Izakaya Roku

In addition to ramen, this spot is known for its Japanese tapas-style small plates—skewers and bite-sized fried snacks—that pair well beer and sake.

Roku nails the feel—and food—of an authentic izakaya. Nightly menu additions, written in Japanese characters, are taped to the black-painted walls alongside pin-up style Japanese advertisements. Of the ramen flavors—including regular, garlic, spicy, curry and more—the red tonkotsu ramen is best. The steaming, deftly spiced bowl is filled with pork, mushrooms, green onion and a vibrant orange, runny egg. In addition to ramen, this spot is known for its Japanese tapas-style small plates—skewers and bite-sized fried snacks—that pair well beer and sake. Our favorite? Three words: bacon-wrapped mochi.
