RAMEN-YA HIRO

"It's the most famous ramen shop in Barcelona + probably in Spain. It a tiny shop + has a really long waiting time (about 1 or 2 hours), but it is also THE ramen shop - a place where a chef devoted to ramen, Hiro, strives to make the best ramen possible respecting all the processes, with a broth cooked for more than 15 hours."

CHASHU RAMEN

"This place is not so famous but it has one of my favourite miso ramen of all time. The place is managed by Terry + his wife - it's homely, with separated tables so you can feel comfortable with your group. Every time I go I feel at home, + enjoy really good bowls + good conversation with the chef."

KOBUTA RAMEN

"A bit far away from the centre of Barcelona, Kobuta Ramen i Mès specialises in Tonkotsu gyokai ramen, which means a pork broth with fish flavours. Their broth is a thick one with an intense flavour and + import their noodles directly from Tokyo. It's the most unique style in Barcelona."
