If there are two things you can count on, it's that this Capitol Hill spot will always satisfy a ramen craving, and that there’ll always be a wait. But time has no meaning when it comes to the best Hakata-style ramen in town.

While it’s hard to go wrong at Danbo, we love the classic rekka style ramen with tonkotsu broth, super thin and firm noodles, and more customization options than Build-A-Bear Workshop. Ask for extra richness (thanks, lard) and more karadare if you like your broth silky and spicy. And there’s plenty of seating here for solo diners, which is ideal for a ramen outing that solely involves the sound of your own slurping and a constant loop of DIY home improvement TikToks.
