Finally a ramen place that isn't trying to be hipster and offer crazy weird dumb combinations that were gross. FINALLY. I fell in love with this ramen place the moment I had some with that tender pork belly fat and boy is it tender! The noodles were perfectly cooked and the meat to noodle ratio is on point. What an incredible value if you get the extra noodles too as that filled me up! That broth is amazing and flavorful and it will make you want to drink the whole damn bowl.
Looking for a great ramen spot to get your fix without any of the weird hipster flavors? Check this place out for an authentic tonkotsu ramen dish!
Ramen Inochi 2.0. My husband and I were fans of Ramen Inochi which sat off Baxter. A tiny hole in the wall place that didn't have anywhere for waiting customers but amazing ramen. I was confused to see Ramen Inochi missing on my Maps app and did a quick google search to see the closing, and then the opening of ramen House by one of RI co-owners. I was thrilled.
We came about a week ago around 730 PM. Seated at 8:25 Pm. Gyoza, pork steam puns, and tonkotsu ramen were all phenomenal. Just as good, if not better than RI. Our friend had the shoyu ramen. I'd love the see the menu expanded just a tad to offer a few wines.
The location is a bit challenging if you don't know this area. Lucky for me, I love Baxter Theatre so I know how to wiggle my way through the parking lot from Bardstown. Ramen House faces Baxter, but if you park on the Bardstown side, just walk through Mid-City Mall.
The ramen was the best ramen that I've had in Louisville. It was a rainy night and we went during what we thought was a busy time and luckily, we got a spot for 2. There were so much flavor in the broth. Definitely worth poking your head in for : )
Some friends (8 of us!) and I met here for dinner on a weeknight around 6. We pulled several tables together and ordered some apps - spicy garlic edamame and gyoza, both of which were liked by all. The edamame was maybe a little norm for it's given title but still tasty, and the gyoza had an especially robust flavor compared to what I've had at other places. I ordered the Spicy Miso Tonkotsu, which came out piping hot and smelling fantastic. We all dug in and between slurps everyone was gushing about how tasty it was... except for one dish, the Bulgogi bowl, which wasn't very hot, nor was it spicy or very flavorful. Oh well, I'll still try it again some time to see if it was a one-off miss.
The prices are all spot-on, or maybe what most would call affordable. The decor is cool with plenty of funko pops, toys, and anime-influenced art adorning the walls and shelves.
When we were finishing around 7:30 there was a line out the door and more waiting in the Mid-City Mall colonnade, so get there early.
This is my favorite place in Louisville to get ramen, believe it!
The have a small but bountiful menu of ramen variations, several ways to customize your ramen, and non-ramen options if soup isn't your thing but your friend who keeps talking about being Hokage some day they'd have something for you to eat as well.
They also have decorated with a well-curated anime theme that is heavy on Naruto Uzumaki which I appreciate and support this. I am sure some of you don't like Naruto or haven't heard of it but that's not my problem. It's a failure in character that you should work on.
I normally order the spicy miso, add some vegetables to it and another egg. The wait staff is quick with refills of your drink if spicy is something that frightens you. They have an eating contest that I am going to train for.
When Grand Master Yoda asked Luke Skywalker how he got big eating "food of this kind" it wasn't the lunch Aunt Beru packed him but ramen from Ramen House. Believe it.
