With a name that translates from Japanese as “cool,” it’s no wonder this airy restaurant shines brighter than its low-key strip mall surroundings. Iki specializes in tangy, highly repeatable yuzu shio ramen; yuzu zest and yuzu juice temper the richness from slow-braised Niman Ranch pork belly slabs, along with the standard accompaniments, all nestled in a clear, organic chicken broth made with house dashi. Add hanjuku (half-cooked) seasoned egg for a different taste of concentrated poultry flavor.
How to order: Walk-ins only for dine in. Order for pickup via their website.
