    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    I actually like it alot. I dislike thick soup base Ramen. Depends on which part of japan you go, it's quite different as well.

    Was there on Thursday night and tried the char siu bun and the spicy and black garlic ramen. We both loved the ramen, but the app wasn't great. The bun was slimy and dense, instead of being fluffy and light. We'd definitely go back again, but I think Shiki Menya is still my favourite, but it's a lot closer than I thought.

    Went there today and had the tonkotsu shio ramen. The broth is consistent with the feedback thus far: on the light side, verge on bland. However, you have it with the char siu and it balances out. I had extra and was totally worth it.

    IMO, it's better than Menyatai if that holds merit to anyone.

    IMO it's the closest thing to local Japanese ramen. Shiki Menya is still the best one for me but that's because I love chili goma haha.

    I'll try other items at Wakado with spiciness to it.

    Went there for lunch today. Outstanding. Best ramen noodles in Calgary by far. Nice and firm. Finally somebody here that understands this. Broth was amazing. The chasu was unfuckingbelievable. So soft.

    Will have to go back.

    Been 3 times since I saw this thread months ago. So good! I love that broth isn't salty but still has a good amount of flavor.

    I thought it was salty enough. Lots of people are salt-blind these days. John Gilchrist for instance was clearly totally salt-blind near the end of his tenure.

    Taste buds desensitized to salt.

    Went to check this place out today after reading through all the comments here to see what the hype is all about. I ordered the Tonkotsu Black with Extra Pork and it was delicious! The broth is flavorful and not as salty as Shiki Menya or Jinya. IMO one of the best in Calgary. We had Ikemen last night and this one is SO much better.

    My only complaint is the portion felt small. I was still hungry after my ramen + extra pork and that was $20 + tips... maybe next time I'll skip the extra meat and ask if they can do extra noodles.
