    At this wood-trimmed spot, you’ll be amply rewarded when you choose from shoyu, shio, miso, tonkotsu and—if you dare—tongue-singeing hell-style broths, all of which feature house-made noodles. Read more

    Tonkatsu Ramen with an egg 👌🏽 also the scallops are out of this fucking world. Get the truffle for dessert. You will want to die, come back, and haunt this place.

    The tonkotsu ramen is my favorite. The best part about the ramen is the 12 hour cooked broth that's just alive with flavor in your mouth. Wonderful place to eat.

    I enjoyed ramen here for the first time and loved it. It's a nice treat in a cold day. Flavorful hearty brith, swimming in noodles, pork, or whatever you like. So good.

    Tonkotsu with pork belly is most excellent. Also, you can order a noodle refill after you've finished yours for the extra soup!

    Get pork loin instead of pork belly for less fatty/rich taste. Add crushed red pepper if you enjoy spicy broth

    Kinda pricey if you like your ramen fully loaded. The pork broth has a gingery meatiness to it
