Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The new Kickstarter funded ramen spot from chef Shin Thompson has finally opened in the heart of Wicker Park. The sleek and narrow storefront is lined with wood counters and stools, and the speakers blare with thumpy hip-hop. Four different versions of ramen anchor the menu, but it’s the restaurant’s namesake dish, Furious Ramen, that really makes a statement. The miso-based broth has a lip-numbing heat that burns without being overwhelming, and is accompanied by an impeccable cooked egg that splits open with the consistency of velvet custard. Snappy fresh noodles are a treat, made daily in the large machine behind the counter. The soup is packed with meaty toppings—a melty pork belly and beef brisket—but it’s the surprisingly tender and bright marinated mushrooms that really shine.
