Ramen Bushi-Do Restaurant Review

: Ignore the strip mall exterior, and instead admire the dark, sleek and sophisticated interior of this Japanese noodle shop, opened by the owners of the Chinese dumpling spot Dough Zone. The food here --- thankfully --- seems to be crafted by skilled cooks with the same eye for beauty as seen in the décor. From thick, chilled spinach noodles in the salad-like mazemen, to the thin, stick-straight bundles nestled under pork pieces in the classic tonkotsu, this is a noodle-lover's paradise. As drawbacks, the beer and wine selections haven’t been given much thought; expect straightforward, affordable local wines and Japanese beers. Dessert doesn't earn much attention either, although the crème brûlée is worth ordering.
