Umami Ramen & Dumpling Bar

   Located in a renovated 1880's historic house on Willy St. From the outside Umami Ramen & Dumpling Bar doesn't look like much but when you step into the bar area your transformed to a syfy ramen world.

    I'm always up for ordering any tartares when they are on the menu, so I knew I had to get the poke appetizer. It was fresh, light but the chips stole the show. I could of snacked on them the whole service. They were hot right out of the fryer and well seasoned. You get a large amount of pork belly with the pork buns for the cost. With my ramen I got smoked tofu added for an extra cost cause I love anything that has been smoked. But sadly the tofu had no flavor at all. You also have to pay for chili sauce too. I put that stuff on everything and don't know of any other place that makes you pay for it.

    You can also can get all their buns and a special bun on Saturday at the Farmer's Market on the Capital Square. They're going to start doing brunch soon. Japanese styles biscuits and gravy might just get me to come back.
