Local Japanese chain Tajima is known for its ramen bowls (made with your choice of thin or thick noodles) and izakaya small plates. Traditionalists come to slurp on the namesake Tajima pork belly tonkotsu broth, but a meal here isn't complete without a starter of octopus and pan-fried pork dumplings. The kitchen is open late Thursday through Saturday nights -- good news for anyone whose salty cravings tend to be strongest outside of traditional dining hours.
