1. Daruma Ramen 612B E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701 (Dirty 6th)

Obviously named after the doll of a legless Buddist monk, Daruma's a tiny 28-seat Kome offshoot slinging a short-but-sweet menu that eschews their signature pork tonkatsu broth in favor of whole chicken broth. Their delicious menu includes the Shio (roasted chicken, boiled egg, bok choy, sesame seeds, goji berry), hybrid chicken/seafood stock Shoyu, a Miso holdover from their first location (ground chicken, soy sauce-flavored boiled egg, shredded red pepper), and even a Vegan option.
