Went to Kukai Ramen & Izakaya in Northgate last night with my sister and my friend Sachiko. This location opened a few weeks ago. It’s nice that there’s another ramen spot north of Bellevue.
I ordered the karaage and the tonkotsu shoyu ramen. The karaage was juicy, and the pieces were large. The tonkotsu shoyu ramen was delicious too. I think what really helps Kukai’s ramen shine ins their eggs and chashu. The yolk is perfectly runny and the chashu is full of flavor and isn’t dry.
If you’re in the Northgate area, around Thornton Place and you need dinner, stop by Kukai.
