Slurping Turtle

Slurping Turtle Review

Slurping is not only allowed at this casual River North noodle shop—it's encouraged. Chef Takashi Yagihashi's ramen gained a cult following at his eponymous Bucktown restaurant—but it was only available on weekends for lunch; now the all-star ramen has a permanent home at Slurping Turtle. Bursting with umami, the ramen is almost a religious experience here—particularly the Shoyu ramen with egg noodle, classic Tokyo-style soy broth, braised pork shoulder, naruto, and bamboo shoots. Ramen portions are extremely generous, but it's worth making room for the bincho (white charcoal) grilled meats and yakitori snacks like duck-fat fried chicken.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
