Best Ramen Seattle | Top Ten Japanese Noodles Seattle
A fusion of Hawaii’s signature dishes in Aloha’s Kahlua Pork Ramen. Plenty of options with reasonable prices fill this modestly decorated noodle shop. $8 gets you a ramen plus gyoza combo. Also a must try is their Spicy Garlic Ramen and Garlic Fried Rice. Come early to avoid the line. They are only five days a week.
The secret is out that Tsukushinbo serves a killer Shoyu broth in Seattle. Friday is the only day Tsukushinbo makes this soy sauce based ramen so you better come early during lunch time. Serving limited portions only. If you missed out, don’t cry. Try their omakase and leave it to the Chef. All delicious and ridiculously fresh.
Unlimited AYCE hardboiled eggs are substituted for the traditional onsen soft boiled eggs. Ramen Man is a solid place for ramen. Their broth is very rich and deep. Option for their tender fatty pork instead of the chicken. There’s really no reason you would leave this place still hungry.
Chef Jason Harris runs a delicious farm to table Japanese restaurant. Their menu changes frequently depending on the season. In winter, I love a mean bowl of Mabo Ramen and a Spicy Tan Tan Ramen filled with ground pork and Kasu cream in a Szechuan style sesame broth. The Butabara pork belly stack is sinful on the side along with a Bourbon Amazake cocktail with a touch of five spice powder.
Hokkaido Ramen Santouka | 103 Bellevue Way Northeast, Bellevue, WA 98004, United States | +1 425-462-0141 | http://www.santouka-usa.com |
This franchise ramen chain I am so familiar with in Vancouver has opened in Seattle. Their Karamiso Tsukemen Ramen noodle with tonkotsu soup, thickened with umami, and spicy miso flavor is a delicious dry alternative to your regular soup program.
Revel and Quoin | 401 North 36th Street, Seattle, WA 98103, United States | +1 206-547-2040 | http://www.revelseattle.com/quoin |
Adjacent to the bar is a warm outdoor seating, metal firepit with handcrafted drinks. Handmade ramen noodles, pork belly and kimchi ramen is delicious. Although portions are a small, it comes with really good meat that is well flavored. Paired with kimchi pancakes and Kalbi burger? Outstanding.
Samurai Noodle | 606 5th Ave. S Seattle, WA, United States | +1 206-624-9321 | http://www.samurainoodle.com |
Samurai Noodle has a few locations in University District, the International District, and Capitol Hill. Their prices are reasonable and they have gluten free option. Recently, they came out with bacon tonkatsu ramen. What’s not to love about bacon? But if you are looking for spicy? Try their fiery spicy miso with pork belly.
Ginza Japanese Restaurant | 103 102nd Avenue Southeast, Bellevue, WA 98004, United States
+1 425-709-7072 | http://www.ginzaatbellevue.com |
Conveniently located in central Bellevue, Ginza has really good omakase sashimi and pumpkin fried rice. Their menu has a good selection. Asari Ramen noodle with clam and vegetable soup is also delicious. And if you like sour pickles, get the Takana ramen with mushroom and pork. It’s something different than your typical shio and shyo tonkatsu broth.
Kukai Ramen & Izakaya | 14845 Main Street, Bellevue, WA 98007, United States | +1 425-243-7527 | http://www.kukai-ramen.com |
Low sodium option is available at this traditional, authentic Japanese ramen shop. The Yuzu Shio Ramen made with the yuzu citrus fruit is refreshing with a light balanced broth. If you prefer something heavier than the Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen is for you. Enjoy a few side dishes like Takoyaki and chicken karaage deep fried in a light batter.
Well balanced izakaya menu with traditional Japanese dishes and sushi. Great selection of sake and prices are competitive. I love the noodles for having the right amount of fatty goodness. Still hungry? Get the Black Ramen with double toppings of garlic butter shoyu and add an egg. The deep meaty flavor should no doubt fill you up.
