I'm always on the hunt for delicious Japanese foodz, whether it's in my home cities - Boston and Montreal or when I'm on a day trip to New York City, or touring through the West Coast; though I'm quite satisfied with my sushi and yakitori finds, I always felt a lack of great ramen-ness in my Japanese food experience.
Though I cannot comment on its authenticity, since I don't consider myself a ramen expert. A bowl of sizzling hot and spicy volcano ramen at Sumo is delicious and satisfying. The menu is comprised picking your choice of noodle, soup and then 'toppings'. I took the volcano soup (spiciest on the menu, naturally) with ground pork, topped with scallions and seaweed, and being Chinese, I committed the sin of taking Chinese noodles in ramen. I love the flavor of the broth, intense but not overly rich and the perfect spiciness is numbing and warms the heart (perfect for a winter day in Montreal). The noodles are delicious, perfect texture and consistency. I quickly gobbled down the whole (giant) bowl of noodles.
I thought the ramen prices were reasonable, but other appetizers (i.e. yakitori) seems rather expensive for the portions. Overall, it was a yummy experience for me and I'll be back for more.Recommended for:
