This pan-Asian vegan hot spot whips up vegan ramen that gloriously competes with its meat ramen counterparts. The Ichiza Noodle Soup, with rice noodles, “chicken,” yu choy, cilantro, green onions, house chilli sauce and incredible broth made with 13 medicine herbs and spices is just as good as the description sounds.

Address: 1628 SW Jefferson Street, Portland
