We’re crazy about ramen

Our ramen represents who we are and what we enjoy about food — global, eclectic and full of flavor.

We started our menu with Japanese-inspired classics then thoughtfully integrated our founder’s Filipino heritage and our collective enjoyment of global flavors. From our Kahlua Ramen inspired by our fond memories of Hawaii. To our RiceDoBowl which draws from our life-long love affair with a classic Filipino dish.

OUR STORY

Our journey started 20 years ago when our founder visited Japan for the first time as a young student on a scholarship. Quickly he fell in love with the people, culture and especially the food. Time passed. He married. Raised a family and unbeknownst to him, he passed on his love of Japanese food to his wife and kids.

As a family who enjoyed eating out, many weekends would involve meals at one of the endless selections of Japanese joints Chicago offered. Even out-of-town vacations almost always included a visit to at least one popular Japanese restaurant from the area. Eventually family trips evolved to include finding the best local ramen shops – from New York to Los Angeles, Minneapolis to Miami, and from Paris to Bangkok, Manila to London, Reykjavik to Toronto, and of course, Tokyo.

Raised in a Filipino home by a mom (a well-regarded chef in their tight knit community) who taught him his first lessons in the kitchen, classically trained in French cuisine and personally mentored by a ramen master in Yokohama, our founder’s culinary repertoire is shaped by a lifelong exposure to flavors and techniques that crisscross many cultures and ethnic boundaries.

RamenDoBo Noodle Bar is the natural evolution of these collective experiences!

Our ramen represents who we are and what we enjoy about food — global, eclectic and full of flavor.

We started our menu with Japanese-inspired classics then thoughtfully integrated our founder’s Filipino heritage and our collective enjoyment of global flavors. From our Kahlua Ramen inspired by our fond memories of Hawaii. To our RiceDoBowl which draws from our life-long love affair with a classic Filipino dish. To our Garlic Bomb, a true ramen fusion born of technique our founder learned from his sensei in Yokohama and the layering of intense garlicky flavors he has enjoyed since childhood. 

By the way, the “DoBo” in our name means community, which is also our vision. Our dream is to build a community not just of ramen lovers, but of people who share a passion that good food must be carefully crafted, responsibly sourced and sustainably grown.

We are super excited to serve you soon!
