Hokkaido is a ramen chain that started in Japan, and somehow made its way to Seattle - with good reason. On a cold day (because of weather or air-conditioning) at work in your soul-crushing windowless office, a bowl of their miso ramen with perfectly tender pork and a side of pan fried gyoza is exactly what you need. Come for a solo meal or a round of chicken karaage in a booth with some friends.
