Tokyo-style ramen: pork-based broth with shoyu (soy sauce), shio (salt), or miso flavours, is in full rage in Vancouver. Raman houses have higher stores-per-square-foot density than Starbucks around Robson and Damen Downtown and Benkei Raman is working on its 6th store.
Ramen is not generally healthy. It's salty, oily, and packed with carb'licious noodles and low quality meat. Motomachi Shokudo distinguish itself with organic ingredients and even organic chicken and fish based broth - no MSG. The ramen gets its delicious flavours from the fresh and high quality ingredients.
This is (so far) definitely my favourite ramen house. Nothing like a big bowl of deliciousness at $8-10 that you won't regret later.
