Tenei makes the best ramen in South Lake Union. It’s a great place to go if you work in the neighborhood and want to have a fun lunch with your coworkers where you only need to talk about work for a couple minutes. We’re big fans of the miso ramen, which is creamy, a little spicy, and full of chewy housemade noodles - and you can even get your soup as a lunch combo alongside a few pieces of nigiri.
