The Worst Ramen Place Ever

I had to share this with fellow Chowhounders who may like ramen.

Last night I tried the worst Ramen place ever called Yokozuna Japanese Noodle House at 505 Hwy 7. First of all not only is it NOT run by Japanese people (surprise surprise) but the actual ramen was atrocious. I got sick afterwards. Their broth was not made hot enough, it was slightly above luke warm. Plus the soup tasted weird, not Japanese at all. The noodles were the worst part of the dish. Please do not eat here. I suspect Takebashi Noodle House, which is in the same plaza, is no better. Also we ordered deep fried gyoza, which tasted of MSG and like the frozen canadianized salty weird kind of pastry shell and filling. BAD gyoza, the worst I've tasted ever.

The only decent ramen I've had in Toronto so far is Ko-nichiwa, which is on Baldwin St. and it is run by Japanese people. It is kind of expensive however (because portions are small), and two pieces of gyoza on the side cost $3.95. But at least they are real gyoza.

Wish they had ok ramen noodle houses in Toronto like in Vancouver... Vancouver has Kintaro's on Denman St and Ezogiku on Rubson St (and even they are much inferior to Japan's....).... why won't they open real ramen noodle houses.... ARGH!
