Foursquare Tips

  • High-5 the manager Eddie for wearing a Hugh & Crye shirt.
  • Ponzu-filled, grilled avocado with wasabi is a must. Use a spoon. Trust us.
  • There are two ways to experience this restaurant: Stay on the ground floor to sip the broth and slurp the noodles of Sapporo-style ramen or go upstairs to order from a menu small plates.
  • Ramen purists might blanch at the thought of a noodle bowl without pork, but they've probably never had chef Katsuya Fukushima's vegan ramen
  • Try the vegetable ramen and turn it over with some pork. Best of both worlds.
  • 'Wednesday Cat' is a great beer in a great can. Who knew beer could even BE so buttery
  • Sit at the bar for close up view of the action. 3 person crew. 1 on wok. 1 on noodles. 1 on broth.
  • Eat your noodles first. Don't forget to slurp! Oiishi
  • Cool ramen place, crowded, noisy, great ramen, just what you would expect from ramen bar. Would recommend if you are hungry and like noodles.
  • Not bad. Good noodles. Broth leaves you thirsty all night because of sodium. LOVE the egg.
  • Lives up to the hype! You'll have some of the best ramen here! I recommend the Spicy Miso Ramen with chashu and egg add-ons.
  • I won't give to much away but look for the bartender with the monogram "pimp" on his sleeve and a stylish bow tie. Not only does he make one of the best old fashioned in the game he also had great req
  • Now open for lunch
  • Get the vegetable ramen and then add both the roast pork and the pork belly. It's the best bang for the buck. Also quite filling.
  • Okay, yes, this lives up to hype and was worth the nearly hour wait on a rainy Saturday, but the ramen was just so damn good.
  • Gyoza is their only appetizer but it's a delicious starter while waiting for the amazing ramen.
  • Ramen on the bottom, izakaya on top. Grab a drink upstairs while waiting for a seat to open up at the ramen shop.
  • Don't bother going upstairs. The ramen bar downstairs is where it's at.
  • Simply amazing ramen. Worth the wait and cool vibe.
  • Apparently, we just found out that there's a bar upstairs that serves cocktails and small plates. And, the first floor is just ramen and gyoza.
