Vegetarian Ramen at Noriko Sushi & Ramen in Biberach

When it comes to dining out, I’m always on the lookout for unique and exciting culinary experiences. In Biberach an der Riss, a charming town in Upper Swabia, I recently had the pleasure of discovering Noriko Sushi & Ramen, a restaurant that has been making waves since its grand opening in February 2022. Noriko is a hidden gem in our town, and today, I’m excited to share my experience with their delectable ramen dishes. By the way, Noriko is a Japanese girl’s name, which, depending on the translation, means something like “The Law” and “The Child”.

Noriko – a Gem in Biberach

Located on Obstmarkt 4, Noriko is a cosy eatery that specializes in sushi and ramen. However, what makes this place truly special is its commitment to quality and its unique menu offerings. Noriko caters to the culinary desires of its patrons from Tuesday to Friday for lunch, with the addition of Thursday evenings for dinner. This carefully selected opening schedule allows the Noriko team to focus on delivering a remarkable dining experience.

A modern twist on traditional Ramen

As I walked into Noriko on one of the first fall-like days, the aroma of simmering broths and spices instantly filled the air. The anticipation grew as I looked at the ramen options. Noriko offers a variety of four different ramen bowls, one of which is vegetarian, and each featuring distinct protein choices, such as Chashu pork, chicken, and salmon. While I opted for the vegetarian ramen, my partner decided to try the Akira Ramen with chicken broth.

My vegetarian Haku Ramen featured a delightful vegan miso base and was generously topped with Kansui Ramen noodles, tofu cubes, braised shiitake mushrooms, edamame, soy sprouts, spring onions, tamago (Japanese omelette), crispy seaweed, nori, and kimchi sesame seeds. The explosion of flavours and textures in this bowl was simply outstanding, and it was priced at an affordable 13.90 Euros.

On the other hand, my partner relished the Akira Ramen, which came with a Shoyu-base (chicken broth) and was equally impressive. It boasted Kansui Ramen noodles, Spicy Chicken, marinated egg, braised shiitake mushrooms, naruto, carrots, fresh coriander, spring onions, nori, and togarashi (spicy seasoning). The richness of the broth and the perfectly cooked noodles made every bite an unforgettable experience.

A culinary journey worth repeating

Both of our ramen dishes were nothing short of mouthwatering, and we couldn’t stop singing praises for the fusion of flavours and the impeccable presentation. Noriko’s ramen offerings truly capture the essence of Japanese cuisine while adding a modern twist that sets them apart from the ordinary.

Not only in the colder months, I highly recommend trying a bowl of their ramen. The warmth and depth of flavour in each spoonful will be a welcome comfort. In the warmer months, be sure to explore Noriko’s other offerings, such as their sushi and bowls. With such a diverse and promising menu, it’s evident that Noriko is committed to providing a delightful experience for every palate.
