The West End’s ever-expanding ramen scene has just gained a new addition, thanks to newcomer Touhenboku.

Hailing from Toronto, Touhenboku Ramen has recently opened up its doors at 854 Denman Street (next to dessert purveyor True Confections).

This authentic ramen house, which is open for both lunch and dinner, serves steaming bowls of homemade broth and fresh noodles, with all natural ingredients, no preservatives or flavour enhancers.

Specializing in Kyushu-style ramen, it’s all about thick, creamy, chicken-based broth at Touhenboku.

For the summer months the restaurant is offering a special traditional cold ramen dish topped with the choice of chashu, egg, crab meat, kikurage mushroom, green onion, and a homemade sweet and sour sauce.

In addition to the ramen bowls, Touhenboku offers donburi (rice bowl dishes) and Japanese appetizers such as chicken karaage, gyoza, and takoyaki (octopus fried in a light and crispy batter with takoyaki sauce).

There’s also a small selection of desserts too, all made in-house. These include mille crepes, tiramisu, Japanese cheesecake, and an ultra dense chocolate cake.

To celebrate their opening, Touhenboku is offering 30% off all ramen from August 15 to 21.
