Golden Spoon

Locals got to know the true delights of hearty earthy noddles in bowls of robust broths a few years ago when Noel Cruz brought the hipster ramen revolution to Seminole Heights. Millennials slurped with such gusto that Ichicoro opened in St. Petersburg and Birmingham, too. The ancient format starts with handcrafted broths (Ichicoro makes five) and additions of marinated soft boiled egg, shiitake, grilled pork and seaweed. You can get brothless soba noodles, bao buns and salads, too. Irasshaimase!
