Zagat recently published an article of The Hottest Restaurants in 15 American Cities and a Capitol Hill ramen spot made the list!
Betsutenjin Ramen opened their doors last month and has rapidly become a ramen hot spot. The cozy Japanese shop serves up hakata-style pork bone ramen and dumplings.
I’m not well versed when it comes to ramen, but here’s what our friends over at Zagat had to say:
Must-order: The menu is incredibly brief here, clocking in at just four items — two types of ramen, gyoza and lobster salad. We say bring a friend and order the whole shebang. If you have to choose just one, go for the original hakata-style pork-filled ramen.
They also included an insider tip:
The longer these noodles sit in the broth, the softer they get. Slurp, slurp, slurp as fast as you can to preserve the integrity of the noodle.
