Marufuku Ramen

The SF-based chain (which now has seven other locations across the country) nails the art of Hakata-style ramen. So it’s not hard to see why this casual spot attracts hordes of noodle soup enthusiasts nightly. The creamy broth hits you like an intensely porky flavor bomb after your first sip. The thin noodles are cooked to bouncy perfection every time, and the tender chashu pork belly almost dissolves in your mouth. We’ll come up with any excuse to get here, including Friday night dates, midweek lunches, and group dinners with friends who don’t mind waiting an hour for flawless ramen.
