I was shocked at how different Ramen in Japan is compared to what passes for it elsewhere. I figured that noodles and broth would be pretty easy to emulate. So, so wrong. Now that I've got the taste for the good stuff, the craving won't let go of me. So I implore you fellow Boston Area Hounds, please point me in the direction of your best Ramen spots. I searched the board and found nothing.
I'm looking for somewhere with, ideally, a number of types (soy, miso, pork, sesame) with that thick style Japanese broth. Somewhere with a decent Shochu selection would be a big plus.
Recently, a place called Ittoku opened up in Allston. Has anyone tried it?
