Nama Ramen

6565 Babcock Road, Suite 19, (210) 641-2888,

Found on the city’s North Side, Nama Ramen offers a noodle soup that features a very light broth, which is perfect for lunch. The bowl is beautifully put together and the texture of the noodles is softer than those at Kimura. We ordered the shoyu ramen, made from chicken and soy sauce stock. The noodles match the ones we used to make late at night over our stove during those late night college study sessions, except Nama Ramen decidedly doesn’t use a chicken-flavored packet. The pork, our favorite ingredient in Nama Ramen’s ramen, is tender and you can easily bite into it. The ramen was rounded out with wood ear mushrooms, naruto maki and finely diced green onion. Ramen add-ons include pork belly (we’re sensing a pattern here), corn, soft-boiled egg, bamboo shoots, nori, hot oil, fish cakes and extra noodles. Get those extra noodles!

Cost: $8.25 ramen with option to add more ingredients ranging from 60 cents to $2
