If you follow me on social media you will see my search for the best ramen noodles in the USA. Why? After living in Japan for many years and eating amazing ramen noodles, I have been on a search to find and eat ramen noodles where I go. Well, there have been many fails, but I did find the most amazing ramen in Wichita, KS at Yokohama Ramen Joint.
Yes, the best I’ve found so far has been in the Midwest. The owner is from Yokohama, Japan. So this is the real deal! It’s like my family and I are back in Japan eating ramen. This is handmade noodles (maybe frozen) and homemade broth, not the cup a ramen you buy at the grocery store and add hot water. But I did visit the Yokohama Cup Noodles museum when I lived in Japan, so check out that post here and so check out this post on Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum here.
Each trip to Wichita always includes making sure to go to Yokohama Ramen Joint. Yes, it’s that good, it’s the best damn noodles for sure in the Midwest. The restaurant decor and size is very Japanese. It’s small like many of the ramen places I’ve been to in the past. The photos on the wall show the Yokohama area near Landmark Tower area.
This visit we ordered Chicken Crispers, Tonkatsu, and two bowls of Miso Ramen with one bowl having extra noodles. The chicken crispers were delicious. This appetizer is Japanese seasoned crispy chicken with the skin.
I didn’t know anything about tonkatsu until living in Japan. It’s good, especially with Japanese curry.
Miso ramen is my favorite, I love the buttery taste and the corn. The miso ramen is a miso base, chashu, egg, corn, green onion, bean sprouts, and butter. Yummy goodness in a bowl. But I always order without the bean sprouts, as I’m not a fan of them.
Do you like ramen? What’s your favorite restaurant to get ramen?
