Starting in California in 2010, Tomonari Takahashi set out to bring the world of ramen to North America. Inspired by his father, a successful restaurateur in Japan, Takahashi knew that delicious food, reasonable prices and a relaxed, lively setting would be the key to running a successful ramen bar. Now with over 15 Jinya locations in North America, it’s clear that Takahashi has the right idea. And lucky for us, one of those branches happens to be in Toronto!
Located at the corner of Carlton and Church streets, and run by Vancouver Jinya veteran Allen Yu, Jinya Ramen Bar is a hip, yet comfortable spot to enjoy mouth-watering food and drinks with friends. Its lively atmosphere is what truly distinguishes Jinya from your typical ramen eatery: pumped with music and offering local beers on tap, Jinya puts the “bar” in ramen bar—making it the perfect spot for a fun night out. The menu truly has something for everyone—including traditional ramen, tapas and vegan options. The Spicy Chicken Ramen is one of Jinya’s best-selling dishes, and it’s easy to see why. Slowly roasted to bring out the flavour, then fully cooled down to preserve its tenderness, the chicken is perfectly succulent. Deeply flavoured chicken broth takes five hours to prepare and is simmered with a dash of chili paste.
