Joli Kobe Kitchen – RAMEN!!!

Joli kitchen recently added savory components to it’s arsenal of top notch pastries with it’s addition of a Japanese chef. Its menu however is more eclectic than Japanese; there is the ubiquitous tonkotsu ramen and a soba noodle dish, but the likes of hanger steak, cured salmon and a charcuterie plate also share space.

They have two locations, one in the Prado on the border of Sandy Springs and Buckhead, and the other in midtown that is currently serving a bakery menu only. When I saw the ramen on the menu I had to give it a try and it was pretty solid; runny egg, roasted pork, kimchi etc…what’s not to like. They also hosted a successful ramen pop up dinner with a visiting chef from New York last April that they plan to do again.

I am always a sucker for a charcuterie plate, so why not one at a Japanese bakery/restaurant? The results were pretty solid; prosciutto, speck, head cheese, house-made pickles and mustard, etc.

I also sampled the cured salmon sandwich with yuzo pickles and avocado, and while there was just way too much bread, it was tasty; for the record I removed one piece and sliced the other in half for a much better result.

The sandwiches and sides were all decent, but the ramen was definitely the star of the menu, that and some of the sweet bean cakes we scored from the bakery. Their dinner menu is a little more robust with some interesting items like Japanese octopus that I look forward to trying. So if you go, try out the ramen and look for their next pop dinner, and don’t forget to stop by their stellar bakery and pick up a few pastries to go!
