The key to Ramen-Ya’s success is hands down the love with which its dishes are crafted — and that goes for all seven of its locations. The ramen broth, for example, is homemade and cooked for at least 10 hours with pork bone, chicken and vegetables.

Tantalize your taste buds with that famous broth in one of the eatery’s most popular dishes. A hearty meal awaits in Ramen-Ya’s miso-based Big Bowl Ramen ($12.25), which includes chicken katsu, homemade char siu and a ton of veggies.

“It’s a huge bowl that can be very challenging to finish,” adds the eatery’s Dorothy Lee.

The Seafood Crispy Noodle ($11.75), meanwhile, comes with a heaping assortment of seafood and veggies — all atop a bed of crispy noodles for a burst of texture in each bite.

Noodles are Ramen-Ya’s bread and butter, but local faves like mochiko chicken, Japanese-style beef curry, chicken katsu and more grace the menu, as well.

Everything on the docket is fantastically filling and flavorful, so to get the most of it all, opt for a Combo Set ($12.25) that comes with ramen, gyoza and choice of mini fried rice, chicken katsu, beef curry and more. There are many options and combinations, so stop in to your nearest Ramen-Ya to create your own meal.

Those planning a larger get-together, or want something to feed the whole family, can choose from one of Ramen-Ya’s party pans, too.

“In these pandemic times, let Ramen-Ya be your ‘second kitchen,’” adds Lee. “Simply call in your order for pickup, or relax in our dining room.”
