Partially concealed behind the garden on the bottom level of downtown Denver's Sakura Square, this nondescript restaurant has a menu packed with traditional items—udon, curries, rice bowls, and more—but the ramen is the real draw. Of the eight available, the miso ramen is the standout. Japanese-born chef Jun Watanabe combines miso with stock to create a rich, silky broth that's ladled over al dente noodles, tender slices of pork, boiled egg, bamboo shoots, and green onion. We slurped to the last drop as we contemplated a return visit. The $20 bill (for two) made it a sure thing.
