It seems like we've driving by Republic Ramen for years now and are always saying to one another that one day we're going to give it a try. Well, after a little chat with our friends Chanelle and Gabe, Scott and I decided it was finally time to give this ramen joint a try.
For a starter we got salted edamame. It was actually happy hour when we went, so the edamame was only a dollar! I was also SO tempted to get a boba tea as well, but decided I would save that for our next visit (they had so many boba tea flavors!).
I ended up getting the Vegetarian Ramen with the original toppings (spinach, sprouts, scallions, and carrots) and with tofu, and Scott got the Chili Pepper Ramen with original toppings and chicken. I was a little overwhelmed with the portion size, but really enjoyed my dish. Scott was also a big fan of his ramen bowl, and has already suggested that we go back soon for another round of ramen.
The restaurant has a trendy, eco-friendly feel to it, and has some really cute art hanging up in the dining area. This little art piece below absolutely warmed my heart, and I think I may need this print in my collection! They also had a boba tea print that was just as darling!
I'm off to school in a little bit and foresee it being a busy day. Getting back into the groove of school is always a little challenging for me, but I am really enjoying my classes and I am SO, SO happy to be in a Public Relations class this semester (feels so good to be discussing something journalism related again).
Have you ever tried Republic Ramen or a similar restaurant before? What are you up to today?
