Steaming Bowls of Ramen in Midtown
Located under the glowing neon Ramen sign in Midtown Bend, 123 Ramen calls itself “Creatively Crafted Ramen for the People,” sourcing ingredients locally for customers to choose from. Vegetable choices are based on what is seasonally available, extending the season of some produce by pickling and fermenting it. They invest in whole animals and use local, grass-fed dairy products and offer gluten-free noodle options. All of their toppings are prepared without gluten and use less-refined oils.
Starting with three “Combo” bowls, you can add extras, such as slow-poached eggs and arugula+walnut pesto. Each bowl comes with noodles, broth, toppings, and a side of house-made pickled veggies. Or get small bites and sides from savory cold sesame noodles to sweet hazelnut-dark chocolate truffles. The Little Ninja Bowl is offered for kids of any combo bowl.
