Easy to modify vegan

Ramen Utsuke is super vegan friendly. They have clear, miso, soy based, and spicy broths. Most places only have 1 or 2 style options, but they have 5-6! You have to ask for the vegan noodle option as their regular ramen noodles have egg. It’s a 50 cent up charge for vegan noodles. Also ask for no hard boiled egg if the option you want comes with that! My favorite style is the spicy miso add wood ear mushrooms. The portion sizes are very good! Have been here many times and will keep coming back.

Best Ramen Restaurant In The DMV!

I have been to Ramen Utsuke DOZENS of times and I’m never disappointed! Out of all of the ramen restaurants I’ve been to, this one by far as the most options for vegans ! You have a good 5-6 different vegan Ramen options to choose from on top of there being other vegan entres and appetizers! One of my favorite restaurants!

Pros: PLENTY of options, Delicious food, Dope atmosphere

Cons: Can get pricey if too many add ons, Crowded at prime times

Delicious vegan ramen options!

When creating your vegan ramen bowl, you can choose their vegetable broth, vegan noodles, /- tofu, and hold the egg. I got the spicy miso ramen with vegan noodles and tofu and it was SO delicious! Even my non-vegan partner loved it and finished off my bowl! It was perfectly spicy and salty and savory…and the charred cabbage (one of the included veggies) adds such a great flavor. Also super close to the Inner Harbor, so a great option when you’re in that area. Also very reasonably priced.

They speak vegan at this buzzy ramen spot

We really enjoyed our meal at this buzzy ramen place, located at street level of the very swanky 414 Light Street building. There were both communal tables filled with chatty twenty-somethings as well as nicely sized booths and tables with families and couples. The waiter was very well-versed in the vegan options. For a starter, we enjoyed the Sweet Potato Roll - magnificently topped with a crown of tempura green beans - and the avocado roll, both very well executed. Next , we had some gyoza and the veg curry rice - gyoza were really nicely browned and noodly, the curry was tasty but not high on the veg content if you are looking for that. The star of the show was the ramen - really, really good. The vegetable ramen broth showed a depth of flavor that made it obvious that it was thought through and not an afterthought. The miso veg broth was just spicy enough to be fun without being overwhelming. Both were enjoyed with vegan noodles. Also, don't forget to ask for parking validation if you parked in the 414 Light St. garage - would have cost us $24 for our 1.5 hour visit, with validation it was only $5. This place is a really nice option in the Inner Harbor area, which is getting better for vegan options but still not overflowing with them.

Pros: Plentiful veg options, Two veg ramen broth options, Staff knowledgeable about vegan options
