I have never had ramen before, and it was a great experience! The bartender was very friendly and helpful on how to order and how it works. It was a little expensive but worth it because they give you a ton of food!! I will definitely go back the next time I go to Dallas.

Oni Ramen Deep Ellum: Fort Worth’s Best Ramen

Oni Ramen may be one of the many ramen houses in Dallas, but unquestionably, it’s one of the best. Ever since opening in 2016, it has established itself as a major player in the Japanese cuisine scene of Deep Ellum. The food here never disappoints as they’re always hot, delightful, and have the perfect flavors.

The bar inside is pretty welcoming. Likewise, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. They’ll even provide you with recommendations if you’re having a hard time deciding on which to order. And with its cocktails, brick walls, and outdoor seating area, the restaurant epitomizes what the new city is all about.

Serving Piping Hot Ramen You’ll Enjoy

Oni Ramen Deep EllumThe creative dishes of Oni Ramen mixes the taste of East with West. Their traditional Japanese ramen is given a bit of a Texan twist, making it unique and distinctive.

And unless you’re going to sit at the bar, you have to place your order through their electronic kiosk upon arrival. 

You’ll be given several options such as classic ramen and an array of specialty bowls. Furthermore, you can adjust the level of spiciness of your ramen, from mild, hot, fire, and Demon, which the spiciest.

The classic ramen on this Deep Ellum restaurant comes in tonkatsu, vegetarian, and the most popular one, miso.

Another favorite here is the Kyushu Tonkotsu with rich and creamy pork broth. It also comes with a slightly runny yet perfectly cooked egg. They then top it off with two massive chunks of juicy pork belly. 

But if you love spicy food or feeling adventurous, try their specialty and spiciest of them all, the Oni Reaper. In fact, the ramen bowl is so spicy that they dare you to eat chef Garcia’s version of it within 12 minutes or less.

What’s the catch? Well, it’s three times spicier, and you have to finish it without drinking a single drop of water. According to Garcia, only three out of a hundred had been successful!
