Best Comfort Food: Ramen Tatsu-Ya

You know a dish is soul-satisfying when locals seek out its piping hot comfort despite the Houston weather. Case in point: the pulled noodle soup from this cult-favorite ramen shop. With three years under its belt, you’ll still find a line winding passed The Notorious C.A.T. lucky cat on the way in. Say hey to the cat, then ease into rich and creamy tonkotsu and spicy miso ramen bowls that you’ll slurp to the very last drop; or go dunking with the thick, toothsome tsukemen noodles served with a bold dipping broth. Munchie katsu sliders, triple-fried chicken karaage, and dreamy matcha pudding only add to the comfort factor, as does the lineup of local crafts and Japanese sake.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
