When the weather is chilly, sometimes the best way to warm yourself is from within with a big bowl of ramen. Alpharetta has plenty of stellar slurp-worthy options across the city that you won’t want to miss. So, grab your chopsticks, and get to Alpharetta to try these 4 flavor-packed options and let us know which is your favorite:
JINYA RAMEN BAR
401 South Broad Street
Irashai! Get ready to slurp—yes, SLURP—a big bowl of soup at Jinya Ramen Bar. We know your parents probably told you that slurping at the table is rude, but in Japanese culture, it’s considered a compliment to the chef, and you’ll want to send compliments to the chef after trying the Flying Vegan Harvest ramen. This vegan-approved bowl includes vegan miso broth, tofu, bean sprouts, broccolini, green onion, crispy garlic and more! If you’re branching out into ramen for the first time, keep it traditional with the Jinya Chicken Ramen, made with chicken broth, chicken chashu, spinach, green onion, fried onion, and thin noodles.
6360 North Point Parkway
At Food Terminal, you’ll be seriously satisfied with their noodle soups. Try the Szechuan Bone Marrow Noodle Soup to enjoy Food Terminal’s signature thin noodles, five spice pork belly, roasted bone marrow, seaweed, spring onion, Szechuan chili, and a soft-boiled egg. You’ll want more of the Wonton Mee Noodle Soup including chicken and shrimp broth, shrimp and pork wontons, homemade signature thin noodles, bok choy, spring onions and fried shallots. Make the most of your meal at Food Terminal with some of their amazing appetizers, too!
Ramen Bar by Hajime
4180 Old Milton Parkway #1-H
Enjoy an authentic Japanese feel and a tasty menu at Ramen Bar by Hajime. For a bowl of ramen that you can’t beat, try the Nin Niku Tori Ramen, consisting of chicken broth, chicken, ground garlic, bean sprouts, onions, a seasoned egg, and more! Looking to literally bring some spice to your life? The Ultra Spicy Ramen includes original tonkotsu broth with house special spicy paste, shilli oil, slices of roasted pork, seaweed, white onion and more.
7140 Avalon Boulevard
Okay, okay – we know this isn’t traditional Japanese ramen, but we couldn’t leave it out because it’s so good! Head to District III at Avalon to try their pho, a Vietnamese soup that is kind of like a distant relative to ramen, available in a variety of styles. Try the Pho Chicken for shredded chicken in chicken broth served with basil, bean sprouts, jalapeno, and lime on the side or opt for the Pho Lobster for a bowl brimming with a whole lobster in broth.
