Ramen Bar in Squirrel Hill is a clean space on Forbes Avenue. While the restaurant is neat, you will most likely leave covered in soup — that happens when eating with chopsticks and a ladle. Needless to say, don’t go here on a first date or on a business meeting, unless you happen to look really good slurping up noodles. (I do not.)
You are also going to get a huge helping of soup, no matter which dish you choose, either from the basic or specialty list. I ordered the Wonton-Men with the Shoyu base (the original soup base) and fried garlic. The Wonton-Men included a solid number of pork dumplings (which I efficiently speared with the chopsticks) and bamboo shoots.
My dining partner ordered off of the specialty list: Curry Ramen. Good stuff.
Not my fave? The starter of Chicken Karage. Deep-fried chicken, which was mostly dark meat. Just not my jam.
But no worries. The soup was great and perfect for a cold evening out.
