Ramen is very much a soup, and Ichiza Kitchen has a vegan version that gloriously competes with its meaty ramen counterparts. The Ichiza Noodle Soup, with rice noodles, “chicken,” yu choy, cilantro, green onions, house chili sauce, and incredible broth made with 13 medicine herbs and spices is just as good as its description sounds.
