We don’t know any place where you can order perfectly balanced khao soi alongside some of the best ramen in town. Other than Nute’s, that is. It’s a cozy Japanese and Thai noodle house in Bernal Heights where we always have a great time. Spicy miso ramen is a fiery affair, and the tonkotsu ramen is smoky from roasted black garlic oil—make sure to add on the pork belly with blistered skins. Juicy karaage, corn tempura, and pork-stuffed gyoza will complete the casual night. Since Nute’s is busy at all times and only has a handful of tables inside, prepare to wait.
