Ooink is a small ramen spot in a neighborhood packed with lots of other places to eat noodle soup. But this one stands out because the sliced pork on top is the most tender in town, and the gyoza dumplings are pretty massive. Both of those things make up for the fact that a) this place replaced Vostok (a dumpling place we loved), and b) you could probably never eat with a group in here. So, pop in alone or with one other person when a hot bowl of broth feels right - like when you have a cold, or need to steam your face.
