Rate-A-Restaurant #349: Furious Spoon Ramen (Chicago)
Restaurant: Furious Spoon Ramen
Location: 1571 N. Milwaukee Ave. (Chicago)
Type of restaurant: Ramen
We stipulated: We were meeting a few of Maria's high school friends, and first walking down the new "606" elevated park. After looking at restaurants in nearby Wicker Park, Furious Ramen sounded the most kid-friendly (and a nice change from everything else we were eating in Chicago).
They stipulated: Cold ramen, hot ramen, add-on toppings.
What we ordered: Maria: "Furious Ramen": spicy miso, chashu pork belly, white pepper chicken, poached egg, marinated mushrooms, garlic relish, fury sauce ($12.45); Mike: "Chicken Shio Ramen": white pepper chicken, naruto, bamboo, fury sauce ($9.75 + 75 cents for the fury sauce); kids: Shared another chicken ramen, without the fury sauce.
High point: The chicken had a great flavor and the ramen was a perfect size -- big for tremendous appetite, or perfect to split and share.
Low point: Not the best place for a big group, as it's a loud spot, which made it a bit hard to carry on conversation.
Overall impression: It was my favorite meal of our Chicago trip. Highly recommended.
Will we return: If back in Chicago, yes.
