Jimbo Restaurant

Lynn Nakagawa writes: Another great ramen place is Jimbo's. Their noodles are made by hand at the restaurant every day and have an amazing texture, a little elastic and chewy. I normally take pictures of my meals, but the only pic I can find is of their cold noodle salad, which is wonderful on a hot day. Or any day.

Taita Restaurant

Haley Dale shares this image and writes: "So much to love - A tiny chef owned seafood restaurant with a Peruvian and Nikkei spin - delicious! Omaha has a brilliant culinary culture. The smart traveler no longer flies over - they stop for dinner!"

Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum (新横浜ラーメン博物館)

Roy Arellano writes: "I've been living in Japan for the past three years and have been very fortunate to taste the best. I'm hesitant to believe that the ramen state-side can compete, but I hope it does cause I will miss Japanese Ramen. Best Ramen I've had? I have to say the ramen at Nidai-me Genkotsu-ya, which is located at the Ramen Museum in Yokohama Japan."

Santa Ramen

Vanessa Hua writes: "One night the server came down the line and said 'only ten bowls left' -- we were the last lucky ones. The people behind us glumly said, 'I guess we can go to Fresh Choice' -- which seems like no choice at all! I like it too because it's in a suburban strip mall. Not all great ethnic food are in cities."

Rose's Meat Market and Sweet Shop

Ralph Litzinger sent this photo and writes: "It's a kind of high end butcher here in Durham; all their meats are 'local' and they do all the butchering on site. They this use their own freshly slaughtered pork back and they only make the ramen on Wednesdays until it runs out. I like it in large part because it is served up in an unlikely place."

Sakuramen

Shefali Kulkarni writes: "This popular ramen spot in Washington, D.C. has some amazingly spicy ramen. I used to go there when I was warding off a cold and the spicy broth would always clear me up. Randomly, they also made amazing mushroom dumplings."
