The Plate • Fresh ingredients, carefully prepared: a good meal
Under 25 USD
Sometimes all you really want is a delicious meal in a comfortable setting. No fuss, no hipper-than-thou patrons, just good food. Sakuramen, in the basement of a row house in Adams Morgan, is on hand to soothe your soul with its wide variety of that steaming bowl of love-ramen. In fact, it's all about these toothsome noodles here. Goji ramen is a traditional shoyu ramen, while chosun shows off a Korean influence with Angus bulgogi and kimchi. Gyoza and steamed buns are available for good measure. Sakuramen is naturally the house special and the kitchen changes things up with a vegetable broth made from mushrooms and seaweed. Braised bamboo shoots, portobello caps, and other vegetables bob amid the curly noodles for a perfectly satisfying meal.
