While the cold we experience here in Vancouver is nothing compared to our neighbours in the east, it tends to be in the kind of cold that seeps into your coat and under your clothes, chilling you to the core. Our solution? Noodle soup – and lots of it! Tried and tested by yours truly, here are our favourite places to get noodle soup in Kits.

Peaceful Restaurant is well known for their amazing fried noodles and dumplings, but their noodle soups are also absolutely outstanding. From spicy sichuan beef soup noodles to the delicious and soothing vegetable & tofu soup noodles (ideal for when you’re under the weather), Peaceful has something for everyone.

Iki doesn’t have a lot of options when it comes to noodle soups, but their udon is just so delightful we had to include it here. Their udon soup, which is made with thick Japanese noodles and savoury broth so delicious it feels downright therapeutic, is available with chicken teriyaki, yaki, beef teriyaki, and nabeyaki.
2756 West Broadway, 604-731-4771, www.ikisushi.ca
There’s nothing like a hot bowl of ramen on a cold day. Choose from a variety of traditional Japanese broths served with ramen noodles cooked to perfection. When I’m feeling extra gluttonous, I like to indulge with the butter and corn ramen. Don’t forget to add an egg for extra tastiness!
3132 West Broadway, 604-738-3132
Lin Chinese Cuisine and Tea House
Lin has some amazing handmade Chinese noodle soups, including shanghai style noodle soup, Tan Tan noodles with minced meat, and even some vegetarian options (which can be surprisingly difficult to find for noodle soups as the broth is often made with meat).
