Tosh’s Ramen is a decent option for some comfort food in Salt Lake City.  It’s provides warmth in Salt Lake City’s brutal winters.

Tosh’s Ramen is located on State St along with a lot of the restaurant options in Salt Lake City.  It’s in a little strip mall next to other ethnic restaurants.  It’s your typical ramen house with all the standard ramen choices and side dishes.  The prices are pretty standard when compared to other major cities.  It might be even cheaper.

I arrived at Tosh’s Ramen after a day at Park City Ski Resort.  I was starving since I skipped breakfast and I wanted some comfort food before my 6 PM flight.  Tosh’s Ramen was one of the two planned options I had in mind.  I went with Tosh’s Ramen because I felt it provided the comfort I needed after a day of snowboarding in a blizzard at Park City.

The strip mall was covered in snow.  There wasn’t a parking spot available, so I decided to park behind Loan Smart on the corner of State and Cleveland.  I still had all my snowboarding gear on except for the boots.  I wasn’t going to change because the wind and cold was still brutal.

I walked over to find Tosh’s Ramen to be pretty packed.  There were 2-3 groups waiting for a table and it was a full house.  However, I was seated within 5 minutes.  The perks of being a solo traveler.  I looked over the menu.  I went with the Karai ramen and an order of gyoza.

  1. Karai – The Karai Ramen is a blend of Spicy Tonkotsu and Spicy Miso broth.  Tonkotsu ramen is one of the most popular style of ramen in the world.  If not, the most popular.  It’s found on every ramen menu.  The Karai came with onsen tamago, take no ko, kuwai, and moyashi.  The silky pork broth was perfect for a day at Park City.  It came out piping hot looking very delicious; the broth’s rich flavors soothed my palate and growling stomach.   The minced pork provided a fatty flavor, but the chashu was very dry and not tasty.  It’s a pretty decent bowl of ramen.

  2. Gyoza – The gyoza filled with pork stuffing accompanied with a sweet soy sauce.  The seared wrapping provided a slight crunch; however, the pork filing was a bit disappointing.  The texture and flavors reminded me of frozen gyoza sold at Costco.  It wasn’t very tasty and the flavors were a bit dull.

Tosh’s Ramen does its job in Salt Lake City’s brutal winters.  The flavors were good enough to get by in a non-culinary city.  However, I don’t think it can compete with some of the world’s most popular ramen bowls.  I don’t feel the flavors could compete with some of the United States’ favorite ramen bowls like Totto Ramen, Ichiran or Santouka.  It’s not close to Japan ramen.  For Salt Lake City, Tosh’s Ramen is perfect after a day at Park City.
