Taro’s Ramen opened in Stones Corner in 2019, bringing with it the famed brand’s range of nourishing noodles and bone-warming broth. After the closure of Taro’s Express (which had recently transitioned to a vegan offering), Taro Akimoto sought out a new spot to keep his staff employed and continue the evolution of the menu. Fans of the Taro’s Express vegan menu will be stoked to know that the classic, tsukemen, red and fire bowls made the journey to Stones Corner (the sides, however, haven’t made the trip). The classic range of Taro’s tonkotsu ramen is also available, specialising in a lighter-style broth compared to the stickier, thicker broth doled out at Taro’s 480 Queen location. Taro’s Ramen in Stones Corner currently accepts BYO beer and wine, but when the liquor license is acquired the bar will serve the quintessential creamy Suntory Premium Malts, Orion and a Suntory stout off tap. In a few weeks, Taro will renovate the space to include booth seating and iPads on the table for express ordering.
