Ramen Tatsu-ya’s South Lamar location is just like original, just bigger and way closer to downtown. You can easily head here during your lunch hour, or for a quick dinner after work, but either way, make sure to switch it up from the classic Tonkotsu from time to time. We’re partial to the Mi-So-Hot and the Tsukemen dipping ramen, but it’s really impossible to go wrong.
