RAMEN MISOYA COLOMBO





Hi guys!

I hope you guys have had a wonderful week so far. As you may or may not know I visited Ramen Misoya last Sunday. This review was a paid collaboration with Ramen Misoya Colombo. The restaurant is relatively new as they opened last November. They are located at race course closer to mc Donalds which is a super convenient location! It is a Japanese restaurant chain located around the world and now here in Colombo. We were told that everything except the meat is imported from Japan which makes the ramen even more authentic. We started the review off with some Japanese tea which I recommend you try before the ramen. It is said that the miso flavor changes based on different locations in Japan which is quite interesting.


Vegetable spring rolls - We decided to get the spring rolls as the starter as it's something Nayan and I could've both had along side the Japanese tea. It comes with a home made miso sauce which I absolutely love and it compliments the crispy spring rolls so well. There is also a chicken option for starters which isn't a big variety to chose from but the focus at the restaurant is the ramen. 


Kara ramen - This is the spicy option but Japanese spicy is nowhere close to Sri Lankan spicy. It's quite mild which makes it easier to have. I was expecting it to be very spicy but it's not so bad at all. I ordered the vegetarian option of this and honestly I need about an hour to finish this bowl. I'm a very slow eater and the portion of these ramen bowls are quite big. I posted a photo of it on my stories and the circumference of the bowl if 2.5 of my hands. The noodles were super soft and the bowl was filled with chunks of vegetables. I recommend to wear the paper apron if you're wearing something light colored as it tends to splash. (Rs.1100)


Hokkaido Pork Cha Shu - Nayan doesn't eat spicy food so he went for the mild pork dish. Ramen is known for it's pork so it would be ideal to order one of these options. However, they do have chicken options to chose from as well. Nayan finished his ramen in a couple of minutes where I was still at the top of my bowl. He's a fan of Japanese food in general and he really loves this restaurant. I have to say that it was full of meat and looks exactly like the picture shown on the menu. I really admire that about this restaurant, what you see if what you get. (Rs.1700)


Homemade ice cream - There are three flavors to chose from, miso, sesame and matcha. I'm generally not a fan of matcha but I was pleasantly surprised with the ice cream at ramen misoya. You can either chose one big scoop or three small scoops of all three flavors. I recommend you to order all three so that you know which flavor is your favorite and order the big scoop when you visit again. The sesame and matcha were my favorites and the miso is a more salty option. The ice creams are super creamy, soft and light which is the perfect end to your dinning experience at ramen misoya.


An important fact that I do have to mention is that the restaurant has two separate kitchens. One section for the pork and the other for chicken and vegetarian. I think this is a brilliant idea for people who do not eat pork. The restaurant is also closed on Mondays and Tuesday at the moment so make sure you head over anytime from Wednesday - Sunday. I can't wait to visit ramen misoya again, it's definitely one of those places thats not a one time visit. It's almost like comfort food to me which I really love. 


I hope you guys enjoyed another one of my reviews and I can't wait to hear about your experience at Ramen Misoya Colombo! 


Love,
