This Lakeview “Asian street food” spot has several types of ramen, starting with a pretty tasty pork tonkotsu broth and chewy noodles in a nice, if slightly smallish, bowl. While it may not win the prize for "Best Ramen," it could take what’s arguably an even more important title: "Best Ramen That GrubHub Will Deliver in Lakeview."
A ramen place opened in the middle of Lincoln Park in the midst of Chicago’s ramen fever, and nobody noticed? Hard to believe, but it’s true. This tiny year-old Korean-Japanese joint serves nice sushi and comfy dishes including a tonkotsu ramen that’s a little thin, broth-wise, but full of high-quality accoutrements. It’s enough to make us want to go back to check out the seafood and Korean-style beef ramen, too.

A few years ago this might have been the best and most authentic bowl of ramen in the city. It looks the part (we especially like the gooey egg), but the broth doesn’t quite have the unctuous porkiness of the best places that have sprung up in the last couple of years. Still, give it props for being a traditional, no-funny-business bowl.
