Slurp It Up: The Best Ramen Restaurants in the World
As more food cultures make their way to North America, it’s normal to see restaurants advertising “their” versions of classics from other cultures.
One food that has been heavily adapted to the North American palate is ramen, which is available in most large cities and has even made appearances in smaller towns. In Japan, ramen is a national specialty, and each region prides themselves on their own flavor profile, toppings, and preparation method, ranging from the miso broth of Hokkaido to the thin noodles and rich pork broth of Hakata ramen.
Today, we’ve brought you some of the best ramen restaurants — known as ramen-ya — in the world. Each restaurant has a different specialty, and all are equally worthy of the reverence and delight they inspire in their customers.
