Updated: 6/19/2023 | Best Ramen Restaurants in Seattle
Ramen is a Japanese noodle soup dish that’s widely popular in Japan and throughout the world.
There are thousands of variations with most ramen bowls consisting of a broth base (often pork and soy based), long thin noodles made from wheat, and an assortment of toppings that you can easily get creative with.
In Seattle, we are lucky to have lots of ramen options that you’ll want to revisit over and over again. Below is a list of our favorite ramen spots to try in Seattle.
Best Ramen Restaurants in Seattle
Betsutenjin serves southern-style ramen in a setting that will take you back to Japan. They offer a very simple menu with two types of ramen: Hakata and Prawn (topped with dry shrimp).
We highly recommend their combos that include a soft-boiled egg and a side dish of gyoza or lobster salad. Their broth is pork based and is not made with milk.
The best part is their accouterments (garlic paste, chili powder, chili oil, and garlic chips) and late-night hours. They’re open until 2 AM, which is a rare thing to experience in Seattle.
The space is small, so make sure your entire party is present in order to get seated ASAP.
Teinei makes their noodles in-house and offers a delicious Shyoyu Tonkatsu Ramen with a broth so clean you’ll leave feeling satisfied and non-bloated.
Watch our Instagram Reel to see all the delicious food we ate at Teinei. We highly recommend their Eel Don rice bowl too.
Visit Teinei and use code SCHIMIGGY to get $2 off any of their ramen or rice bowls. You can also show them this post.
#3 Menya Musashi
Menya Musashi is located in Capital Hill and offers hearty ramen options and a silky pork belly. For an additional $5, you can turn your main noodle dishes into a combo with a non-alcoholic drink and a side dish of chicken karaage (fried chicken), rice and curry don, or takoyaki (grilled octopus balls).
Their broth is super thick, so come hungry!
Kizuki (formerly Kukai) has multiple locations throughout Seattle. They are based in Japan and have expanded to Seattle and Hawaii.
Their ramen options are plentiful, but our favorites are garlic tonkotsu and spicy ramen. Looking for a low-cal option? Ask for less sodium and zero-calorie yam noodles. Want something more flavorful? Add a slice of their pork chashu.
Don’t forget to order the chicken karaage at Kizuki. It’s delicious and one of the best you’ll find in Seattle.
Danbo offer Fukuoka style tonkotsu ramen. Try their classic tonkatsu and negi-goma (sesame oil and seed) ramen noodle soups.
Aside from Japan, Danbo also has locations in Vancouver BC, and New York City.
Arashi offers some of the ramen that tastes most like the ones you’ll find in Japan. They have plenty of options and our favorites are the Arashi and Black Garlic ramen noodle soups.
#7 Bar Dojo
Bar Dojo offers Asian fusion cuisine and their pork belly ramen is super rich and tasty. Chef Luis Brambila also culminates his love for Asian and Mexican cuisine to offer a birria (lamb meat) ramen that you have to try.
Watch our Bar Dojo Instagram Reel to see what we ate during our visit.
#8 Asean Streat
Asean Streat is a huge food court located at Westlake Center. They serve dishes from various South East Asian countries such as Thailand, Burmese, Vietnamese, Indonesia, and much more.
Here, you’ll also find some ramen variations served at their food stands such as the Mee Goreng Kee Mao, a stir-fried ramen noodle dish.
While their ramen is non-traditional, it’s still a very delicious experience.
