Menya Musashi Niten Ichiryu
The second US location of this Japan-based chain opened in 2018 to little fanfare, but for lovers of the tsukemen, or dipping-style ramen, it was an important development for the Seattle ramen scene. For this specialty, Menya Musashi serves a thick, rich pork and seafood broth on the side, and the flat, fettuccine-with noodles separately, so that diners can dip the noodles as they eat. For noodle lovers, this is the place: They nail the texture, and the dipping style keeps them from overcooking as you eat. Currently, they offer all the ramen both cooked and as a kit.
