Everyone's been talking about ramen lately -- especially the ramen at Goro & Gun. What I want to talk about are its wings. "We're gonna drive Buffalo Wild Wings out of business," chef David Coffman j... More »

While half the city was gorging themselves on ramen at Goro & Gun this weekend, I lucked upon a less crowded spot to slurp noodles: the front patio of Inversion Coffee House, where brand-new food truc... More »

I'd give it a 2.5 star really because to me it wasn't bad and it wasn't really all that good. I'm not certain I know what "real" ramen is but I do know a few places where I get better tasting ramen than this place and that disappoints me to no end because I was really hoping for a great place. The menu was really short which is fine if you nail what you are doing. The chefs that are involved in this endeavor should be able to put out stellar food but what I got was a broth that seemed like it was made with a rue that tasted a little of flour which I am guessing isn't how it is supposed to taste and some noodles that were all clumped together. Additionally, this was a small bowl of ramen, maybe 20-30% smaller than Kata Robata and Soma.
I really want to love this place and might give it another shot if I start hearing some really good things about it, otherwise I'm going to Kata Robata, Soma or Café Kubo for my Ramen.
If this is any indication of what Houston is expecting REAL ramen to be, you have totally missed the mark. What's worse, this might set the bar for common ramen shops so low that it's offensive to Japanese cuisine.
The ramen was way too oily, the noodles were too soft (fell apart) and the broth was unacceptable. Not only that, they had added special Houston delicacies to the menu to liven it up. What a shame. Let me educate everyone here who isn't familiar with real ramen. A ramen shop is known for its ramen. You don't add 16 other items like fried chicken to hopefully sell other things that taste better.
This is a really really really bad start.
