Perched above the Honest Chocolate Café and the secret Gin Bar on Wale Street, Bodega Ramen is a new and exciting noodle joint quickly becoming a firm favorite among locals and visitors alike. The space, previously home to Melting Pot and Oxalis, has undergone a stunning transformation, with moody green walls, antique furnishings, and retro art creating a cozy, warm, and inviting atmosphere.
Delicious Selection of Homemade Ramen Bowls
Bodega Ramen provides an impressive variety of homemade ramen containers filled with flavorful broth. We recommend the braised beef short rib and kimchi ramen, as well as the miso chars pork belly with cucumbers and ajitama egg. In addition to an assortment of delectable small dishes, there is a vegan option with shiitake, marinated tofu, and slow-roasted tomatoes. Take advantage of the menu’s main dish, the charred cabbage with peanuts, Kewpie mayonnaise, and nori, which is already a fan favorite.
Well-Curated Boutique Wine List and Ukhamba Craft Beer
The venue offers a well-curated boutique wine list and Ukhamba craft beer, making it the perfect spot for a casual post-gin dinner or a romantic evening out. The warm, bustling atmosphere and attentive staff make Bodega Ramen a great place to enjoy a fantastic meal in a cozy and welcoming setting.
Indulge in a Slice of Burnt Basque Cheesecake
