Here are the best local ramen shops in Seattle

Jan 17 2020, 4:42 pm

With the ramen boom of the late 2010s, so many ramen chains have been popping up in Seattle. Although we have love for the imported spots, there’s just something different about eating local. Perhaps it’s the lesser crowds or the fact that you can’t get the food anywhere else in the world…

Either way, here are 5 of our favorite local ramen spots in Seattle.

Although not a sit-down ramen spot, this creative food spot is one of our favorites for a fast fix. Brother’s and Co is what we’d call hipster ramen, using ramen noodles to craft their own broths and recipes based on foods that the chefs love. Try their ramen bolognese — it’s strange, but it works.

While we’re not too fond of the logo of the spot — it’s too cute, especially since we’re about to chow down on some pork — we love their Chinese-inspired ramen. The silky pork soup is ever so smooth, and each bowl has the perfect noodle to soup ratio. Try their spicy ayam goreng on the side; it does Malaysia proud.
