The space is tiny and during peak hours there's always a line, but Ramen Tatsu-Ya has accomplished something few eateries that far north on 183 have: Seduced the hipster foodies. Why do they make the drive? Why do they stand in line -- sometimes for an hour? Ramen Tatsu-Ya's "Original," a creamy pork noodle soup with pork belly, is perhaps the main reason. A complex broth forged by soaking pork bones up to 60 hours is elevated by a tasty egg, wood ear mushrooms and scallions. The finished product entices crowds from near and far.
Hands down the best ramen place in
Austin. They do it right here, cooking the broth overnight, playing attention to the quality of the product, and service is great. My favorites are the tonkatsu and the dipping ramen!
