There is a place in Portland where American barbeque has intertwined with traditional Japanese ramen.

Soup and noodle lovers, meet Bar King PDX.

We’re suckers for a grand and warming bowl of ramen here at Dished. Salt-based, fat-based, vegetable-based, give us anything in a hot bowl with a myriad of add-ons and a ball of perfectly blanched noodles.

This Portland shop prides itself on its interworking ecosystems in which all of their counters (restaurant, bar, and bakery) work in sync with one another to conjure up some of the most thoughtful and well put together dishes in all of Oregon.

“Bar King believes in slow, deliberate, and thoughtful cooking. The restaurant, bar, and bakery collaborate daily on shared ingredients and a no-waste philosophy,” reads their info page.

What to order

The Winter Menu at Bar King is pretty astounding. From Chick Pea with vegan miso broth and mushrooms with pumpkin to their meticulously crafted and stunning Pork Shoyu ramen, there is never going to be enough time in the world to enjoy all that they have to offer.

However, if you’re looking for the top of the flavor mountain, and the perfect example of why we think Bar King is among the pinnacle of ramen in the country, you have to try their Smoked Short Rib Noodle Soup.

The barley noodles, the spicy greens, and the egg are all flawless additions to the bowl, and it’s all tied together by the horseradish. Topped with, of course, a large smoked short rib.
