Nationally acclaimed Ramen Tatsu-ya opened in Houston on February 20 to an hours-long line of anxious, frenzied ramen fanatics. The Austin-based chain was recognized in 2013 by Bon Appétit as one of the best restaurants in America. The menu is straightforward: Pick a ramen style, choose from a half dozen toppings to add, drop a bomb or two and a bowl is born. The list of creatively named small bites, sides and sweets includes tasty treats such as the sweet and sour yodas and hush piggies. The dipping-broth ramen called tsukemen is incredibly flavorful, with a condensed pork bone broth that is rich, salty and satisfying. There’s a 14-car parking lot that is totally insufficient for the restaurant’s popularity. Street parking is available, but expect a short wait in line for lunch and dinner.
