Ramen Kimama @ Birger Jarlsgatan, Stockholm, Sweden

I'll be lying if I told you that we did not crave for any oriental food during our trip to Scandinavia. In fact, all my family members started petitioning to have Asian food on our second day in Stockholm.
Yaki Soba (SEK 140) - My uncle was smitten by the large batch of Yaki Soba, studded with cabbages, onions, carrots and bite sized pork. This was merely the beginning of a wonderful meal at Raman Kimama.
Nabeyaki Udon (SEK 145) - The Nabeyaki Udon was heart warming and delicious, thanks to the chewy udon noodles, vegetables, poached egg, tempura shrimp, kamaboka (fish cake), bean curd and chicken. My auntie had no trouble slurping it up - all by herself! 
Shio Ramen (SEK 115) - There may be many form of ramen soup, but the foundation of a good soup remains the same. The key is to pull out as much flavor as possible from the boned-up stock for a good long time. This Shio Ramen was a testament to the classic bone-based broth - Delicate and Rich! Dad was chirpy with his choice. 
Miso Ramen (SEK 115) - The miso fortified pork bones soup was dominated with shredded pork, bean sprouts, onions and scallions. Needless to say, the bouncy noodles and ingredients built around the flavored soup effortlessly.  It was indeed an excellent choice for myself. 
Tom Yum Ramen (SEK 160) - Mum took an alternative route, where she beelined to the exotic Tom Yum Ramen, treating herself with lip smacking spicy soup filled fresh seafood and vegetables. The result of sipping hot soup during cold weather was sensational.
Gyoza - The covered pan fried gyoza hosted the filling well, helping to end our meal and paused our cravings for the next few days.  

VERDICT: TOTALLY SMITTEN

Miso Ramen

Tom Yum Ramen

    1. You are right, the yaki soba does look like maggi goreng, but it taste a lot different. Prices are extremely expensive there but the portion is huge, so i guess is fair.

  16. Somehow we Asians need to come back to our roots and just like you, we had Chinese food in Norway esp. I am loving each one of the dishes you all had and they are simply splendid.
