Another installment in my Ramen Around Town series, this time in Portland: the broth and ingredients were on par with other good ramen shops. The outstanding ingredient, though, was a charred garlic oil. That took it from good to amazing! Nice location with natural light.

Delicious ramen in a simple setting. Great options for vegetarians friendly service too. The noodles were the best part!

My wife and I visited this establishment during our weekend trip to Portland. I was looking forward to good ramen and this one had pretty good reviews on Google. For $12-14 bowls of ramen I wish it would've been better. Mine had all the necessary ingredients, charsiu, veggies, egg, seaweed, etc. My wife's shoyu ramen tasted just like straight soy sauce with hot water. Not good as all. It didn't have meat in it but mushrooms and that was edible but fair from a flavor bomb. I wouldn't eat here again.

Noodles were cooked perfect, broth was flavorful, pork belly delicious with an add on of pork shoulder and broccoli rabe. Woah- this place is off the hook good.

Nice place for a quick lunch or dinner of ramen. I ordered the spicy red miso ramen and enjoyed it. Surprised there were several Japanese people dining at the restaurant!
