Bundle up in your favorite jacket and get ready for a ramen tour! All right, we know how San Antonio weather is, so whether you’re in a jacket or some shorts and a tank top, go out and enjoy some delicious noodles that are gaining new fans by the slurp.


152 E. Pecan St., Suite 102

Kimura, located in the heart of downtown at the corner of E. Pecan Street and St. Mary’s, offers four types of ramen. The menu lists the ramen from lightest to heaviest and we decided to order in the middle with the tonkotsu ramen because we like it light, but also a little bit of a punch in each bite. Basically, we want to be full after a bowl of soup! The first spoonful of the tonkotsu — pork bone broth ramen swimming with shiitake mushrooms, flour noodles and fish cakes — immediately melted away all of our stress. The bright pink color of the fish cake made the bowl a photograph-worthy dish and the shiitake mushrooms made for a meaty bowl. What we love most about Kimura, SA’s first big-time purveyor of all things ramen, by the way, is that you can create your own bowl with numerous additions, including pork bone, pork belly, beef, tofu, soft boiled egg, nori, extra broth and extra noodles. We recommend the extra broth, noodles and a soft boiled egg. Ah, perfection.

Cost: $8 ramen with option to add more ingredients ranging from $1 to $6
