No, the fast-food booths and cafeteria trays on the walls aren't a mistake: Bantam King operates within a renovated Burger King. Ramen with Sapporo-made noodles and a clear chicken-based broth is the speciality here, but don't overlook the fried chicken. The family-style platter is served with an array of sides, including coleslaw, mac & cheese, and Japanese potato salad. It's the perfect complement to all that salty broth.
