Ryoji Ramen & Izakaya‘s EPIC Ramen Tasting Returns with Toronto Common!

May 31st, 7pm, June 28th, 7pm, July 26th, 7pm

As part of our Anniversary celebration we launched our Epic Ramen Tasting and it sold out so quickly we knew we needed to add more.

Ryoji’s ramen tasting has been one of the most popular and longest running events on Toronto Common, while the EPIC ramen tasting was amazing, it was also a little wasteful so we’ve made one slight change to this event.

Instead of the Tonkostu, Spicy Miso, and Garlic Oil ramen, which are the same broth and noodle with the addition of a signature sauce.Ryoji will be offering their Garlic Oil and Spicy Miso topping to be added to any of the ramens for a mix and match. While Spicy Miso and Garlic Oil are offered on the menu as a Tonkotsu ramen, they are regularly added to other ramens like Shio, Shoyu and Vegetable as well.

Still over 2 regular bowls of ramen in total with 9 noodle tasting dishes plus sake for $28 tax & tip included!

  • Tonkotsu Special
  • Pai Tan
  • Seasonal Special
  • Shio
  • Shoyu
  • Vegetable
  • Okinawa So-Ki Soba
  • Bonito Tonkotsu Shoyu TsukeSoba
  • Spicy Black Sesame Miso Tonkotsu TsukeSoba

* PLUS spicy miso and garlic oil on the side.

 



Ryoji Ramen & Izakaya
, established in January 2013 in Toronto, but with multiple locations in Okinawa Japan, is the only Okinawan-style Izakaya in Toronto.

With Okinawa’s rich history and slightly different culture from mainland Japan, Ryoji offers traditional and inventive cuisines and ramens reflective of the unique culture of Okinawa.

Simple yet delicate flavours, fresh ingredients, creative cuisine, served in a bistro style.

Staying true to the Ryoji values of gratitude, passion, and awareness, Ryoji looks to evolve their menu with appreciation to their surroundings and to continue to evolve the art of Japanese cuisine.

Tokyo Cafe Style Ramen Tasting at Ryus Noodle Bar

Posted on Updated on

Ryus Noodle Bar, a Tokyo Cafe Style Noodle Bar on Baldwin is continuing their popular noodle & ramen tasting with Toronto Common for two more weeks in July for $20 tax and tip included with just 7 tickets for each event!

A Ramen By Any Other Name…

Posted on Updated on

Dan Dan NoodlesShio RamenBraised Beef Noodle

With another sold out ramen event last night at Ryoji Ramen & Izakaya, we have to ask…

Would a ramen by any other name still taste as sweet… savoury… absolutely delicious?

Contrary to popular belief, ramen was not brought here by a famous celebrity chef from New York. 🙂

And it’s debatable whether ramen originated from Chinese noodles.

But rather than debate food politics or history our motto at Toronto Common is just try them all for yourself! 🙂

Whether you love ramen, been meaning to try it or you’re looking for something new, our two events this weekend will definitely satisfy!

Like ramen, both One Hour Cafeteria and Noodle Face Co, offer delicious noodles in a flavourful, rich, broth.

Both locations make all their broths in-house, from scratch with quality ingredients, never any msg or preservatives.

And like our ramen tasting event, you can try many noodle dishes along with starters and tea or bubble tea tastings for a set price, including tax & tip! Both events are under $20 and have had sold out events of their own!

But make no mistake, this is not ramen.

Each location offers their unique take on some famous Chinese noodle dishes, many dating back centuries.

From a Sweet & Spicy Cold Noodle to Braised Beef Noodle to DanDan noodles, this is Chinese comfort food at it’s best!

So step out of your ramen comfort zone and give another noodle a try this weekend!

To view the menu for each event and purchase tickets visit…

Saturday, March 15th, 2-4pm, Menu Tasting @ One Hour Cafeteria

Sunday, March 16th, 1-3pm, Modern Beijing Tasting @ Noodle Face Co

Or to attend our next Ramen Tasting with a new limited time special ramen visit…

Tuesday, March 25th, 7-9pm Ramen Tasting @ Ryoji Ramen & Izakaya

Hope to see you soon!

Toronto Common partners with local businesses to host fun, social, unique micro-events around the city. Micro or mini events allow for more engaging social settings, more unique offerings, and an overall more manageable experience for attendees & hosts.

Ramen Tasting at Ryoji Ramen & Izakaya

Posted on Updated on

All February Toronto Common is hosting a ramen tasting at Ryoji Ramen & Izakaya!

So much of ramen is in the broth and with so many different choices sometimes it’s hard to know what to order.

Ryoji took the guess work out of ramen offering 4 of their most popular ramens in tasting sizes.

  • Tonkatsu – A rich pork bone broth
  • Shio – A light chicken & pork bone broth
  • Shoyu – A soy based broth
  • Vegetable – A konbu & mushroom broth

With 5 locations in Okinawa, Ryoji offers authentic Japanese cuisine and wanted guests to try the unique flavours in their different types of ramen.

In addition, Ryoji included 4 starter samplers, a sake tasting and dessert as well.

“The food was good – although there was a large party, every dish seemed to be up to par and not sloppy as would be expected when serving so many people.”

Our first event was held last Tuesday Feb 4th and we’d like to thank all our attendees joining in the fun, Ryoji for hosting the event, and BlogTO for mentioning our event on their Toronto Food Events!
