College kids and ramen go together like peanut butter and jelly (which, now that we think of it, students love too). Tempe’s favorite noodle bar is conveniently located on University Drive in the heart of ASU’s campus, serving ramen, udon, rice bowls, and drinks like boba slushies, tea, beer, and sake. And this ramen is nothing like the plastic package you paid a handful of coins for. Republic Ramen & Noodles injects four varieties of broth – miso, shoyu, shio, and spicy – with meaty flavors and spices and lets it simmer for hours. When served, the noodles pool at the bottom of the bowl, and succulent toppings like fatty pork, hard-boiled eggs, naruto fish paste, tofu, garlic puree, and bean sprouts are added on top. For a cheap, light meal, the Japanese restaurant also serves appetizers for three to four bucks, including gyoza (fried dumplings with pork, scallion, and ginger), shrimp purses, seaweed salad, squid salad, and vegetable tempura.
I visited Republic Ramen & Noodles for the first time about a week ago. My boyfriend & I were planning on stopping at Subway, saw this place, and decided to try it out instead. The atmosphere inside the place is really great, and the people working there were more than happy to explain things on the menu. I ordered a couple of appetizers, as I wasn't too hungry, and both were great. It's hard to go wrong with edamame & veggie tempura, but my boyfriend also really enjoyed his big bowl of ramen, and he had plenty of left-overs to take home! We're definitely planning on going back- hopefully when I'm a little more hungry this time! There's also a huge boba/tea bar inside- I've heard the peach tea boba is pretty spectacular, but I've yet to try it out for myself!
Ramen may not be brain food, but it's been fueling starving college students on a budget for many years. And now a new noodle shop is coming to Tempe -- in walking distance of ASU and just a chopstick... More »
You know the dried ramen that comes with flavor pouches? Toss that garbage in the trash. Real ramen requires a broth injected with meaty flavors and spices over hours. The noodles form a base on top of which succulent toppings like fatty pork, hard-boiled eggs, naruto fish paste, and bean sprouts are added. Republic Ramen in Tempe is the real deal. In fact, Republic Ramen pays tribute to the Japanese noodle soup standard with miso, shoyu, and shio broth varieties as well as branching out... More »
