Menya Goku is a North Center ramen spot from the same team behind Logan Square's Ramen Wasabi. The main draw here is tantanmen, a ramen whose origins are rooted in the Sichuan province of China. Their take on the dish comes with a savory pork broth that's spiced with tingly peppercorns, and has a slight nuttiness from sesame. It’s also loaded with thin noodles, bok choy, tender menma, and nikumiso ground pork. Their brightly lit dining room is small and narrow, with counter seats and small booths, so it’s ideal for a solo meal or date night. When you've turned into a human popsicle in the middle of December, it's the perfect place to help you defrost yourself.
