2018 Ramen

Hiro’s Gates of Hell at Hiro Ramen House

You’ll sweat a little while you’re eating it, and that’s fine. Your mouth will be aflame, too, but you’ll keep going like a masochist, slurping the chewy noodles – swimming in an aromatic Berkshire pork broth slick with chili oil – until you’ve finished every last bite. Bring a light beer (it’s BYO), and make sure it’s cold. You’ll need it.
