How was it?
There's nothing better than a hot bowl of ramen on a cold winters night, no? I had been in the 'ramen mood' for quite some time, so El and I put on our jackets and scarves and headed towards Ramen Kan. The restaurant itself is quite large and cleverly decorated with straw and ropes. Getting into Ramen Kan however is a little bit tricky. I always (always) go to the wrong entrance, they have a sign saying Ramen Kan on the street level, but it's actually the loading dock entrance, so you have to walk a couple doors down (towards Oportos), walk inside a little doorway and wait for the dodgy lift to arrive. Don't stand too close to the lift as there are holes in the ceiling and water may decide to drip on you!
When we entered the restaurant we waited a couple of minutes and were then seated. We perused their extensive menu, almost got sidetracked by some don, but found our way back to the ramen and ordered a bowl each. The portions were huge and they were so warm, tasty and satisfying.

I've always had great dining experiences at Ramen Kan. The food comes out very fast (which is great) and the staff are very friendly. Ramen Kan provides a quiet refuge and some great Japanese fare in Chinatown.
