Dip into a Delicious Bowl at Kinton Ramen

Pork belly ramen at Kinton Ramen

Chicago takes its ramen seriously, and Kinton Ramen is about to bring its Toronto-based bowls to the mix with its United States debut. After conquering Tokyo, Seoul and Montreal with its wildly popular noodles, Kinton had landed in the West Loop, with a second Chicago location set to open soon in Wicker Park. “It’s been my childhood dream to come to the U.S.,” says founder James Hyunsoo Kim. Each ramen starts with broth made from scratch daily. Slurp up a bowl of pork shoyu ($11), which features a savory broth crafted from pork bones cooked down for 20 hours, accompanied by melt-in-your-mouth slices of torched pork belly. Welcome to the neighborhood. 163 N. Sangamon St., 312.374.3942
