FOU FOW RAMEN IN AMSTERDAM
Is your idea of ramen a package of YumYum from Albert Heijn? It may be easy and cheap, but you need to visit Le Fou Fow right away to try the real thing! This ramen restaurant with two Amsterdam locations is super delicious.
Slurp up a bowl of traditional tonkotsu pork ramen, shio ramen made with chicken broth, or order their vegetarian version. We loved their vegetarian gyoza, get some as an appetizer to share if you are feeling especially hungry. They are made right there by hand.
The tonkotsu broth is creamy and savory without being too salty and the noodles are perfectly chewy. The ramen comes with a few veggies on top for some added crunch and flavor. The regular portion is quite filling but if you are super hungry you can opt for the large size.
Fou Fow (pronounced “fu fu”) was started by Chinese filmmaker, Fow Pyng Hu who traveled to Japan to learn the art of ramen making. Thinking this would be a perfect dish for cloudy, rainy Amsterdam, he opened a pop-up at Toko Dun Yong in 2012. It was a big hit and a few years later they closed that location and opened up their own shop on the bustling Elandsgracht. And now they also have a branch on Van Woustraat in de Pijp.
