Ajisen Ramen

Ajisen Ramen is a franchise based in Japan. They are so successful that they are present in more than 10 countries. Unfortunately, none of the yummy restaurants has come to Montreal yet... In my opinion, it is the best ramen franchise restaurant. Every time I go to Toronto, Ajisen Ramen is a must on my restaurant list.

These are the appetizers. I forgot the name but it is basically fish cake rolled in seaweed and stuffed with cheese. The whole is enveloped by a batter and deep fried. You can dip the mayonnaise.
If I remember correctly, this is korokke. This is also deep fried and served with mayonnaise. It is mashed potatoes and other vegetables. Simple but delicious.
This is volcano ramen. It looks normal but as you eat, it gets spicier and spicier. In the bowl, you find corn, seaweed, the famous Japanese pork, half of an egg. It is my boyfriend's favourite.
Most of the other ramen come plain like this, and the steak or pork chop come separately.
There is not much with only corn and green onions, yet the broth and the ramen that resembles enormously to spaghetti are succulent! The noodles are never too cooked or too mushy. Just like pasta, noodles should be not too cooked in the centre to have a slightly chewiness. Ajisen Ramen has the best ramen!
My favourite is steak ramen. The steak is served on a hot plate. You hear the tzzzzzzz as the waitress brings it. As you can see in the picture, the meat is very raw, but the plate is so hot that by the time you eat it, you will have the perfect medium cooking =) It smells amazing!
This is deep fried pork chop. I find this one not too special..but my brother usually likes deep fried food hehehhe

  1. I dont know why but i have never been a big fan of ramen in those japanese restaurants because they always tasted so plain! I think that might be the case since I always go to those average ones in china town, so maybe if Im ever in toronto, ill check them out since it looks especially yummy in your pictures! The steak looks especially succulent (already making me drool LOL).

    I love reading your restaurant reviews!
