Michi Ramen

6519 N. Lamar, 512/386-1908
Hours: Tue.-Sun., 11am-12mid


Starting as a food truck, this place takes on a brick-and-mortar business competing admirably against Austin's other ramen contenders. Housemade gyoza, Chashu Don of roast pork and rice, among other deviations, make this spot more than a one-trick pony.

7310 Burnet Rd., 512/458-3700


Well-executed Japanese home cooking. The lunch menu features some of the best deals in Austin, like the gorgeous sashimi lunch. The ramen is a treat, too. In 2017, the restaurant moved just down the street into bigger digs.

Kura Revolving Sushi Bar

California-based sushi chain ups the fun by rolling plates past your table via conveyor belt. Grab whatever looks good, or put in special request to the kitchen; we're particular fans of the tonkotsu ramen and the chicken karaage.
