We’re just a couple guys who are passionate about ramen, which we feel is the ultimate comfort food, inspiring childhood memories of sharing with family and friends.  Our sole focus is to create the best ramen on the planet, without using artificial flavorings of any kind, sourced from pure bone broth coupled with the freshest ingredients available.

We do not favor any particular style or cultural influence when it comes to our ramen dishes.  With an unbridled approach to culinary creativity, we strive to deliver a unique dining experience that highlights a fusion of diverse flavors from across the globe.  From ramen houses in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Seoul, to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, we are pleased to see that others love ramen as much as we do… and so we are especially proud to open our doors in Washington DC, in the heart of a city we love to call home.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve.  Humbly Yours…

~ Jay & Jonathan ~

Noodle lovers can customize their soup bowls at this basement-level spot with a communal table.- Google
"The tonkatsu red was great, as were the spicy pork buns."

Came here for dinner with a date and really enjoyed our food. The server was very attentive and service was incredible. Our food came in time and everything was so tasty. I will come back here for dinner.

Decent ramen, but I don't really like the type of noodles they used. I think it's over rated here. I definitely had better ramen in other places.

What's the fuss about? Zero ambiance in a subterranean space. Crowded. No liquor license. Distracted service. Bland and boring dishes. Is it because it's cheap? For interns only.

Wow. I thought Toki Underground was the best ramen in DC, but I was wrong. Sakuramen takes the cake! Sakuramen is in the basement of one of the row houses on the main strip in Adams Morgan. You walk in and there's one long community table that would be typical in Japan and around 10-12 smaller tables for two. Right away we were seated and the server asked for our order (They obviously are trying to get people in and out due to the popularity of this place, but I never felt rushed at all). My wife and I ordered the bulgogi buns for an appetizer. The bulgogi was as good as any I've had in Korea and it comes on these amazing buns that look like a thick tortilla. One order includes two buns so it's perfect for two! My wife and I ordered two very different ramens but both were amazing. My wife lives spicy and ordered the Spicy Miso. If you can't handle spice like me, stay away because it is legit spicy. I ordered the Tonkotsu Mild. I love meat and love non-spicy foods and this was the perfect meal for me. To top it off at the end, we ordered mochi. The texture is very different from the ones from Trader Joe's but they come on a cool plate with fruit on it and a chocolate cookie stick. You must go here! Best ramen in DC hands down!

Very flavorful, delicious, authentic Ramen at a pretty good price ($11-$13). We had the sakuramen (vegetable) and gojiramen (traditional pork soy sauce), and both were fantastic. Try the ginger tea, too (they make it with fresh grated ginger). The only drawback is how crowded it is, because it's a tiny city location.

Great broth and tasty ramen. Be careful, the spicy scale can get really spicy, but other than that the food was great.
