Hana Ramen Bar
Hana Ramen Bar is in a bare-bones space in an office park next to a Taco Bell, and serves the best ramen in town. The chef spends 3-5 days perfecting the rich tonkotsu broth that serves as the base for its noodle dishes. On a single-digit night at 7,000 feet, nothing beats the spicy tonkotsu, made with braised pork belly, bean sprouts, and red pickled ginger, and for vegans there’s an 18-ingredient ramen made with oat milk broth. Soup and noodles are the star, but Hana also offers a few appetizers and curry items to round out your meal—get the spicy gyoza, topped with homemade chili garlic chips.
