Winner of the 2019 Readers’ Choice for Best Ramen, as well as the 2018 Critic’s Pick for Best Japanese, this Audubon Park hotspot, located in East End Market, offers a modern take on a traditional ramen bar. Be prepared to wait—90 minutes most nights; they don’t take reservations—but know that the wait is worth it. Chef/owner Sonny Nguyen cooks up a sterling assortment of pork, chicken and vegetable broth ramen with house-made noodles, as well as otherworldly crispy wings in kimchi butter. And the grilled octopus dish may be the best-tasting bargain in town. More accolades: Our dining critic awarded Nguyen an Empire-Building Award in the 2019 Dining Awards. (The chef has opened a second restaurant and more are on the way.)
