Houston's ramen craze doesn't appear to be dying any time soon. Japanese ramen joints have been popping up all over town, but the best is located in a small shotgun space in Chinatown's Dun Huang Plaza. Tiger Den was so popular upon first opening that the owners had to close and rework their plans to accommodate the huge crowds. Now that the initial madness surrounding the spot has subsided a bit, Tiger Den is a comfortable place to enjoy a low-key (but fast) dinner in one of the more chic spots in Chinatown. Though the yakitori that accompanies the ramen on Tiger Den's menu is fairly one-note, the ramen is rich and complex, and the house-made noodles have an ideal firm chewiness to them. Try the tonkotsu and spicy miso ramens, and sample from the selection of Japanese beer and sake. Just remember: It's bad luck to pour your own sake, so bring a friend.
