Obsessive chowhounds agree: Start to finish, this 18-seat gem gives you the authentic ramen experience. The staff shouts “Irashaimase!” upon entry, then invites you to choose between two no-frills options: a bowl of pork ramen ($12) or a bowl of pork ramen with extra thick-sliced pork ($14). If you successfully finish your entire (enormous) bowl, you’ll receive a call out: “We have a perfect!” Most guests manage a “s/he did a good job!” meaning they made it through the noodles but not the broth. Yes, you might wait outside to get a seat, and yes, it’s still worth it—the restaurant’s name, after all, translates to “talk about your dreams.”
