Downtown Montreal's Kinka Izakaya welcomes Toronto ramen pillar Kinton Ramen for a special kitchen collabo this week. Both brands are part of the Kinka restaurant group—there are currently four Kinton Ramens in Toronto. The restaurant's website exhorts: "Kinton Ramen is our masterpiece of Japanese noodle bowl. With this exceptional, unforgettable and scrumptious bowl that is not found anywhere else in town, you will be guaranteed to have a wonderful and addictive experience with us."
The pop-up gist at the Faubourg Ste-Catherine izakaya is this: customers can order Kinton Ramen's pork miso ramen or pork shio ramen at Kinka Izakaya this Tuesday and Wednesday (dinner hours only). Whether the pop-up presages a possible Kinton Ramen in Montreal is, of course, wildly speculative. But feel free to hope.
