RAKKAN Ramen in City Centre is based off its original Tokyo location that opened in 2011 with only four seats. Luckily for Houstonians, the Westchase location seats more than just four and serves delectable bowls of ramen and accompaniments.
The ramen spot differentiates itself from other ramen restaurants in the fact that their broth is 100% plant-based. This allows RAKKAN’s ramen to have a wide range of food choices for everyone from vegan to meat loving patrons. The ramen is made with RAKKAN original noodles, which are made with whole wheat and are 100% vegan. In addition, RAKKAN provides two other alternative noodles: the original vegetable noodles, which are made of kale, and gluten-free noodles. There are five (5) ramen bases available: AMBER (soy sauce base), PEARL (salt base), GARNET (miso base), SPICY GARNET (spicy miso base), and QUARTZ (creamy base). Bowls come with grilled pork, seasoned egg, and bamboo shoots as toppings or the vegan ramen is topped with sautéed mushrooms, tofu, and corn.
Outside of ramen, the menu also provides appetizers and side dishes including traditional Japanese dishes such as takoyaki (octopus balls) and gyozas (deep fried dumplings) or more innovative items such as crowd favorite RAKKAN buns available with pork, chicken, or vegan fillings.
