The beauty of this dive bar–cum–restaurant is in its straightforwardness: ramen is basically all they sell. Which is not to say that there aren’t choices—e.g., regular or miso broth (the latter if you prefer your ramen saltier). But every patron of Christopher Huang’s Ninja Ramen gets the same delicious bowlful of fresh Sun Noodles, fatty pork belly, and perfectly soft-boiled eggs. Bonus: every order comes with a second serving of noodles. Extra-special bonus: there are two kinds of Hitachino Japanese beer on draft, plus plenty of Japanese whiskey at the bar, perfect if you want to enjoy a boilermaker—a serving of each—with your noodles.
