Location: Las Vegas, NV
Happy Vegas Valentine’s Day as Kia Killjoy and Commander Q step out for dinner at Jinya Ramen Bar in Las Vegas. After having an amazing Ramen soup at Legoland on New Year’s Eve, we have been searching for a really good, traditional Ramen noodle soup here in Las Vegas. On this vlog, we enjoy Japanese cuisine, and show you some of the popular offerings here at Jinya. Definitely a winner.
Imagine a world where eating ramen is an everyday ritual, like ordering pizza or going out for a great burger. This is the daily reality that JINYA Ramen Bar founder Tomonori Takahashi came from when he arrived in the United States in 2010. But when he searched for his favorite Japanese food, he quickly realized that enjoying the traditional taste and flavor of ramen wasn’t possible – unless he made it himself.
The son of a successful restauranteur in Japan, Tomonori knew what it would take to build a great restaurant. His father had owned an Isakaya-style restaurant named Jinya, where he focused on three values: Delicious food at reasonable prices that’s accessible to all.
Wanting to revive his father’s dream, Tomonori opened his first JINYA in Tokyo in 2000. Named for a Samurai soldier that was close to the community and owned a small property, JINYA was an appropriate name that embodied the ideals of Tomonori’s new restaurant. When he saw the need for authentic ramen in the United States, he decided to set up shop in California and continue his family’s legacy. JINYA Ramen Bar was born.

Quinterribles Official Report:
Since our trip to Legoland, where we had an amazing bowl of Traditional Ramen Soup, I have been on the hunt for a traditional ramen noodle restaurant in Las Vegas. With a large Eastern Asian population, and a thriving Chinatown and Koreatown area, Asian foods have a location here in the city. In the time since this meal, we have visited several ramen places in the city, and this one still holds a special place, as it had great atmosphere, was very lively and the food came out quickly.
We tried two different bowls of ramen soup, including noodle refills, pork bao buns, and green tea mochi ice cream. Everything was excellent, fresh and enjoyable. Like many specialty restaurants, this wasn’t a cheap bargain meal, but the overall price was not ridiculous, and for a special event like Valentine’s Day, it was acceptable. We would definitely like to try this around lunchtime in the future, and I will be bringing friends and family to visit. The Quinterribles recommend Jinya to anyone who wants something that’s a little healthier and heartier than fast food or the usual fare.
