Talin Ramen Bar
- The Short Order
Talin Ramen Bar — the noodle bar at Talin Market — is the sort of dining destination that’s easy to love. You and some friends can try pretty much everything on offer in two or three visits, and nearly the whole create-it-yourself menu is worth trying. If noodles simply aren’t your cup of soup, stop by on Mondays, when a cheerful husband-and-wife team from Sichuan province serves up delicious, tender dumplings. Recommended: traditional and whole-wheat ramen; rice noodles; miso, bonito miso, tonkotsu, and shoyu broths; traditional and vegetable dumplings; traditional and Sichuan dipping sauces; pickled cucumber salad; and the “Duckwich.”

Talin’s create-it-yourself menu can at first be intimidating. But really, ramen isn’t rocket science — it’s kind of hard to screw up. At the register, simply highlight your choices on the slip of paper attached to the tiny clipboard that will be handed to you.
