Just when you thought Stoneybatter couldn't get any cooler, a dedicated ramen restaurant has opened up on Manor Street. The Ramen Kitchen opened last Friday and already seems to be getting the thumbs up according to Instagram.
The Ramen Kitchen does six different types of ramen, with ingredients like braised beef ribs, Japanese style roast pork and grilled salmon, as well as a vegetarian option with tofu, pak choi, black garlic and mushrooms (you can find the full menu at the bottom of this article). They also serve donburi rice bowls, bento boxes and sushi, and there's a full wine list (including sake), as well as Japanese beers and a couple of prosecco cocktails.
The Ramen Kitchen say the secret to good ramen is the broth, and they make theirs from scratch before cooking it for six hours. They also have two different types of chefs in the kitchen which they think gives them an edge - classically French trained and traditional Japanese. Their vegetables are organic where possible, wagyu beef comes from Cork, and seafood comes in daily from Wrights.
The Ramen Kitchen is open from 12pm seven days a week, and we can't be the only ones thinking about moving to Stoneybatter right now.
