  • A ramen chef from Japan opened Yume Wo Katare in Cambridges Porter Square. The name means tell me your dreams."
  • The pork ramen here comes with an impressive pedigree -- the owner runs five other restaurants in Japan, where they've been hip to this whole ramen craze long before Bostonians. Slurp away.
  • Can't take home food. No talking on cellphone policy. Very large portions. Extra toppings are free - veggies, garlic, and pork fat. Cash only.
  • Yume Wo Katare in Porter Square offers only one dish, but its worth the inevitable wait. Read the full review at: http://now.tufts.edu/articles/dish-embrace-ramen

  • Always the the large with extra garlic. You're welcome.
  • The wait is usually long, the hours are finicky (check the website for updates), and it's cash-only, but the ramen is worth the fuss.
  • Buta Ramen! Ninniku Iremasuka? Yes!
  • Their new table arrangement will bring you to an Asian classroom experience.
  • Get the fresh garlic. You won't regret it.
  • Arrive early on Fridays. There's a line to the Dunkin Donuts around 5:30pm every week.
  • The food is great; the line is not.
  • Yumas ramen remains the best ramen shop in Boston. Its unique jiro style ramen is garlicky and thick, unlike anything Ive ever had before.
