Rudy’s Ramen in Noble Square keeps things simple. The short menu only has four appetizers and seven ramen options. There aren’t any super deluxe bowls with 37 toppings. Rudy’s sticks to the basics, and it’s perfect. Each bowl is balanced with rich-but-not-too-fatty pork broth (or a mushroom broth for vegetarians) and just a handful of toppings like menma, ajitama, along with springy noodles. The open dining room is simple, too—a few plant wall decals and basket lamps above the kitchen counter. But the staff and the eponymous Rudy keep the place from feeling sterile, often stopping by to chat. Plus, since it’s usually not too crowded, it's reliable for a last-minute dinner.
