Hokkaido Santouka Ramen

C, my sis in law, is a foodie and has given us countless recommendations.  She was the one who told us about Santouka Ramen.  She said everything was good but try the pork jowl ramen - that really stood out.  I'll take her recommendations any time.

So we walked from Sears on Robson down to almost Denman which sure worked up our appetite.

We were seated immediately and zeroed in on the pork jowl ramen (Toroniku Ramen) - there were photos in the menu and that did indeed look like the best one to order.  The Toroniku Ramen is pork jowl (pork cheeks) served with bamboo shoots, spring onions and black fungus.  D had the salt flavoured one and I had the miso.

I took a bite of the pork jowl and wow - a burst of flavour.  We ate the pork cheek - fat and all.  Melts in your mouth just like butter - you won't believe its pork.

The broth and the ramen was very tasty.  We drained the broth but didn't feel thirsty after.  This place is a keeper and I'll definitely be back for more.
