Enjoy A Bowl of Ramen In Houston
There's nothing like a warm bowl of rich broth, springy ramen noodles, and a perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg. Is the ramen craze that's sweeping Houston another passing food trend? Let's hope not, since the acclaimed Hawaii-based mini-chain AGU Ramen is a mere ten-minute walk from Alexan Enclave.
Currently sitting at the number one spot on Eater.com's "Hottest Restaurants in Houston Right Now, March 2017" list, this AGU Ramen location opened in December 2016 to satisfy West Houston's cravings for these mouth-watering bowls of Japanese comfort food. Never eaten a bowl of authentic Japanese Ramen before? Think of it like Japan's version of BBQ - regionally-inspired broths that are cooked slow, low, and with lots of love.
The Tonkotsu ramen is the star of the menu and obvious fan favorite, consisting of a rich and heavy pork broth that cooks down over 24 hours. More of a poultry type? Try the nine-hour Jidori chicken broth with chicken char siu. Split a variety of Japanese tapas beforehand, ranging from moist and flavorful Karaage (Japanese-style fried chicken) to dishes like crispy fried pig's ears for the more adventurous types.
With a sleek and modern interior design, abundant bar seating, and communal tables, AGU Ramen is the type of bustling new neighborhood hot spot that you'll love having so close by. Open daily from 11am to 10pm, pop in at any time for a taste of Japan.
