Junkichi Robata Izakaya
Where we've featured it
If city council were to host a blind taste test of ramen in Seattle, the only one we could probably pick out of the bunch is Junkichi’s. The broth at this Capitol Hill spot is just the right amount of garlicky and the noodles are notably tender and flavorful.
Speaking of waiting for doors to open, you might be toying with the idea of heading to Tsukushinbo for some ramen. Don’t do that. Go to Junkichi instead. Not only are their noodles and shoyu broth better, but the dining room is more spacious, and the staff is super friendly. Add some char siu pork and sushi for good measure, too. Just avoid eye contact with the creepy little robot if Terminator (or Wall-E) gave you nightmares.
Junkichi is a new Japanese restaurant in Capitol Hill. They specialize in izakaya food (specifically things made on a robata grill). And they have a little robot that can apparently recognize your face on repeat visits.
