The tonkotsu from E Ramen in Bridgeport is one of the creamiest versions in Chicago—it’s thick and opaque, with the smoothness of a luxurious hand cream. And like that lotion, a bowl at this small ramen spot is just as soothing. We recommend getting the spicy version which balances the intense creaminess with a combination of heat, sweetness from chashu and tender menma, and thick chewy noodles. If rich pork broth is not your style, they also have a great chicken ramen. This is a much lighter soup with thin noodles, green onions, and bok choy for some added crispness. The space is quite small, so it's perfect for solo dining, or a one-on-one catch-up with a friend.
