A Noodle Revolution

Ramen-san burst onto the scene in 2014 in the heart of River North. At that time, finding an authentic ramen spot in Chicago was like searching for a needle in a haystack. They took it to the next level by partnering with Sun Noodle, a renowned manufacturer, to bring daily shipments of those mouthwatering noodles from the New Jersey noodle factory to the Windy City.

A Dining Experience at Ramen-San Chicago

The main floor of Ramen-san, which seats 75, once belonged to Oyster Bah. It’s been transformed into a simple yet cozy space that feels just right. The hip-hop soundtrack keeps the atmosphere buzzing, a perfect accompaniment to your noodles.

Adapting to the Times

COVID brought changes to the dining landscape. Carryout became a lifeline, and quality had to remain intact. Ramen-san adjusted, investing in packaging to preserve that soul-warming soup. And they weren’t afraid to trim the menu to remove items like french fries that don’t travel well.
