I was out of town for part October so I cheated and picked an easy challenge. I sought out to find the best ramen in Vancouver. For most of you, before I even started you had your ranking in your mind.

I find many of the spots taste fairly close to the same and when you add in all your extras the costs are relatively close in price with the exeption of Motomachi which is the most expensive.

Just keep in mind when you are reading this, I was looking for the best ramen in Vancouver not the worst, so it wasn't necessary for me to go to places where I knew the quality and flavour was poor.

Here is October's Monthly Challenge - The Best Ramen In The City.

For November, I think it will be Steak And Frites. Suggestions? But not too many cause I will be broke.

Steak frites recommendations- Jules Bistro in Gastown and Salade de Fruits in the French Cultural Centre. It's so AUTHENTIC.

Another meat one? Your poor insides. Haha.

Jules is budget friendly so I second it. I tried Pastis but I forgot if it was good. Tried it several years ago during Dine Out. Smoking dog? Again, years ago when my friend Aly was a server there.

Thanks friends,
I was thinking those places as well.

Smoking Dog
Jules
Pied a Terre
Les Faux bourgeois
Maybe one or two more.

I heard you can bring your own wine to Salade de fruits but you pay a corking fee, sounds great.

nice Ramen reviews!
I say Salade des Fruits too for your steak and fries too.
I'm really enjoying your blog - thanks!

Smoking Dog used to kill it with the steak and pomme frites. Been a while since I have ventured in there and looking forward to your review.

I've been to Pastis the last 2 Dine Outs. The fiance and I heart their frites. Pied a Terre and Les Faux Bourgeois are very high on my list of places I want to go, so I can't wait to read about them!

Awesome post. Like I said previously, you're killing it with these posts. LOL at the Hanabi post.
