The ramen-obsessed amongst us are having a bit of a tough time here in Dallas. While our fellow Texans in Austin and Houston are practically swimming in the stuff (see: Tatsu-ya and Goro & Gun, just to name a couple), Dallas still awaits the opening of its first dedicated ramen shop, Tanoshi in Deep Ellum (it looks like renovations inside are just beginning, so expect to wait a while), and midnight ramen pop-up master Justin Holt says he's abandoning the project to focus on his new job at Driftwood.

Thankfully, there are a solid handful of places in DFW where ramen lovers can get their fix. While none of these places are on par with the greats like Ippudo in New York, most will certainly help stem the craving for a big, steaming bowl of unctuous broth and chewy noodles.
