Comfort food takes on many forms, and a warm bowl of noodles and broth certainly makes the list. This winter, cozy up with the signature ramen from Karai Ramen + Roll.
Karai spikes its tonkotsu, a traditional Japanese broth made from pork, with a sweet and savory spicy sauce. The ramen is then topped with wood-ear mushrooms and spring onion, but you can customize it with your choice of protein (tofu, chicken, pork) and add-ins (pickled radishes, seaweed, soft-boiled egg, kimchi, sweet corn or bean sprouts).
If you're grabbing the dish for lunch, the ramen combo meal offers a great way to sample more of what Karai has to offer. This special comes with an order of ramen and one of three rice plate options, including vegetable fried rice, chicken teriyaki or Japanese braised pork belly.
