Tan Tan Men at Slurping Turtle

Takashi Yagihashi’s foray into River North is the chef’s attempt to capture the taste of his noodle-slurping childhood in Japan. Based on the highlights of the menu—hamachi tartare in delicate little taro-root tacos, tan tan men ramen weighted with herb-packed pork meatballs, fried ramen noodles you toss with a dollop of spicy mustard for a dish called Chiyan Pon, and joyful desserts like softball-sized cream puffs—Yagihashi may have had the best childhood ever.

Love Slurping Turtle! Service is quick and friendly, and there's a great sake selection to start off your meal. Much of the seating is communal—just be prepared for it to be busy on weekend nights.
