Ramen to Biiru Nørrebro
Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, CEO and founder of Mikkeller, has always had a profound love for and fascination with Japan. This might be why it seemed like fate when he teamed up with Bento Copenhagen to open a traditional Japanese ramen joint in Copenhagen.
Japanese ramen is a traditional dish which is carefully nourished and cared for by every chef in secrecy, each with their own unique recipe. We have stayed true to the rich history of ramen by bringing in Takuro Otani from Japan long before the opening, both so he could adjust to the surroundings and prepare his broth exactly as it would be in Japan.
Takuro works within the three major categories of ramen: Shio, Shoyu, and Miso. These styles represent a spectrum of flavors, from the lightest (shio) to the richest (miso), and all are topped with homemade noodles and finely-selected toppings. This has helped make Ramen to Bíiru a huge success, as it filled a void in the Copenhagen dining scene. As it turned out, this was just the first of many Ramen to Bíiru spots that Mikkeller would come to open across Copenhagen, but there’s always something extra special about visiting the original one first. You might want to make sure to get there early though: the place is fairly small, and the demand for world-class ramen is high!
