1. Ramen Boy 204 N 9th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107 (Chinatown)

Keeping the surname of its "Japas"-slinging Yakitori forebear but moving from snacks to soup, Ramen Boy's hitting Chinatown with the city's first proper ramen shop, housed in a shoulder-bumping, bamboo-wrapped joint with an open kitchen visible from a long counter sporting hand-carved stools, a smattering of tables, and bowls of completely delicious ramen -- the kind that aren't made in a giant, fridge-sized microwave by a college kid whose mom refuses to put money on his meal card.
