Are you craving a hot, steaming bowl of comfort food? Then you’re in luck because Seattle has no shortage of amazing ramen spots to get your fix. From traditional classics to the tastiest vegetarian and vegan options, here are the best places to grab ramen in Seattle.


This small spot specializes in Hakata-style tonkotsu ramen. That means an incredibly rich pork broth, served with thin noodles and some chashu for good measure. Of course, if you ever get sick of that (you won’t), you could try their special offerings instead, like miso prawn ramen.

Hours: Monday-Sunday, 5:30 PM – 2:00 AM
Where: 954 E Union Street #102

Menya Musashi

This International Japan-based chain is known for its tsukemen-style ramen. So if you’re a noodle lover, Menya is a great option. Plus they have both ramen kits and ready-to-eat ramen. And we love options.

Hours: Monday-Sunday, 11:30 AM – 9:30 PM
Where: 1510 Belmont Ave


A full-service izakaya that serves up a variety of ramen, ranging from spicy miso to vegan options. Make sure you try the Fisherman Ramen, which includes clams, octopus, sockeye salmon, and scallops. And their new Lemongrass Pork Shoyu ramen is also worth a try.

Hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 11:30 AM – 2 PM and 4:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Where: 1911 N 45th St


This delicious spot specializes in tonkotsu ramen, so the pork bone broth is the star of the show. We personally love the classic shoyu ramen, but those seeking heat can get the spicy ramen instead and choose a spice level of 1 to 4. Don’t say we didn’t warn you about just how hot things can get, though.

Hours: Hours vary by location
Where: 1416 Harvard Avenue and 3630 Stone Way North

A straightforward outpost in Capitol Hill. Not only is the classic miso ramen an absolute treat, the extra scallions, sesame oil and sesame seeds in the negi-goma is something else too. Grab some of the chashu pork donburi on the side too, you won’t regret it.
