Shokudo is a Japanese ramen udon yakitori bar. The ramen here is made with authentic ingredients and put together in a simple, delish presentation. The broth is made in-house from scratch and slowly boiled over 24 hours to archive maximum quality. There’s a variety of broths and each bowl has its own unique flavor profile. While you’re there, try the yakitori — which are similar to shish kabobs.

South StrEAT Ghost Kitchen | 36 Newark Street

South StreEAT serves up huge, comforting ramen bowls filled with fresh ingredients. The ramen bowls are gigantic and while the prices may seem high for soup (ranging from about $13 to $17) this is an entire meal (or two) in itself.

Tony Boloney’s | 263 1st Street

Okay, so not technically a ramen place, but we’re pretty sure this is the only place around where you can get ramen pizza. Tony Boloney’s ramen pizza is made with a ramen noodle crust out of actual ramen, Shoyu broth, pickled egg, Japanese mozzarella, and hot sauce.

ViVi Bubble Tea Cafe | 117 Washington Street

Featuring ramen made in a variety of flavors from mild to spicy, all dishes (with the exception of the veggie ramen) are made with a triple broth that includes chicken bone, pork bone, and kombu vegetables. There’s also a choice of Tonkotsu Ramen, which is made in a meatier, pork-based broth, or the ViVi Ramen which is made with a lighter broth — so eat up and snag a bubble tea while you are at it.

Yeung II | 1120 Washington Street

This place has a little something for everybody, from sushi to pad thai to udon. The ramen menu consists of an assortment of fish, meat, and veggie options, including wonton ramen, jumbo shrimp ramen, and roast duck ramen. The beauty of so many cuisines is that you don’t have to choose, so go ahead and order that sushi roll with ramen on the side.

Jersey City

Ahri’s Kitchen | 227 7th Street

At Ahri’s, you can get either the Korean ramen with fresh veggies or the seafood ramen with shrimp, squid, mussels, and baby shrimp — both served in vegetable broth.

Ani Ramen | 218 Newark Avenue

Ani Ramen serves fresh noodle dishes with the broth of your choice and the option to add pork, chicken, or pork belly as well as roasted seaweed, mushroom, or an umami bomb (umami is known as the “fifth taste” in Korean cuisine and includes miso, chili, + spices) to your dish.

Miso Ramen | 189 Newark Avenue

Located on Newark Avenue, Miso Ramen offers an array of ramen dishes with a range of broths, including tonkutsu, miso, salt, and shoyu. Check out the vegetable ramen (it’s vegan, too!) with mushrooms, bamboo, egg, and scallions — or the broth-less ramen with pork or beef. This spot also serves up gluten-free ramen.

Menya Sandaime | 570 Washington Boulevard

With locations in Fort Lee and Jersey City, Menya Sandaime has an extensive ramen list that includes house-made noodle dishes and pan-fried noodles in tonkutsu, shoyu, or rich Sapporo-style miso broth (think a thick, belly-warming broth) and tsukemen, cold ramen noodles that are dipped in a smoky seafood broth.

OZU | 106 Hutton Street

OZU is a BYOB Japanese food restaurant in Jersey City Heights known for its delicious food and great service. There are three types of ramen on the menu here, including cold ramen, Ozu ramen, and miso ramen.

Pinwheel Garden Dumpling + Noodle Bar | 318 Communipaw Avenue

It might be easy to miss this tiny shop, but it’s well worth the visit for the trinity ramen dish — a combination of beef, chicken, and pork broth with jasmine tea egg, garlic pea shoots, and enoki mushrooms.
