345. Otaku Ramen

When POP-Nashville darling Otaku South temporarily shut down their operation in May 2015, we were distraught. But much to our relief, Chef Sarah Gavigan opened the doors to her permanent ramen shop in December. Otaku Ramen has found their home in the Gulch, and the space is as contemporary and fresh as the food. It feels very appropriate that Otaku means “obsessed” in Japanese, because no word could more adequately describe how we feel.

Do Chef Gavigan a favor, and check your manners at the door (don’t worry, we won’t tell). Ramen noodScreen-Shot-2016-04-01-at-5.33.jpgles are meant to be eaten quickly, so slurp away! That is considered the ultimate compliment to the chef. In order to enjoy the bowl of ramen while it’s at its best, it should take a matter of minutes for you to finish, as Otaku will serve you right as the dish is reaching its peak.

Once the noodles are gone, feel free to pick up the bowl and sip on the broth. The locally-sourced pork bones give Otaku Ramen’s broth a unique, regional taste that still remains faithful to traditional Japanese ramen.
