Koreans beat Americans to the current Japanese ramen craze raging in the U.S., as evidenced by this edgy storefront (which looks like a fashion-forward concrete bunker) that opened way back in 2009. Korean-owned Umaido throws out way more options and garnishes than would be traditional in Japan. Beyond the classic tonkotsu (with slices of roast pork and a rich, cloudy broth made by simmering pork bones), the restaurant touts ramen variations submerged in soy milk, seafood and chicken broths, and hot sauce. The food arrives quickly, but the solicitous service encourages you to take your time slurping your hefty bowl of noodles.
