If you are looking for amazing ramen noodles in Tempe, you’ll want to try a place called Umami.
I visited Umami for the first time recently with a buddy from Wisconsin, and we both really enjoyed it.
The experience is similar to ordering at a sushi restaurant, in that you mark off what you want on a piece of paper. Then, a little while later they bring you your appetizers and ramen dishes.
We both ordered the ramen, and customized them to our hearts content.
The interior of Umami is simple, yet clean and refined. This is certainly not a super-fancy restaurant, but for casual ramen that isn’t bland, you will be pleasantly surprised.
Umami is hard to find, so call for directions. It’s located just west of Mill Ave. near an old church. There are plenty of free parking lots nearby. Follow the directions on the Umami web site.
I’ll admit that it was my first time in a long time having authentic ramen. I really loved it, and plan to take the whole family.
