Ramen in the Rain

Posted from Portland, Oregon, United States.

Cold, rainy. Perfect night for ramen in Portland’s Boke Bowl.


Staring off with their seasonal bun, squash, is a delightfully savory and sweet combination of several different cabbages and squashes with punpkin wrapped up in a rice bun with a rice vinegar sauce.


But the main event with all its porky goodness is the draw. House-made al dente noodles fill a large bowl of a thin but umami-rich (beef?) broth with pulled pork. Top it off with some braised pork belly and bok choy, and you have a delicious savory soup for a cool night, even if it isn’t a traditional rich fatty ramen.


Only downside? Closes at 9pm so get in early.
