One of North America’s fastest-growing ramen restaurants has opened in Burlington.

Kinton Ramen, with 40 locations in Canada and the U.S., has settled in at Cornerstone Centreat Appleby Line and Upper Middle Road along with other eateries such as Dave’s Hot Chicken, Sunset Grill and Starbucks.

For those who aren’t familiar, ramen is a Japanese noodle dish of Chinese origin. The noodles are served in a broth and come in a variety of flavourings.

At Kinton, the menu boasts an array of classic ramen options, combo specials, seasonal specials, sides and a variety of beverages.

Not only are they known for their noodle soups, they also do frequent specials like burnt shoyu ramen, gekikara chili ramen and chilled tsukemen. The restaurant also has a Kinton Bowler club where you can unlock perks and prizes. Additionally, the menu includes karaage fried chicken, gyoza dumplings, and takoyaki balls.

The meat-infused broths are cooked for over 20 hours to create its robust flavour which is enhanced with ingredients such as scallions, bean sprouts, seaweed, mushrooms, and seasoned egg.

Kinton Ramen first opened in Toronto in 2012 and has been on the rise ever since. The chain expects to bring the number of locations up to 45 before the end of 2024. Its growth has been attributed to the increasing demand and popularity of authentic ramen across North America.

The operators say they chose Burlington for a location based on the dining habits of local residents who are always looking for new taste experiences.
