Ooink – Ramen above the rest

I know that Seattle has an international district and I know that this ramen place is above a grocery store in Capitol Hill. I’ve come to terms with that, hopefully you can too. Also, take a deep breath and accept that the name sounds like a butchery more than a Ramen stop.

Now that we have that out of the way, prepare yourself for some of the best ramen in the city. Everything about it is cooked to perfection, with my personal preference being the traditional Shio. Many people clamor for the spicy Kotteri Ramen, if heat is your thing. Be careful; I once heard a back and forth with a customer, where the chef warned him that he takes his spice levels very seriously. I’m under the impression everything about the ramen is something he takes seriously.

This is a very small place, so I recommend going during off hours, or just be prepared to wait. Honestly, some of my best days in Seattle are days that I’ve had ramen at Ooink.
