Columbia students are spoiled having this cozy, wood-lined ramen spot only a few blocks from campus, replacing those classic styrofoam-packaged noodles with authentic, high-quality soups that give downtown hotspots a run for their money. Consider the heaping portion of house-specialty hakata tonkotsu, in which slow-cooked pork bones give the broth and its thin noodles a creamy consistency ideal for a chilly day. There are unique and spicy options, too, like green coconut Thai curry ramen and a chicken-broth kimchee ramen. If you’re coming with friends, be sure to order a pitcher of Sapporo for the table.
