The Best Ramen in Philadelphia

The OpenTable Team

The 1876 Centennial Exposition first introduced Japanese fare to the City of Brotherly Love, and since that time, determining the best ramen in Philadelphia has become difficult due to the multitude of options. Kitchens all over the city have started serving this simmering soup-noodle dish, from Philly's Chinatown down to South Street. But where do the most enthused foodies dine out? Welcome to our Tastemaker List. By gathering data from OpenTable’s most experienced diners, we’ve identified the best restaurants across the globe. While most may think of Philly cheesesteaks, hoagies and pretzels, the best ramen in Philadelphia has expanded the city’s culinary image to new (tasty) horizons. Check out the following restaurants for the best ramen in Philadelphia, then book a table before they fill up!
