Logan Square's Ramen Wasabi spends 45 hours making their tonkotsu broth, which is particularly impressive considering we can’t even watch a two-hour-long movie on Netflix without breaking it up into four parts. This long cooking process results in an incredibly silky pork bone broth, that when accompanied by thick noodles, fatty pork belly, and an oozing soft boiled egg, is one of the best tonkotsu ramens in the city.
Though most of their bowls are pork-based, they also have a mushroom-based ramen that's a perfect vegan option. Grab a solo seat at the bar or come for a casual date night in their softly lit, often-packed dining room, where you can enjoy a comforting bowl of noodles along with a well-curated indie and hip-hop playlist.
