Seattle Weekly's Description

An all-ramen restaurant with no plastic packets? Yup, Samurai Noodle does it all in-house, serving huge, redolent bowls of broth that took much longer than 90 seconds to concoct (but still make for cheap eats). The house specialty, tonkotsu ramen, rivals a bowl of gravy in its richness. Though the recipe is subject to a nondisclosure agreement with a Japanese ramen company, Samurai's chef simmers pork bones for hours, creating an oinky liquor with the color and creaminess of a good cafe au lait. There are other ramens at Samurai, including versions with chicken, soy, seasonal yuzu, and cold-fish broths, but none come so bundled with memories of Christmas dinner.

    A clothes closet feels spacious by comparison, but this International District ramen-ya (along with its sibling on the Ave) is a near-perfect rendition of the tiny noodle shops of Japan.

    Outstanding ramen, albeit quite pricey. "Armored" Shouryu bowl with pork was excellent. Add a Asahi beer for a drink, and you've got a great way to unwind your work day! :)

    Nine buck ramen, yea its worth it. Tiny place but service is fast.

  • Jane H. on 08/05/11

    The Tonkatsu is #1 here for a reason. That pork broth is so rich and delicious. For a change order the Miso Ramen and fish cake.
