Baltimore has good ramen!
Just stopped by the old Joss Cafe (400 block N. Charles St.) and had a shoyu ramen and a cup of bubble tea. Ramen was legit -- luscious, rich broth and properly al dente alkaline ramen noodles. Definitely the best ramen I've had in the surrounding 60 miles (including D.C.) and hit the spot nicely.
It's only open 11 AM - 7 PM right now, and is in the works of getting a proper menu and redoing the insides, but it's worth going. They also have miso and I think corn butter ramen, also Taiwanese beef noodle soup (haven't tried it, don't know how it is). Only caveat is that portion sizes are somewhat small for the price -- $10 for a small bowl, $8 for karaage (fried chicken) or other sides.
Thanks to HowChow (liked a link to this on Facebook, but can't find it anymore!! Otherwise I would have linked it) for the tip.
