There’s no shortage of noodle spots in Houston, but there’s always room for more. Jinya Ramen in Midtown offers affordable, hearty Japanese soup. A must try? The rich Tonkatsu Black, a creamy, pork-based broth paired with earthy dried mushrooms, crispy garlic chips, a healthy dollop of chili and a subtly smoky poached egg. In addition, there are vegetarian options for the non-meat eaters as well as a multitude of customizable choices.
The best part? Despite Jinya’s affordable price tag (an average bowl will run you $10) the rustic-modern décor makes Jinya a perfect spot for date-night or a night out with friends.
