There is something so comforting about a hearty bowl of ramen filled with uber soft noodles, fresh vegetables and tender slices of chicken, pork or beef swimming in a deliciously spicy broth. Whether it’s a late night indulgence or a afternoon lunch, we have rounded up five of the best spots in Boston for ramen.

 

1 Shojo

Ramen takes on a different form at Shojo located in Chinatown. You won't find a traditional brothy bowl here. Instead think soft noodles in a peanut sauce with cucumber, red grapes, and cilantro. It doesn't get more flavor packed than this.
9A Tyler Street Boston, MA 02111

2 Blue Dragon

The lunch menu at the award-winning Blue Dragon shines in the Fort Point Channel at the East-meets-West gastropub owned by celebrity chef Ming Tsai. Here, you can indulge in a hearty bowl of house ramen filled with fresh, soft noodles. Come early as it's only available on the lunch menu.

3 Yume Wo Katare

Across the bridge, ramen devotees flock to Yume Wo Katare for its enormous bowls of spicy ramen. We love the Kota's Special Spicy Ramen bowls that are often available in limited quantities so be sure to arrive early to get your fill and avoid the frequent waits that come with its impressive reputation as being one of the best in the city. The restaurant is only open for dinner.
1923 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, MA 02140

4 UNI

At UNI in Back Bay, it's all about the late night menu at Ken Oringer's Japanese restaurant. Tucked inside the Eliot Hotel, this hidden gem best known for its impressive menu of sushi churns out delicious bowls of rotating ramen offerings starting at 10:30 p.m. available on Fridays and Saturdays.
370 Commonwealth Avenue Boston, MA 02215

5 Myers + Chang

Myers + Chang in the South End takes ramen to a lighter level. Available on the Asian fusion lunch menu at chef/owners Joanne Chang and Christopher Myers' restaurant, the simple dish features ramen noodles, fermented tofu and a quail egg. This is the best place to indulge early when you can't wait for dinner.
