Just in time for January’s chilly temperatures, north Fort Worth has a new spot for ramen. No, not the instant noodles sold in cellophane packages, but the piping-hot authentic Japanese soup that just a couple years ago was hard to come by locally.
Saikou Sushi & Ramen opened in December in the Presidio Towne Crossing shopping center serving not only ramen (eight varieties) but sushi, sashimi and tasty starters like caramelized Brussels sprouts, charred shishito peppers and beef tataki. But the ramen is the standout here.
From the full-bodied pork broth tonkotsu ramen to the vegetable ramen with kale noodles and black garlic oil, the steamy soups are sure to keep patrons warm this winter. The restaurant is a sister concept to Noodles at Boba Tea House and is open daily for lunch and dinner.
