We're only three months into 2012 and already it appears that this may very well be the year of the Ramen. Yes Ramen, that ridiculously cheap dry noodle you ate almost religiously while you were in college - most memorably (or not so memorably) during the wee hours of the night after long hours filled with studying or drinking or whatever.
Guchi Midnight Ramen took the city by storm a few weeks back, and people have been in all sorts of a tizzy at the inability to land a seat at the super small pop-ups (which only house about 30 - 60 seats a night). Luckily, another well-known Boston chef is also trying their hand at the uber-nostalgic late night Ramen, which we actually had a chance to try out last week.
Ken Oringer recently renovated his flagship spots - both Clio and Uni - as part of their ten year anniversary. Along with a new look and new menus to match, Oringer also started offering a late night Ramen menu at Uni on the weekends. Thursday through Saturday stop by anytime after 11pm to get your quick fix of asian noodles for just $10 a bowl! They're also serving up small snacks like Shishito peppers and pork buns. So head over to the Eliot Hotel where you're reasonably priced Ramen awaits.
