Koi Sakana Ramen

Evidently there was also a sushi place in the same plaza with the same name that is now closed, which confused me greatly when trying to look up the hours for this place. I’m still unsure as if that was the case, but Koi Sakana Ramen is definitely open and a great place for ramen in the GTA.

Koi Sakana
Location: 360 Highway 7 East, Unit 3
Richmond Hill, ON
L4B 3Y7
Hours: Monday: Closed
Tuesday to Sunday: 11:30am to 10pm
Price: $
Atmosphere: Low-key, homey
Service: Friendly and welcoming

The restaurant itself is very small and there are definitely regulars who come by often and are friendly with the owners.  We came as a group of 7 and probably filled about a quarter of it.

The menu is filled with traditional  fare like tonkotsu, or more modern twists like bacon and cheese ramen. The Hokkaido, pictured above, was milky and flavourful, and the eggs were probably my favourite thing about the dish.

The Bacon Cheese I wouldn’t exactly recommend, it wasn’t bad but seeing as I am not a bacon-lover, I found it an odd pair with ramen.

There was just something that didn’t seem as fresh as ramen you might find at the crowded ramen shops downtown, but overall it was very satisfying and I’ll definitely be back to satisfy my ramen cravings when I don’t feel like heading downtown and (likely) waiting in line for a bowl.
