I went to the 2$ ramen around 5pm. There was no lineup! After taxes it was $2.10!! Epic win.

kintaro > motomachi > benkei. benkei has decent shio but the miso is so bland. dislike the cha siu they use as well. their onigiri is good however.

Anyone know if Kintaro is still open?

If so, which days do they close? Is it still just Monday or..??


Which is better? Kintaro or Benkei Ramen?

I really like it at first but it becomes way too hard to eat later on. Sits heavy in your stomach too.

What's disappointing is that noodle/ramen restaurant that used to be on Thurlow and Alberni St. (next to McDonalds) is closed and now is some other joint.
