Ramen is Genius!

It’s official. Ramen. Is. At. Backbar.

We will be serving Ramen as part of our Genius Hour that is from 4pm – 6pm everyday (except Tuesday of course.) One of the head chefs of Journeyman Restaurant, Tse Wei Lim, has been working on this ramen recipe for many many months. Although he’s constantly in the pursuit of perfection, he has finally deemed it good enough. And let me tell you this far exceeds my definition of “good enough.”  I personally think it is the best ramen in Boston. The broth is made from pork and duck stocks, with miso and soy sauce. The noodles are made fresh daily and topped with shredded pork, runny duck eggs, scallions, and bamboo shoots. Then you can personalize by adding on kimchee, pickled ginger, garlic, or just some bacon!

Since the noodles are made fresh each day, we only will have 15 orders each day. So please make sure you get here early and grab your $12 bowl of ramen from 4pm to 6pm!
