This global chain originated in Kawaguchi, Japan, in 2001 and established its first Vancouver outpost in 2013. Now, with a Marutama location in Burnaby, you can stick close to home while enjoying Marutama’s large variety of ramen made with fresh noodles, chicken broth, and Aosa (sea lettuce) shipped directly from Japan. Marutama came highly recommended by several Burnaby Beacon readers, so you know this is the spot to go for delectable, creamy, ramen.
