Open for only five days a week-- and only 4hrs on weekdays, Aloha Ramen’s successful injection of Hawaiian sensibility into the traditional Japanese dish is unreal. The perfect example? Aloha’s Kahlua Pork Ramen, which takes one of Hawaii’s signature dishes to the next level.
Just off 45th, Ramen Man capitalizes on the beauty of simplicity. Though their menu might seem basic, their broth packs a flavorful punch. The best part? Ramen Man offers unlimited boiled eggs with your bowl of ramen.
The teeny-tiny Tsukushinbo dishes up its infamous ramen just once a week, only on Fridays. The spot only makes about 50 bowls, so check 'em out to get it while it’s hot.

The dude behind the ID's tiny original Samurai is bringing his outrageously porky ramen to the U-District.
Kukai Ramen & Izakaya serves "traditional, authentic, and delicious Japanese ramen" (or other deliciousness like grilled onigiri rice balls, and Tokyo-style octopus dumplings). Their ramen dishes are out of the world, and thankfully they have locations all over Seattle so that you are always close to some tasty ramen.
This combination restaurant and bar is run by the husband-wife cooking team of Seif Chirchi and Rachel Yang, both of whom were contestants on Iron Chef America. If that wasn't enough to reel you in, the married couple combines American and Korean cuisine to create a menu of fusion dishes (like the moo shu pork dumpling and smoked oyster po-boy in a Korean pancake) unique to the restaurant. There's also a selection of signature cocktails that you can sample before/during your meal.
