these are the best ramen hotspots in amsterdam right now
Ramen are HOT and we get that, because at Yourlbb we also can’t get enough of it. No idea what ramen are? Ramen is a Japanese noodle dish served in a broth of pork and/or chicken. The broth or soup really, is cooked for hours, making the flavours even more intense and delicious. Want to have a bowl of ramen tonight with friends?

Fou Fow Ramen: At Fou Fow Ramen you sit on wooden stools overlooking Asian paintings while enjoying a Japanese beer and a nice bowl of ramen. Delicious right? Fou Fow Ramen is located both on the Elandsgracht (around the corner of the Yourlbb office!) and in the Van Woustraat in the Pijp.
Vattenramen: Vattenramen has since August a location on the Kerkstraat and soon also on the Zeedijk. This ramen restaurant is from Japan’s famous Michelin chef Hideto Kawahara, so this can’t go wrong. In addition to delicious ramen, you can also enjoy gyoza’s and other Japanese side dishes. Yum!
