Young Japanese visionary and entrepreneur Ryu Isobe brings handcrafted, customizable recipes to this unique little nook on Melrose. Pop in before 3am on weekends to place your order on one of the iPads secured to a wall up front—a popular set up in Japan. Interacting with only the touch screen (which can be a plus when you’re hungry and bleary-eyed at certain wee hours), you choose a base ramen bowl—either The Naked Ramen ($9) or the standard tonkotsu—before flicking across the screen to select your add-ins, such as pork, tofu, green onions and dried seaweed. Grab yourself a beer, swipe your credit card and within a few minutes, you’ll wonder why every late night dining experience can’t be so comfortingly anti-social.
