Located in Fenway's swanky Verb Hotel, comic-inspired Hojoko serves up Japanese fare with pub style -- over a game of pacman or galaga on an old-school arcade machine (which you'll probably use as your table) you can feast on big servings of King crab over spicy mayo, roll after roll of spicy sushi, eastern-style burgers like the Dogzilla, and pitchers galore of Sapporo or, even better, sake shots.
One of the most exciting places in the city for exotic food and drink, Hojoko in the Verb Hotel has made quite a name for itself over the years thanks to its unique take on Asian classics and its thriving late-night party atmosphere. You’ll only find two types of ramen on the menu, so you can assume each is a tried-and-true recipe. The “Funky Chicken Ramen” comes with a fragrant 48-hour chicken broth, soy egg, menma, and robata grilled koji chicken. If you like things a little spicy, we recommend you add the house-made fermented chili relish for just a buck. The spicy miso ramen, meanwhile, features the same chicken broth but swaps out chicken for spicy pork and adds corn tempura.
