It seems like the weather started cooling off as soon as the clock struck “September”. Warm up with some ramen at one of these spectacular spots near West Loop.
Ramen Takeya tops the list for its ambiance and great menu selection. The pork belly buns, poke bowl appetizer, and classic Tokyo shoyu are go-to favorites, but with the vegan seitan ramen option, there’s something everyone can enjoy. The trendy-casual decor and narrow, deep layout makes Ramen Takeya feel like a spot in Tokyo only locals would know about. Ramen Takeya is on Fulton Market in the heart of West Loop.

High Five Ramen
If a ramen restaurant was a speakeasy, it’d be High Five Ramen. This hidden gem is located under Green Street Smoked Meats in the heart of West Loop and is a Hogsalt concept, the same restaurant group that manages Au Cheval and Bavettes. Seating is extremely limited to make sure to arrive early!
Oiistar Wicker Park is just a rocks throw from West Loop and combines traditional ramen with French and Italian influences to get the best of multiple cuisines. The pork-based broth is made daily and stewed for 18 hours and combined with fresh ingredients. Unique appetizers, like a kimchi French onion soup, give Oiistar its unique flare. Based on the minimalist aesthetic, you’d never guess the complex array of dishes on Oiistar’s menu. if you’re looking for traditional ramen with a twist of something a little different, check out Oiistar Wicker Park.
Watch the lively West Loop scene on Green Street from the outdoor patio seating at Ramen San. The hip decor, 90’s music, and great beer selection make Ramen San the perfect spot for a laid back Sunday afternoon.
