The inspiration for Ramen Ishida was wanting to create healthy ramen chock full of vegetables, and Chef/Owner Yohei Ishida (formerly of Ippudo) fulfills this promise. His unique creations are vegetarian friendly, and appeal to anyone looking for ramen that is both delicious and good for you. Red Vegetable Ramen’s soup is made from vegetables such as carrots, beets and tomatoes, and it features noodles made with turmeric. Green Vegetable Ramen’s soup is made with watercress, spinach and cabbage, and its noodles are spinach-based (it can also be made non-vegan). Both are potage-like, a consistency that goes well with the chewy, curly noodles. For those who want to add a little kick to their ramen, ask for curry paste on the side, which is currently offered free of charge. Those craving standard ramen can enjoy New Tokyo Style Shoyu Ramen, topped with both chashu pork, chicken breast, half boiled egg, and shiso leaves. Its soup is composed of chicken, truffles and porcini, and is so light and clean that you’ll want to drink it to the last drop. Thin, straight noodles are cooked just right to have enough bite to savor with the exquisite soup. The menu is rounded out by cold noodle salads, as well as appetizers such as pork buns, edamame and potato salad.
New Tokyo Style Shoyu Ramen combines New York and Tokyo styles, hence the name.
Red Vegetable Ramen (above) is a healthy, delicious dish good for your skin and metabolism. Add a spoonful of curry paste (below) and make it curry ramen.
With only 9 seats, Ramen Ishida is able to custom make each bowl for its customers.
