Komé: Sushi Kitchen

Komé in Ridgetop is a Japanese restaurant perhaps best known for its action-packed sushi rolls and their go-go sauce, a spicy mayo. But they also have a pretty broad menu that spans from homemade gyoza to nigiri to bento boxes (we like the grilled mackerel filet the best). There are also donburi rice bowls with options including Japanese beef curry, yakitori, and katsu.

Komé also makes very good ramen, including a phenomenal and well-rounded miso (with an umami mushroom base, chili oil, and chili threads), a vegetarian miso (topped with fried tofu skin), a more subtle tonkotsu that won’t bonk you over the head, and a delicate shoyu. Komé has also mastered the art of ramen to-go, as they are the only restaurant on this list that give you the option of cooking the noodles at home, which in our opinion makes for a vastly superior ramen takeout situation.
