Hokkaido Ramen Santouka (山頭火) Robson Street
Hokkaido Ramen Santouka started with a single restaurant in Asahikawa, Hokkaido. This ramen restaurant has several oversea locations such as Hong Kong, Thailand and Philippines.
Besides, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka has several Canada locations too. In Vancouver, there are 2 locations,West Broadway and Robson Street.
Santouka came to Vancouver from Asahikawa, Hokkaido, Japan. Asahikawa known for their distinctive style of Ramen.
Since Santouka opened in Vancouver, there’s never been a day without a line up. Their basic soup is made from Tonkotsu, mixed with vegetables and dried sardine. There are three flavours: Shio, Miso and Shoyu.
The Shio is my favourite! I love the combination of the creamy and rich soup with the semi thick noodle. Santouka is proud of their Ramen and said “We will offer the exact same taste as Japan”. To ensure this, the key ingredients such as noodles and sauce are imported from Japan. If you want to try it, you should be ready to wait at least 10-15 minutes!! It’s definitely worth the wait.
