There is something deeply satisfying about ramen: the combination of broth, noodles, meats, and vegetables, all uniting to make a full, hearty. While it's is best enjoyed on a chilly day, it still works equally as well in the heat, making it important to Austin. From porky tonkotsu to shoyu, toppings like soft boiled eggs to pork belly to chicken, brussels sprouts to corn, there are so many ways to personalize the noodle soup.

While Austin's ramen selection isn't as big as New York or Los Angeles, the city still has really strong contenders. The best ramen spots include the exemplary brothy slurps of Ramen Tatsu-ya, chicken-based options at Kome, and more. There are even vegetarian and vegan ramens available at various restaurants.

For good to-go ramen, many restaurants have been dissembling the noodle dishes, with separate packaging for noodles, proteins/vegetables/seasonings, and broths, allowing people to prepare their ramen bowls at home for optimum quality.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurant themselves.

For more general takeout options, scope out Eater Austin’s takeout and delivery package and the running guide, as well as the ongoing restaurants with pop-up markets list.

A number of Austin restaurants have resumed dine-in service. That level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the City of Austin website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
