West Houston-based ramen fans won't have to venture inside The Loop to get their soup fix now that Ramen Jin is open in the Westchase area. Located inside a bustling strip center, the counter-service spot opened in December 2013, turning out piping-hot bowls of ramen, mini rice bowls and cold noodle dishes.
Inside, the space has been transformed by sleek wooden accents. Branches hang from the ceiling and pallets adorn the walls, setting the backdrop for wooden banquettes and lacquered wood tables. On the menu, customers will find dishes highlighting the restaurant's scratch-made broth and noodle mash-ups, as well as a handful of snacks and desserts.
Ramen Jin is open Monday through Saturday for dinner service.
