Hajimaru is a small BYOB ramen shop on Girard in Fishtown, and they have some of the best noodle soups in the area. You can take your Hakata-style ramen (made with pork tonkatsu broth) to go, have it delivered, or eat it at one of the few small tables in the storefront. Other than the six different types of Hakata ramen and one vegetable ramen on the menu, they also have skewers, rice bowls, and appetizers like gyoza and edamame.
