JINYA Ramen Bar – Houston, TX

Very new and trendy ramen bar in Houston’s dynamic Mid-Town. Could be the best in Houston.

Very well designed ambiance, good selection of items on menu.

They have chief’s monthly special that will definitely worth coming back for.

I realized it’s a chains with locations across the U.S. Highly recommend you to check them out if they are in your area.

Noodle: 9
Broth: 10
Meat: 8
Abiance: 9
Overall: 9.5
What I ate: Jinya #1 Tonkotsu ramen & Chief Special Spicy Miso.

Price: $$

Other thoughts:
Spicy Miso is really spicy. I can take spicy food well and still feel it’s a bit much. So be careful.
Their curry rice is top notch. Denifitely Japanese style curry. And only cost $4.5 more to add curry rice and salad to your combo.
