My favorite ramen place is one I rarely get a chance to visit, because they close so early (7:30pm on a Friday!). But it is so good — the ramen is amazing, the broth is even better, and it comes with sides too. The interior of the shop leaves a bit to be desired (it’s in the middle of a grocery store), but with ramen this good, I don’t care at all.
