Japanese noodle house in Chicago?

seventhson | Sep 27, 2011 12:08 PM

I moved to Chicago recently from the West Coast and have not yet found a great udon/ramen place in city. There are tons of Pho restaurants and tons of sushi/thai places that might have an udon dish or a ramen dish on the menu, but I am specifically looking for a place that specializes in udon and ramen. A place that has multiple ramden dishes and multuple udon dishes and even allows you to pick and choose the vegetables/meats that go in. A place that offers shio ramen, shoyu ramen, and miso ramen.

I have been to Sunshine and enjoyed it, but it is not quite what I'm searching for. If memory serves me correctly, they have 1 or 2 ramen dishes.

Please offer up suggestions as this is the perfect time of year to start trying them out in preparation of a weekly noodle fix that I'll need come Dec Jan Feb. I like near Lakeivwe/Wrigley so a restaurant in that area is preferable but not necessary. Hole in the walls preferred.

Thanks
