Kawawa Ramen

Kawawa Ramen on Urbanspoon

In the busy mall of Metrotown, Kawawa Ramen is right beside Kawawa Japanese Restaurant, it’s main restaurant which serves other Japanese dishes.
The hallway doesn’t get as many traffic as it’s tucked away a bit, but it’s always full whenever I go there. A bit crammed but I guess it’s ok.

I can already tell that it’s not an authentic Japanese ramen-ya from the name. What is Kawawa anyways? Definitely not Japanese. I thought it was hilarious that Monica Urrutia – a food blogger (check out her blog What’s in my mouth?) mentioned that in Filipino, it means ‘pitiful’. LOL.





The service is quick and efficient. Most of the ramen are $7-9, so very affordable. The menu has photos so it’s easy to figure out what you want to order, especially if you’re new to ramen, or the restaurant has come up with their own dishes. The food comes fairly quickly. The ramen and gyoza is decent., so no complaints. But I don’t think I’d ever go there if it was a stand-alone restaurant. I only go there because it’s the only ramen-ya in the mall.

I haven’t had problems with this place, so if you want something other than the food at the food court, this is one option.
