Kizuki Ramen & Izakaya
Wicker Park's Kizuki Ramen is part of a Japanese chain. Tonkotsu broth is their specialty, and they roast their pork bones before boiling them, giving the soup an extra layer of depth and smokiness. Their menu also includes yuzu shio ramen with a pork and chicken broth mix, and tsukemen—where noodles are served separately from the soup and are dunked into it before each bite. The broth is so satisfying that you'll wish you could treat it like a jacuzzi and dip yourself.
