Best Ramen In Vancouver: 11 Spots To Try If You're Obsessed With Noodles

Here in Vancouver, we have some of the finest ramen shops outside of Japan. Some places have such authentic food that it feels you're in Osaka or Tokyo. If you are obsessed with noodles, then you need to check out these spots where you can try the best ramen in Vancouver.

There is no better way to warm up on a cold and drizzly day than with a steaming bowl of ramen. The massive bowl of flavour-packed broth and noodles will help you feel toasty even if it's pouring and cold outside.

Each region of Japan has its style of ramen that you need to discover.

For example, there are four basic types of broth: shouyu (soy sauce), shio (salt), tonkotsu (pork bone) and miso (fermented soybean).

Most restaurants offer these four basic types, but you'll often find plenty of unique variations of not only the broth but toppings too. You'll see everything from candied bacon to cheese in a ramen dish.

Another reason to love ramen is it is super cheap. You can often enjoy a mountain of food for under $15.

It is time to grab your chopsticks and enjoy some tasty noodles. With so many ramen spots in town, it might be a challenge to keep track of them all. Here are 11 places to go if you can't get enough noodles:
