Hokkaido Ramen Santouka | Bellevue, WA

June 8, 2021

This is a small spot, tucked in a small street, that doesn't have much parking. With that being said, it is a nice spot to visit to get your ramen fix. The bento box that I typically get is the Toroniku Gohan. With this bento, the meat is very flavorful, it comes with karaage (chicken), boiled egg, and of course rice. The bento is a decent size and will fill you up, that is if you don't have a ravenous appetite to begin with, which I normally do. HA! We usually get the gyoza too, but it's average tasting.

Ok, but what about the ramen? I typically get the bento and my wife gets the ramen. She 100% Japanese so I trust her judgment when she rates our Japanese take-out here in the US and she likes it! It's not her favorite, but she enjoys it and we go to this spot most times when we're in Bellevue. I've had their vegetarian ramen and I didn't like it. So unless you're vegetarian I wouldn't go for this option.

Anyways, overall this is a nice ramen spot to try out.

Hope you enjoyed!
