Ramen Jinya: A Bowl of Comfort From the Rain

Diana Chan November 20, 2011 Japanese, Ramen, Three Beakers, Yaletown

Ramen Jinya is a chain ramen joint from Los Angeles. It was pretty packed during lunch and it’s not a surprise since people want to escape the mucky weather outside to enjoy a nice big bowl of ramen. With the amount of ramen shops downtown, I really wanted to see how this shop compared.

This location only has ramen and a few sides – Gyoza and Karrage. All items are under $10.

Their website is very misleading, so don’t come in expecting the full menu from their website.

Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen ($8.95) comes with their pork broth and pork chashu, spinach, bamboo, and onions.

Vegetable Soup Ramen ($8.95) is all vegetables! When they bring the bowl to you, it looks like a salad, but it isnt! Underneath is a veggie broth and noodles. You should stir it around before eating.

Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen ($8.95) comes with their spicy pork broth, but it was not overwhelmingly spicy. Just a little tingle to the tongue. It also has pork chashu, spinach, Bbamboo, spicy bean sprout, and green onion. Their broth is flavourful, but I think the bowl of ramen could be larger for the price you pay.

The best part of eating ramen are is their large spoons!

Overall, I think this place is alright to eat at if you are in the area. I still prefer Sanpatchi since they have a larger menu and has more noodles.

Words of Wisdom:

  • Nice broth taste
  • Expensive for amount you get
  • Limited menu options
  • Closest Skytrain: Stadium
