bite, there's actually no alcohol in this beverage/meal.
Typically more "refreshing" than traditional ramen, the restaurant suggests ramen beer is best enjoyed on a warm day.
"Unfortunately, summer in Toronto is almost over but this ramen is very good for a hot day," says Guu Izakaya. However, even in winter, you can enjoy the same great taste and bold combination.
Just last year, Ramen Beer was a big hit in Vancouver with Yuu Japanese Ramen located in Richmond. Now, the popularity of the concept has seen Toronto get its own turn.
If this sounds appetizing to you, Guu Izakaya Toronto serves up this cold brew for $12. The restaurant is open Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Another great thing about this idea? With its carbs and lack of alcohol, this is one type of beer that could be good for you after an evening out!
