First up on the list is Rakkii Ramen, a Japanese noodle house mixing both traditional and modern cuisine for the best dishes possible. The chef of this restaurant studied ramen crafting in Japan, so we trust his ramen cuisine fully!
While Rakkii Ramen may not have an extensive menu compared to other restaurants, we think it’s amazing for a restaurant that specializes in ramen. Located on George Street, Rakkii Ramen will certainly not disappoint any daring customer.
49 Bayard St, New Brunswick NJ 08901
Ramen Nagomi, a local favorite restaurant for New Brunswick locals, is all about the presentation of warmth, comfort, and harmony, both in their food and their overall vibe. We love this restaurant and highly encourage anyone who wants to feel at home while enjoying their meal to check it out!
The noodles at this restaurant are freshly made, the chicken used in recipes is organic, and any pork you see on the menu is certified-humane and hormone free. Ramen nagomi not only serves some of the tastiest food in the city, but also some of the best for you and the environment.
43 Easton Ave, New Brunswick NJ 08901
Noodle Gourmet is often packed tight with Rutgers University students waiting to enjoy a more authentic ramen bowl than the ones they pick up from the supermarket. We love this restaurant and the extensive menu that they offer to their customers. Who knew there were so many noodle combinations!?
And if you’re looking for a refresher with your meal, this restaurant offers killer bubble tea. You don’t want to miss this place!
176 Easton Ave, New Brunswick NJ 08901
The first thing you see on Ramen Stop’s website are the words “everybody loves ramen,” and we couldn’t agree more! While this place specializes in ramen bowls, they also offer sushi rolls and bowls, buns, and donbury, so in case somebody in your party isn’t a fan of ramen (gasp!) they have plenty of other options to choose from.
We are also very impressed with the aesthetic of the food here at Ramen stop, so if you’re seeking an aesthetically pleasing meal, make sure to add this restaurant to your list.
363 George St, New Brunswick NJ 08901
We love both the food and the presentation here at TeriTeri. Their menu is huge and just pictures of their food will make your mouth water!
TeriTeri offers some of the best ramen in town, but that’s not all! If you’re interested in straying from the ramen options, TeriTeri has options including udon, yakisoba, specialty bowls, and sushi!
This little place also has some of the best reviews in town, so make sure to check it out soon!
37 Easton Ave, New Brunswick NJ 08901
Ani Ramen is brand new to New Brunswick, but based on its other locations successes, we are very excited to watch this place grow this year!
Ani ramen is centered around the idea that good food is a way to communicate love to people, and what better way to do that than with a big warm bowl of noodles in a city that, well, loves big warm bowls of noodles! Their noodles are even hand rolled, making the love even greater and more special.
We believe that you can’t go wrong with ramen noodles. It’s a meal that you eat when you’ve had a great day to celebrate, a meal that you eat when you had a bad day and need comfort, and a meal you eat when you’re not feeling well. Because of this, we encourage all readers to go out and grab some ramen from one of these places ASAP: after all, it can only make your day better!
