Tampopo Ramen is the Swiss Army knife of restaurants. This ramen spot and sake bar is casual enough for a solo dinner, intimate enough for a date night, reliable for takeout, and pleasant enough to get drinks with a friend. And during the daily Happy Hour, sake is $4.50 and craft beer is $4. A couple drinks in when you remember that you haven’t eaten yet, get some pork buns and an order of the (not-so) spicy miso ramen.
