Marutama Ramen Vancouver

Marutama Ramen – Chicken broth ramen

When the weather outside is pouring (a typical occurrence in Vancouver!), there is nothing better than a hot bowl of ramen. Vancouver is full of ramen restaurants, especially in the West End where Marutama is located. However, Marutama is different from all the others because of their use of chicken broth (instead of pork).

The broth is rich, without the use of MSG or preservatives and comes either mild or spicy. Their ramen noodles are made in house and topped with thinly sliced cha-shu pork. Typical of ramen restaurants in Japan, when ordering you can select the firmness of your noodles and even order a noodle refill if you desire.

I generally stick with the tamago ramen bowl, however if I’m feeling like some extra cha-shu pork, I may upgrade to the cha-shu tamago ramen. Also on the menu, are a variety of other ramen with different toppings. There are also a few side dishes like Japanese omelette, braised pork belly and gyoza.

It can get really busy with a line out the door, but they have a clipboard where you can put your name down. However, your whole party needs to be present in order to be seated.
