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 to paitan, toppings like soft boiled eggs to pork belly to chicken, brussels sprouts to corn to cutlets, 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 restaurants in Austin bear exemplary brothy slurps of Ramen Tatsu-ya, chicken-based options at Kome, and more. There are vegetarian and vegan ramens available at various restaurants. Plus, in these takeout times, 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 restaurants themselves.
