The Best Ramen Spot in Hoboken, NJ
We visited Muteki Ramen in Hoboken twice and we enjoyed the Tonkotsu Ramen, in which the soup broth is based on pork bones. First, we tried the non-spicy Tonkotsu and on our second visit we tried Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen and we liked the spicy version more than the normal Tonkotsu Ramen. We sat outside and caught what was going on on Washington Street while enjoying our food.
The service was quick, the waiters were polite and attentive and the Tonkotsu Ramen soup was excellent. Flavourful, springy noodles, tender pieces of pork, and a soft-boiled egg with a naruto on the top. “Tonkotsu” means “pork bones” in the Japanese language and “Muteki” means “Invincible” in English. In Tonkotsu Ramen, the soup broth is boiled with pork bones for up to eighteen hours and in the end, the broth looks cloudy in appearance. As I said above, the noodles were firm, the pork belly was juicy and it has enough fat to make us happy.
We also tried Purple Sweet Potato Tempura and Shrimp Shumai Dumplings with Peperoncino Edamame and we fell in love with the Sweet Potato Tempura. Next time we’ll try the Tan Tan Ramen and Akashi Takoyaki, fried octopus balls that are very popular street food in Japan. They also have Bun and Rice Donburi options.
Muteki Ramen has a caption on their napkins: “No Ramen, No Peace!“. I guess it’s true.
You must go to Muteki Ramen if you are a true fan of ramen. You’ll be satisfied no matter how and you’ll probably contribute the world peace by eating ramen in Muteki.
