Isshin Ramen House
Japanese Restaurant in Chicago

Finally a solid ramen place in the neighborhood. I am so happy I got to try Isshin Ramen House a couple of weeks ago because I loved it. Such a cute little spot, very welcoming and right beside the Bryn Mawr CTA Red Line Station.
Let's talk about the real business here: their ramen. Most of their broth are thick pork broth, which tastes fantastic, very balanced. I got the Miso Ramen which has 3 pieces of pork chashu, boiled egg, bean sprouts, green onion and black fungus (that I never tried before on ramen) and it was beyond delicious! My fiancé got the spicy miso ramen which was fantastic too. Also, got the takoyaki and seaweed to start it off while we waited for the ramen (that doesn't take that long to come out and being served)
Attention was out of the world. The only waitress, who seems to be the owner, is just pure love. She was very attentive, kind and super friendly. Place is quiet, small and welcoming. That much welcoming that we have been back a couple of times after our...

This review is for a visit to this spot several weeks ago, in the middle of phase 1 lock down for covid.
The owners are EXTREMELY friendly and the atmosphere they created looks like it will be amazing once we can fully reopen.
The food however! The food was absolutely delicious! Cooked perfectly, then packaged up individually (broth separate from veggies etc) and when we got home and put it all together it was amazing! I love this little spot and now that live on the other end of the city, I will travel to come get some for sure.
It is one of my Top Five ramen spots at this point!

Their broth is good, actual long cooked bone soup. I think their noodles need about 30 seconds more cooking even though I love chewy noodles. However, the flavor of the meat in the soup is all there, and it’s not covered up by excessive garlic or other seasoning. I’m not used to teriyaki sauce in my croquette, I prefer tonkatsu sauce on it. It was my second visit and I look forward to going again!
