#1 Menya Shi Shi Do

Housed in a tiny noodle house, this humble spot has gained the interest of ramen lovers for their exquisite flavors with the broth cooked for more than 48 hours for an authentic Hakata taste absorbed by ramen noodles cooked to the utmost al-dente texture and garnished with melting in the mouth pork slab, chives, and all the good stuff.

#2 Ramen Bankara

Old but gold. Leading the ramen scene nationally, Bankara serves us beautiful flavors 4 styles: Hakata-style Tonkotsu ramen, Sapporo-style Miso Ramen, and Tsukemen. Milky yet not overwhelming, thick in flavor yet light enough for the noodles to balance it out with the pork belly slices gleaming is one heck of a treat on a sick cold evening. While you’re at it, the green tea ice cream is not to be missed.

#4 Ramen Seirock-ya Uptown

The star here is stolen by the broth. Uproaring in Indonesia from Japan and here to awaken your senses with a creamy chicken based broth is their Toripaitan which is a rich, umami-packed bowl of noodles topped with a tender chicken slice and eggs cooked right with the yolks still runny enriching the bowl of goodness.

#5 Aori Ramen

While steep in terms of price, Aori Ramen is about the experience while dining without missing the fact that k-pop fans would go crazy over this Japanese ramen joint by the fact that it’s owned by Big Bang’s very own Seungri. Perfect for a one-person meal is their Aori Ramen decked with five toppings namely barbecued marinated pork, Japanese bunching onion, soft boiled egg, dried seaweed, and bamboo shoot. Spicy level, garlic, and onion are served on the side for the palates looking for more.

#6 Mitsuyado Seimen – Tsukemen

Boasting an artistic touch of Japanese interior design with long tables comfortable for a dine-in with the fam, they’ve got Tsukemen – thick house-made wheat noodles served with a separate bowl of broth with kamaboko and pickle slices. Similar to ramen yet different if you know what I mean. The combination of cold noodles in a hot broth is a refreshing combination one can’t find anywhere else.

#7 Kagura Tokyo Chicken Ramen @Pork Free

Lot 10 has taught us that life can exceed its expectation even if pork isn’t involved in the broth.  Specializing in serving up delicious bowls of chicken based ramen, you’ve got the clear or creamy type. Encompassed of noodles thin, delicate and lightly springy complements the umami flavor peeking through the broth with chunky pieces of the chicken meat filling up the bowl, it’s a treat all the way.

#8 Ramen Izakaya Kazushi

Sourcing out the freshest of ingredients, Ramen Izakaya Kazushi is pretty known for their extensive menu of Japanese favorites especially the plump gyoza and Shoyu Ramen with an option of half or full portion packed with flavor yet still light on the palate and the noodle springy, just the way we like it. And the gyoza needs no introduction, rather a review of its soft, juicy, oil-less perfection.

#9 Ippudo Ramen

It ain’t hype when it’s the bomb to start off with. Known for Hakata-style ramens, Ippudo excites the ramen scene with their rich Tonkotsu broth, simmered down for a stretch of hours resulting in a rich addicting savor. Conventional Tonkotsu served as Akamaru Shinaji exuding feistiness with the miso paste and garlic oil fusing together, enhancing the porcine essence of the creamy soup. It’s a complete feeling when the thin noodles bounce off with a nice coat of the broth one will enjoy till the very last scoop, wishing it could have been more.
