It’s official: We’re well into the rainy season and, more importantly, ramen weather. Now that the temperature feels a little cooler, it’s the perfect time to curl up with a nice, steaming bowl of soup.
If you need extra comfort on rainy days, there are restaurants that make sure you get your ramen fix in two ways.

Wabi-Sabi Noodle House
If you’re looking for vegetarian options, Wabi-Sabi Noodle House has you covered. Their take on standard ramen bowls are made with a vegetable base and eggless wheat noodles.
Another vegetarian option out there is Ippudo Ramen. Their vegetarian mushroom ramen is made with a light broth, three kinds of mushroom, braised silken tofu and miso paste.
Looking for a little extra meat on your plate? There’s always Hanamaruken’s Signature Happiness Ramen: A shoyu tonkotsu ramen topped with a slow-braised soft bone pork rib.
Aside from traditional ramen bowls, Oyasumi Ramen also has options made with tomato and truffle—they even have a variation inspired by La Paz Batchoy!
…Or put together your own ramen
Miss your favorite ramen haunt at The Grid? No worries, Tsukemen has ramen kits for their gyokai, tonkotsu and tantanmen—all sealed and made fresh daily.
If you feel like sharing your ramen, there’s Ramen Nagi. Their ramen kits have servings good for two, and come in four flavors: Butao King, Black King, Red King and Green King.
Another ramen kit made for two is Menya Kokoro’s. Their kits come in two flavors, Tokyo Mazesoba and Black Garlic Ramen, with each serving packaged separately.
Miss the Japanese restaurant experience? Take home one of Osaka Ohsho’s ramen kits. These come with their handmade noodles, pork bone broth, minced pork and leeks.
