1. Sakuramen 2441 18th Street NW, , Washington, DC , DC 20009 (Adams Morgan)

This subterranean noodle hideout (seriously, hide from the Adams Morgan crowds here) sports bamboo columns, a huge oak communal table, and an artistic rendering of Shoki, the Japanese guardian and "demon queller." Their selection of buns is well worth your time -- from spicy sweet pork to mushroom. Consider pairing them with their traditional shoyu gojiramen (chasu pork, scallions, nori, and sprouts) or the meat-lover's shoki bowl, filled with extra chashu and bulgogi.
