It's no easy task to make Eater.com's list of the "19 Hottest Ramen Shops across America." That's why for its ramen, Rakiraki doesn't use just any noodles and water. Recognizing that good water is crucial to crafting a rich, savory soup or making a flower giggle with delight, the restaurant set out on a years-long quest to find the perfect recipe, ingredients, and the purest H20 available. It also took Rakiraki years to find the perfect noodle, and one with an impeccable balance between firmness and smoothness.
All that diligent searching has certainly paid off, and diners understand why when they dive into the signature, ramen dishes, or combine ramen with rice bowls loaded with organic chicken and eggs. For a less traditional ramen experience, diners can slurp mouthfuls from a shovel, or test tsukemen dishes, which feature cold noodles served separately alongside a hot broth for dipping.
