If an episode of Master of None ever took place in Ballston (budget cuts?), Aziz Ansari would eat at Yona. This ramen spot is perfect for a date or dinner with a friend - the space is small (around 50 seats), it looks like a warehouse mixed with a Swedish cabin, and there’s usually some ’90s hip-hop jams playing. Get the miso porky ramen and JFK (japanese fried chicken), and wash it all down with some sake.
Yona is permanently closed.
