Crafty Ramen was launched by Miki and Jared to bring the pillars of traditional Japanese ramen — 'regionality' and 'innovation' — into the Canadian market. The brand uses locally sourced and seasonally available ingredients from regional butchers and farmers to create an array of novel ramen dishes, many of which are based on traditional family recipes.
Notable menu items include: the “Northern Warmer,” a hearty miso ramen made from chicken broth, and topped with pork chashu, cabbage, carrot, roasted corn, menma, and chili miso butter moulded into lego figures; and the “Gryphon,” a spicy miso ramen made from a rich pork and duck bone broth, topped with pork chashu, buttered corn, chili green onion, and ito togarashi.
All of Crafty Ramen’s bowls include their house-made noodles, crafted from organic Ontario wheat, and all of their offerings incorporate high-quality ingredients with no additives or MSG.
