    Hinata, new ramen restaurant in the heart of Jordaan

    Ah, Ramen … I never get tired of this delicious dish. I’m always looking for a new ramen restaurant in Amsterdam. Three months ago, Hinata opened this cozy place in the heart of Jordaan neighborhood, which it’s incredibly good for me, because I live only 5 minutes away!
