When in Wheaton this is our go to ramen restaurant. I think this restaurant has among the best ramen in the D.C. Area. If you are vegetarian or vegan they have two choices both are fantastic. The meat based soups are varied in flavor, heat,...More

We had Chanpon-men, Tan-Tan men & Staminia Ramen. The broth based is solid full taste! Chanpon-men is light broth but full of shrimp, squid, crab cake and tons of vegi. Tan-Tan, is favorable with sesame and peanut sauce not too spicy. Staminia by far is...More

Cute Japanese Ramen restaurant, which specializes in Ramens from the Sapporo in Hokkaido (the North island of Japan). Not terribly spicy, but most Japanese food isn't. Disadvantages are they are not always open in the middle of the afternoon and they are cash only. Nevertheless,...More

Miso sopporo is my "go to" and it is delicious. I get it with the cabbage add-on. Other add-ons are corn, extra meat, egg, and more. CASH ONLY. Best ramen I have had.

My husband really liked the meat version, but I thought the broth for the vegetarian version tasted a bit funny. I'll stick with Daikaya downtown for now, I guess!

Ren's is not a fancy place but you can get really good ramen. They have a few basic ramens and some specials they write on the board. I am vegan and I wasn't disappointed. The salty ramen with veggies was very flavorful. My husband had...More

Ramen here is decent overall, good broth and noodles though the cha-su I felt could have been alittle more flavorful. I've tried all broths and personally I feel the spicy miso packs the most flavor. Only gripe bout this place is the limited parking and...More

A decent neighborhood place. We had the miso ramen. Portions were huge. Broth was OK - I found myself adding a lot of togarashi, which tells me I thought it needed something. At the same time, I couldn't stop eating it. The place wasn't very...More
