If you're from Vancouver, you should know by now how much we love our ramen. With so many ramen restaurants around town, it can be hard to keep things interesting — however there are plenty of new spots and ramen challenges popping up as of late.
This one Vancouver restaurant is now serving up a unique ramen dish that is both intriguing and appetising — beer ramen!
Yuu Japanese Ramen, located in Richmond, has begun serving up a beer ramen that comes in a large beer mug — however it's not what you think.
The ramen noodles are actually submerged in a cold broth that is made with bonito (fish) flakes, with the layer of foam on top consisting of egg whites and gelatin. How clever is that?
The beer ramen is a refreshing take on ramen noodles for Yuu Japanese Ramen's summer menu, and comes with a side of either chicken or vegetable tempura.
The dish is reminiscent of zaru soba, which is a refreshing cold buckwheat noodle dish that is popular during summer months. We've been seeing this dish pop up all over our social media feeds — and have a feeling that will only increase this summer!
