Mi & Yu Noodle Bar: a unique Ramen joint in Baltimore

Kurtis | Jan 21, 201601:56 PM

I had a good tasting bowl of ramen here recently. As this is a DIY (choose a protein, noodle, and broth among several choices in each category), I had fried chicken with ramen noodle in kimchi broth. The broth was modestly strong in kimchi flavor with medium fermented kimchi pieces. Ramen was bit overcooked for me but still had some toothy bite left. Chicken crust has lost most of integrity in the broth (unlike say well-executed tempura in udon) though decent taste. While there may be a few things to nit pick on, the combination of these produced a rustic and hearty steaming bowl that worked quite well and had good flavors.

This isn't your more traditional ramen place or an Americanized ones that puts everything under the sink in a bowl. It isn't a designer ramen joint either. Their menu has an angle that is concise and focused, with some option to add additional protein and toppings; this is a welcome addition to Baltimore, and fogged up front windows with room full of slurping diners on a cold evening certainly speaks for itself.
