The Best Ramen Restaurant in Toronto | Eat-Up Meet-Up
I love to eat since I was a kid and I love to travel Travel and eat -That’s my two favourite things (laughing) [laid-back music] Ryoji is more fancy as a ramen shop and also so fun to visit The owner’s concept is everyone’s happy -Does anyone know the proper way to eat ramen? We will find out today An expert is going to teach us -Okinawan food is very healthy I mix modern French cuisine and Kaiseki which is really cool and very original So what I do is more like fine-dining stuff but people don’t realize that (laughing) So this is Ebi Chili Shrimp Cocktail Szechuan-Japanese and American shrimp mixed together This is very different from regular tofu This one is made with starch We mix it, beat it with sweat, lots of sweat (laughing) Extra flavour, maybe? (laughing) So I made deep-fried chicken in sweet and sour soy The chicken is brined overnight and marinated in buttermilk for 3-4 hours It’s cooked at a really low temperature in a sous-vide and then deep-fried So it’s really crunchy and very juicy and tender French technique with Japanese southern style
deep-fried chicken -Oh my God! (ooh-ing) (laughing) So this is Rafute It’s braised pork It’s also a really classic Okinawan-style food Take porky aroma out and marinate in a sous-vide overnight and braise with a sweet miso soy -He’s putting more! That’s a lot! (coughing) (laughing) So this is Okinawa So-ki Soba Like ramen but actually not ramen “Soba” means Japanese noodles So first, enjoy the aroma And then try the soup Sip the soup a little bit And then you can slurp Really strong (slurping) This is the polite way Respect for the chef for a ramen chef So please make noise (slurping) (laughing) 1… 2… 3! (loud slurping) More aroma comes up, right? This is Spicy Miso with Tonkotsu ramen Tonkotsu is thick pork broth It’s really thick with back fat So be careful for your belly (laughing) This is Andrew’s favourite Garlic Oil Very good chemistry with the Tonkotsu broth So please enjoy it -I hope you love it It’s my favourite And I’m so glad we got to share this moment I’m just going to keep talking while I digest food and then I’ll eventually have room to eat some more (loud slurping and moaning) -So this is Sata Andagi It’s a classic Okinawan fresh doughnut Thank you so much, did you have fun? Thank you! Cheers! Kampai!
