BART Station:Downtown Berkeley
Walk Time:3 minutes
Global ramen brand Ippudo landed in downtown Berkeley a few months ago and the buzz hasn’t died down yet. If you’re curious about what ramen tastes like in Japan, try Ippudo’s version of house-made Hakata noodles and Shiromaru Classic dashi broth. With 60 locations across the globe, and a new restaurant opening up in San Francisco soon, Ippudo sets itself apart by allowing diners to select the chewiness of their noodles and even gives hungry diners the option to order another batch of noodles for any remaining broth.
