On Santouka's website there's no mention of store opening in Canada nor is it listed in the store list. But looking @ their updates of new store openings they tend to do it day-of opening or very close to it.

It's a ramen chain that started out in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, Japan back in '88. They have stores throughout Japan. Quite a few in the US, mostly located in Cali. One in Singapore, & couple in HK. If they have this many stores they must be fairly good, although I'll never try it since I'm a tonkotsu-only fan & they serve shio/miso/shouyu only according to their site.

It is located on Robson beside Guu. I last walked past it a month ago and it was under construction with the windows covered and signs up saying opening soon.

It's Open now. They don't have everything readily available on the menu. The official Grand opening is on March 5th. I went yesterday(28th), and found that this Ramen joint is awesome! Great stuff! Best I've had out of the Lower Mainland.

Just like the Japadog Robson location and Gyudonya, they all missed out on the possible Olympic business they could have had.

Still, I can't wait to try this place out.

^ Technically Japadog didn't lose any business since there were two locations serving the Olympic crowd.

I went there on Tuesday and had the toroniku kara miso ramen. It's a bit pricey at $13 but the special chashu that comes with it was really good (not too salty, very tender) and I liked the soup alot. Noodle was not really the type I like but I would definetly go back again.

Their regular shoyu/miso/shio/kara miso was around $8. My friend had the shoyu so I tried some of the soup and it was good as well.

went today. i ordered the chashu shio and its probably the best ive had in vancouver aside from kintaro except not as fatty. personally, i like kintaro's noodles but santouka's kind is passable i guess. chashu taste almost exactly like kintaro's lean chashu which is a definite plus. aside from that, i will probably order the toroniku miso next time to try the pork jowel or the tsukemen (which i don't think any other vancouver ramen place has offered yet).

Went there this week. Very good ramen, but place is small so you'll probably have to wait.

I love this place. I've been there 3 times already. Seems like each time I go back there is a longer line up. I don't like Kintaro but I really like Benkei. I like this place a little bit more than Benkei.

This is coming from someone who hated ramen at one point.

had to line up for 15 mins, broth soup was really nice (had miso) but noodles weren't the same as kintaro and the price was at 8.95 a little steep

but i'll visit another time as they gave out free noodle tickets to us yesterday
