    Michelin Guide Worthy TOKYO VEGAN RAMEN: Soranoiro

    TOKYO VEGAN RAMEN! The ramen at acclaimed “Sonaioro” is vegan, gluten-free and gosh darnnit, delicious. Their signature ramen is chock-full of veggies, with 1 bowl taking care of 75% of your recommended daily vegetable intake.

    Now this dish below is actually the “Special Veggie Soba” – not all vegan because there are eggs there, for one. It’s a calming blend of citrusy thanks to the yuzu, and spicy, thanks to the hot miso paste. It reminds me of shio (salt) ramen but without the guilt.

    Now this below is the famous “Vegan Veggie Soba”. It’s a vegetable explosion, with veggies coming up with every bite. It’s naturally a bit lighter than the other bowl.

    After you’ve done, you can order rice with melted cheese top everything up

    Although the dishes are actually called “soba,” they look and feel closer to ramen.

    Vegan Power!

    Now this one here is a seasonal…cold ramen with a niboshi (dried sardine) broth. The myouga, or Japanese ginger provides a nice garnish and matches the salty, cool noodles and shrimpy taste from the niboshi.

    Keep an eye out for seasonal specials when you’re there. Like me (bottomless stomach), you can eat one of the signature dishes, and also order a seasonal one.
