Brussels Notes: Umamido

Brussels Notes: Umamido

I love soups. Almost all kinds. Most of the times I would rather have a good hearty soup than the main course. We have been talking about trying some ramen soup restaurant here in Brussels for quite some time. And I’m happy to report we finally did so. We researched our options and decided to try Umamido restaurant near St. Catherine.

It was actually our first time in a ramen restaurant, even though we made ramen inspired soups at home few time. It was a high time to find out what the real ramen soup should taste like.

Umamido focuses on ramen soups. Their menu is clear and simple, but that’s a sign of a good restaurant in general. As a starter, we had Gyoza – Japanese pasta filled with chicken and vegetables. They were delicious. It seems like such a simple food, but it’s delightful.We decided for chef’s ramen and vegetarian ramen. Both tasted great, rich in flavor and very satisfying. The vegetarian ramen with miso broth and silken tofu was very smooth and delicate. The chef’s ramen served with pork and kimchi was spicy and very filling.

When visiting a new restaurant, you never know whether you’ll be leaving satisfied or disappointed. Our lunch at Umamido was excellent. I loved the place right from the beginning. The design of the restaurant is simple, minimalistic. We visited around 1 pm, and the restaurant was calm, not crowded which I really liked. The food tasted amazing, and we were leaving with full bellies and happy smiles. We’ll be coming back, for sure!
