Description

The long lines that greeted this place when it first opened in December 2013 may be gone, but the quality offerings remain, even as it’s a little easier to get a table at the West Houston soup stand. Ramen Jin serves four kinds of its signature dish: tonkotsu, sesame (a cold ramen), miso, and curry, with a tonkotsu shoyu and veggie coming soon. The noodles are firm and thin, and the mushrooms nicely crunchy. Just don’t go looking for that milky-white broth most tonkotsu aficionados favor. Ramen Jin’s version has more of a hearty roast pork flavor—no surprise then that the fatty chashu pork that tops the ramen is excellent as well.
