Kenzo Ramen is a chain of Japanese restaurants famous for their delicious, freshly made noodle soup dishes. For those who have not yet experienced the deliciousness that is ramen, it is a Japanese noodle dish consisting of Chinese-style wheat noodles with your choice of basic toppings like pork, vegetables, egg and bean sprouts. Kenzo Ramen specializes in a soup broth base of combination dried seafood, chicken and port bone which is stewed for 24 hours prior, making for a rich, flavorful taste.

The soup broth makes for a healthy and unforgettable taste; you will find yourself craving it for days to come. Kenzo Ramen also prides itself in fermenting their sauces for three months prior, which accounts for the unmistakable and irresistible smell when you walk in. Kenzo Ramen also has options such as gyoza (pan fried dumplings), famous takoyaki (pan fried octopus balls) or a lunchtime special of katsudon (breaded chicken on rice).
The soups are great for when the weather is chilly, but are equally irresistible in the summer heat as well, which they complement with offering the most refreshing Iced Matcha Lattes you will ever have the pleasure of drinking. Overall, the restaurants have such friendly staff and sophisticated décor, you will not hesitate to return when you find yourself craving their savory soups, and with prices under $10 for very large portions, you definitely can.
