Sushi and Ramen. Ramen and Sushi. Two of the best things that has ever come out Japan in my humble Otaku opinion. But, sadly here in the U.S. it’s hard to find really good restaurants that serve prime sushi and ramen.
Until I found Nikko-Sushi and Ramen restaurant. The best thing about finding this place too was it was completely by happen stance. I was with one of my best friends hanging out, and we were looking for some place to eat. We didn’t know what we wanted until my bestie remembered this awesome sushi and ramen place just a little ways away from where she lives. And that place was Nikko.
When you first pull up to the restaurant, I have to admit you don’t expect much. It is tucked away in a little corner by a lot of other stores so it makes it pretty hard to notice if you aren’t looking for it.
But, as soon as you walk into the resturaunt, you are greeted with not only the most relaxing environment–with the soft music flowing through the air and the wonderful smells wafting in from the kitchen. But you also see these amazing Japanese murals hanging on nearly every wall.
But the environment of the restaurant isn’t the only thing that makes me want to come back to Nikko. It’s their menu. For lunch time they offer a various shmorgas board of delicious looking bentos. Then when it changes to dinner time, you get access to really good food such as their Donburi and Ramen bowls.
My friends, you have not had an amazing bowl of Ramen or Japanese cusisen in general until you have tried Nikko’s Ramen and/or Donburi, Bentos, etc.
They mix savory, sweet, and sometimes spicy so very well in all of their dishes. The Donburi has the meat cooked so tenderly and the vegtables that come with it are amazing fried. I never thought I would like fried carrots, but this dish has certainly changed my mind. Not to mention their Gyoza are delicious as well.
Their Ramen is amzing as well. even after a little while of travel your ramen bowl will still remain warm. And with the combonation of their special broth, the noodles and what ever else you ask them to put in there–because you can make your own ramen bowl, it is a fantastic dish.
The only thing I would have to dock points for, is Nikko’s price point. I love their food, but eighteen dollars for a single dish is a bit much for me. It’s worth it, don’t get me wrong, just pricey.
So, if you are ever in the Kaysville area of Utah I highly recommend checking these guys out. Your wallet won’t love you for it, but your taste buds and stomach certainly will.
