You might know Waraku as the place to hit up when the lines at Marufuku and Hinodeya are ungodly long. But the ramen at this Japantown spot stands on its own. They have more variety than other places, and each type is excellent across the board, from the spicy tantan men and chicken shoyu ramen to the braised pork belly-filled tonkotsu with black garlic and vegetarian ramen topped with Impossible meat. All of the options are great, but if you can’t choose go with tsukemen. We’d eat a whole bowl of the springy noodles plain. And the mushrooms and bean sprouts that come on the side cut through the richness of the broth nicely.
