Hiro Ramen House is a small, low-key ramen spot in Center City that’s open every day for lunch and dinner. It’s dark inside, with just a few tables and a bar, but that makes it a perfect place to stop for a quick bowl of soup during work by yourself, or with a few coworkers when you’re trying to hide from the rest of your office. The menu is mostly ramen, with variations like chicken soy or a spicy version called “Gates of Hell,” plus smaller plates like pork gyoza and seaweed salad.
