In case you’ve been left behind by the Japanese noodle craze sweeping Europe, ramen are thin wheat noodles that originate in China. They are served in big hot bowls of broth and come with a variety of toppings. Luckily, Brussels has a great place to enjoy these delicious noodles.
Umamido was once a stall at Flagey market and was upgraded to a small place just next to the square. It’s a small, minimalist place, tastefully decorated in wood and white – think Japan or Denmark. The menu is small which means that they can concentrate on the quality of each dish and their ramen really are delicious.
The prices are reasonable by Brussels standards and you will definitely leave feeling full. What’s more, they quite like to experiment so you might come across some unusual flavours and innovative dishes.
They also have a second branch on Place Saint-Catherine.
