This traditional ramen shop with a late-night Japanese pub on the second floor features an open kitchen where patrons can watch noodles being made by hand. Variations of ramen are offered, from vegetarian (roasted shiitake mushrooms, mustard greens, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, scallion and nori) to Tonkatsu (roasted Kurobuta pork belly, black kale, wood ear mushrooms, pickled ginger and scallion in a rich pork bone broth). Gluten-free noodles are also available. A huge bowl of ramen with roasted pork belly, collard greens and a soy marinated egg was delicious. Upstairs, the Japanese gastropub offers an assortment of small plates, including a section devoted to bite-size grilled meats popular in Japan. Other small plates cover the spectrum from smoked octopus and kombu salad to spicy miso chicken wings.
