ramenNow here’s a restaurant nearly everybody’s talking about. With good reason: Japanese ramen bar Kokuban is every bit as good as you’d expect. 

It’s always bustling at Kokuban, and it’s best to book a table. The menu mainly features delicious noodle dishes, served in a pretty white and blue bowl. There are some salads as well. But while waiting for your main dish, I suggest you spark your appetite with some gyoza. Filled with chicken and vegetables, these Japanese ravioli go down a treat. Or go for some crunchy Edamame (green beans).

The ramen are freshly made at Kokuban, and come served in a super tasty broth. I choose the Karaage ramen: crispy chicken, soy beans in a chicken and vegetable bouillon. Just perfect.

Go authentic and have some plum wine or (hot) saké with it .. or don’t, and have a glass of white wine (which I did).

If you fancy dessert afterwards, they serve amongst others Japanese flavoured ice cream (with green tea, black and white sesame) and almond pudding.

Eating at Kokuban is always a good idea, whether there’s just two of you or you’re dining with a larger group. And more good news: main courses are priced between 12 and 18 euro!

Note: The food was so nice I forgot to snap a picture. The one in this post is from the Kokuban website.
