Ramen House Shinchan
The northwest suburbs have long been rife with world-class Japanese joints, but this humble strip mall storefront might just be the area’s most beloved ramen vendor. The cheery noodle shack peddles a particularly delicious Pork Tonkotsu, teeming with succulent braised pork in a complex, slow-simmered broth. An enticing Taiwanese take, kicked up with spicy ground pork and laden with soft, toothy egg noodles, is another sure fire bet.
