Otaku Ramen was Nashville’s first solely ramen spot when it opened in 2016, and it remains one of the best places to eat it in the city. There are seven different options to choose from, like pork, chicken, miso, and mazeman (brothless), along with Southern twists like the Tennessee Tonkotsu with pork confit and hot chicken bao buns. There’s also a bar in the back where you can sample Japanese beers, sake, and whiskey cocktails while you wait or once you’re finished.
