I would recommend to fly to Düsseldorf first, not further away and you still can get authentic Japanese food
Just wondering...any reason for why it can't be found here? Btw, on Bahnofstrasse in Zürich there is this place Mishio. I've bought some things for home from there, mainly sushi and honestly have no idea whether they have ramen or not, but everything was so good. Then again, due to ignorance I'm so unpretentious when it comes to Asian food.

Re: Ramen in Zurich

I bought some instant ramen from Asia - doesn't rank high in terms of taste but a good option for quick and easy meal hot soupy noodles to slurp during the cold evenings... oh, and go for the instant ramen, not the instant noodles, for that specific Japanese umami taste

I think the food tastes more authentic in Düsseldorf as there's a big Japanese community there. There are many ramen and sushi places of which the customers are mainly the Japanese (sometimes the waiter/waitress can't even speak proper English, let alone German ). There are also some ramen restaurants famous for the local, but the taste is different mainly because it is customised for the local ones.
I have tried Ikoo, the recommended ramen place in ZH, and I must say that the taste is nowhere closer to the ones in Düsseldorf.

I didn't mind Ooki at Stauffacher. HOWEVER, I did notice I was super thirsty afterwards so I am suspicious that there is some MSG in the soup which was slightly disappointing. But, I enjoyed it during the meal and was decent enough considering I can't be too picky in Europe =)
I doubt that there was MSG, more likely salty miso and a bit of soy-sauce. However MSG is not as bad as everybody likes to make out, its just some people have an allergy to it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monosodium_glutamate

I tried OOKI and really enjoyed the food and friendly service, its the most genuine Ramen I have had in Zürich, I think they even make the noodles in-house.

But just to put everybody off, because of a shortage of seating in OOKI, don't go you won't like it ;-)

OK, that makes sense now. Had no idea Düsseldorf has a sizeable Japanese community.
Btw, I spotted and bought sushi (really good) and a few other things from this one

The kitchen staff seems...Japanese (yes, you can see the kitchen while eating). You can also eat outside, if the weather allows.
Anyway, before I get too enthusiastic....it's good enough for me.

Re: Ramen in Zurich

Yumi Hana right off Banhofstrasse near HB sells some decent packs of ramen to hold that edge over until you get a real bowl.

Duesseldorf has btw the largest Japanese community in Europe... If you ever happen to be there or in Frankfurt - this is way more Japanese than anything I ever had in Zurich (and I believe I tried them all...)

anyway: I like yoojis, but it is approximately as authentic Japanese as I am.
(And while I was a customer for years have I never met any Japanese staff... but loads of Chinese.)
