Before noming on some of the best ramen in the city, you have to start off with a couple appetizers to get your belly ready for all the goodness that’s about to come its way. My recommendation? The karaage. Karaage is Japanese fried chicken and here, it’s super tender and moist. I like to squeeze the lemon slice all over the chicken before dipping each piece into the mayo mixture and pepper flakes.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever ordered ramen without getting pork buns. Little buns of joy is what they are.
The ‘deluxe ramen’ comes with extra pork (5 pieces!), roe, corn, an egg, nori seaweed, onions, and scallions. It’s a large bowl of deliciousness, so make sure you’re hungry if you get the deluxe.
The ‘hakata spicy ramen’ is a little simpler with fewer toppings and as the name says, comes with a good kick. What I also love about Hide-Chan is that you can choose how firm you like your noodles and the type of broth you want. $10-$15 a bowl here is well worth it.
