Best Ramen by Las Vegas Suburb and District [2022]

Ramen Vegas

Las Vegas you are lucky, there are ramen shops everywhere! This is why I have created this list. This list is made up of the top ranked and reviewed ramen shops broken down into districts and suburbs of Las Vegas. Though the best place to find the traditional noodle dish will be in Chinatown, sometimes we need other options! I leave you with no excuse not to get this noodle soup for lunch. UGH, I love ramen so much.

What’s So Great About Ramen?

ramen noodles

I have been thinking about what is so special about ramen and I have come to my conclusion. Ramen is a delicious hug in a bowl. It is a Japanese-style noodle dish that comes in a plethora of variations.

What is this noodle dish?

FUN FACT ALERT: Ramen comes originally from China but has become one of Japan’s most popular dishes. But getting back to it, the basis of a ramen dish includes a rich flavorful stock based broth that has been slow cooking for hours and wheat noodles that will leave you with a happy and full belly. Traditionally, you can expect thinly sliced pieces of meat and slivered vegetables on top of a mound of noodles but in most cases you can pick and choose your ramen experience. Oh and how could I forget?? If it doesn’t already come with one, add a soft boiled egg. Game Changer.

It is so good. Eat the noods, get more noods, drink the broth, and have a happy day. Simple.

Ramen Sora

Chef Tomio was born in Sapporo, Japan and wants you to experience ramen the way he experienced ramen growing up. And based on the line out the door of his shop, I’d say he’s doing pretty well!
