Brickell’s go-to, late-night ramen spot is about as close to eating on the streets of Tokyo as you’re getting in South Florida. The cash-only spot reserved space for only 19 guests, which means lines can get exceedingly long, especially after the bars let out. Everything’s served in a bone marrow broth too, so sadly, vegans, you’re out of luck.
When your city regularly has nights with temperatures in the upper 80s, it shouldn’t come as a surprise when ramen shops take a while to catch on. So while for years it seemed other American cities had block after block of places to get hot, steaming bowls of Japanese noodle soup, finding a place to go for ramen in Miami was tough. But warm weather be darned, we’ve finally gotten in on the action. And in the past few years, our city has seen dozens of first-rate noodle spots pop up serving well into the wee hours of the morning. You’ll find them in busy Brickell bars, spartan strip malls in Miami and bustling Miami food halls. Each one offers its own take on the comforting Japanese classic so even if you’ve already had one, it’s worth giving one of these Miami ramen shops a whirl.
