I'm wondering what's yummy in terms of ramen up in Boston, Cambridge, and the nearby surrounding areas. I'm very familiar with the New York ramen scene (Santouka, Ippudo, Momofuku Noodle Bar, Ramen Misoya, Minca, Rai Rai Ken, Zutto, Totto, Jin, Jinya, Donburiya, Ramen Setagaya).
To give you an idea of my taste buds when it comes to ramen, while I really like Ippudo, I don't think it's the absolute best. I'm now more ramen educated and understand that there are different broths (salt, soy sauce, pork, chicken, seafood, miso, etc) and each is evaluated on its on merits, as compared to evaluating a bowl of ramen solely based on whether or not its as good as Ippudo.
From the list above, places I liked the most to are Santouka (in Edgewater, NJ), Ippudo, Momofuku Noodle Bar, Zutto (seafood ramen!), Ramen Misoya (gf loves miso ramen), Jin, Minca and Totto.
The only real ramen place I'm familiar with up in Boston is Yume Wo Katare. What's good besides that place?
