That said, there are a couple things you can do to perk up your mood until actual spring comes blowing into town.One of my favorite thing to do is to indulge in all those decadent and delicious 'winter' foods - like Ramen.

Good thing Montreal has a ton of Ramen spots to choose from. We've read the reviews and picked out the top ramen spots to visit. Each one with their own unique appeal. 

1. Sumo Ramen 

Where: 1007 Saint-Laurent // China Town

Why you should go: Sumo Ramen is a China Town staple and has been around for as long as I can remember. The main attraction is choice. They have a wide range of Ramen flavors and toppings to choose from. The atmosphere is also super laid-back and relaxed. Perfect for a weekday bite.


2. Big In Japan 

Where: 3723 Saint-Laurent // Plateau

Why you should go: Big in Japan Restaurant - not to be confused with Big in Japan Bar up the street - serves some crazy comforting and hearty Japanese food in a minimal yet trendy atmosphere. Try their decadent and savory ramen for an unforgettable trip to flavor town.


3. Yokato Yokabai Ramen
