Now Open: Saka Ba Warms The Plateau With Ramen

With the chilly weather continuing to water our eyes and freeze our noses off, the daily grind to find comfort food that will relax and warm us up is always on.

One food that fits this bill perfectly is ramen, the uber-popular noodle dish from Japan, where boiled noodles are basically served in different flavoured soups with many toppings – a little 101 for all you newbies.

Feeling the need for top-notch ramen to invade Montreal, Chef Junichi Ikematsu, better known as Juni, Owner of the Laurier St. restaurant that bears his name, opened Saka-Ba. This Japanese resto-bar is now open from 5pm to midnight every day except for Wednesdays with a simplified menu of ramen featuring small izakaya plates that look as colourful as they taste. 

Located in the heart of the Plateau at 1279 Mont-Royal E., Saka-Ba takes Juni back to the 70s in his native Kyoto, with sophisticated visual elements created by talented restaurant designer Jean-Pierre Viau. We will let the images speak for themselves… 

This cozy spot has received a very warm welcome to the neighbourhood and word is that the ramen gets a solid two chopsticks up. Enjoy!
