Similar to when Old Navy throws “bae” into an ad, Chika Ramen Bar desperately wants to you think it’s cool. The basement spot in Center City follows a Blade Runner theme, which means there are neon lights and bartenders topping a drink called Syrup Nexus-Six with pumpkin togarashi foam. If you look past all that, though, Chika is really just a mediocre Japanese restaurant where people wait in line to eat ramen with rubbery pork and flavorless broth that allegedly simmers for 24 hours. The restaurant also serves a variety of handrolls and otsumami like bang bang shrimp, both of which you’ll forget about as soon as you get home. Instead, head to Hiro Ramen or Terakawa and order a bowl that’s worth the wait. You can always bring a glow stick if you require a Blade Runner aesthetic.
