Shiki Menya

Shiki Menya, Calgary

FINALLY got around to trying Shiki Menya in Bridgeland a few weekends ago :) I’m not a ramen connoisseur but I do nay settle for mediocrity when it comes to ramen, and not all ramen is made equal! Thankfully, Shiki Menya is pretty comparable to the ramen I’ve had in Vancouver. I tried the kara miso garlic (negi, soft tamago, menma, char siu, corn, garlic “ra-yu” chili oil) with a refreshing glass of cold ocha. Cloudy broth? Check. Hand made noodles? Check.

With the ubiquity of pho restaurants, a new ramen place is a welcome addition to the noodle soup game in Calgary. I’ve read reviews and some people have commented that the broth is salty, but they’re all in regards to the tonkotsu classic so maybe avoid that if you’re not into salty soup? I’ve had salty bowls of ramen before and it’s never fun (I’m looking at you, Nomiya). Should you decide to check it out, I’d recommend getting there early (we waited outside before they opened!) as they only make 100something bowls per day else you’ll be waiting in hangry purgatory.
