Oiistar has a crazy *ss machine for making noodles in-house, and they’re cranking out great noodles as a result. In addition to the typical bowls you can get like pork belly ramen, there are also interesting and seasonal options. Try something like the “tikkamen” with chicken and masala or the “pozolmen” with pork loin and jalapeños for ramen outside the box. The space itself is ideal for a casual meal, no matter who you’re with.
Hit up Oiistar to get your slurp on, and don’t sleep on the pork buns either. The sleek modern design will hopefully make you forget it’s so cold outside, and the warmth of the ramen will definitely make you happy inside.
Another place to get quality ramen in the neighborhood. Oiistar’s space is minimally decorated - it feels a little like a wooden shoebox. In addition to ramen, they also do great shared dishes like buns and togarashi mussels. Come for a good solo meal, or with one or two friends (there’s not a ton of space), and prepare for a possible wait.
