  • Warm up with this aromatic, velvety bowl of comfort
The velvety tonkotsu ramen at Arashi Ramen (Tukwila and Ballard), with pork belly, egg and a side of chicken karaage

When it comes to winter warmers, I prefer a bowl of slowly simmered Japanese pork-and-noodle soup over chowder or chicken soup any day. I’m currently obsessed with the tonkotsu ramen at Arashi Ramen. For the shio (salt-based) tonkotsu ($8.95), master chef Daisuke Ueda, who splits his time between the popular Tukwila location and the new, 29-seat dining room in Ballard, simmers his broth for 16 hours. The result is an aromatic, almost velvety bowl of comfort topped with pork belly, a soft-boiled egg, bean sprouts and green onions. Mmm. I love cold weather. Ballard, 5401 20th Ave. NW, 206.492.7933; and Tukwila, 17045 Southcenter Pkwy., 253.220.8722; arashiramen.com
