Ramen is a newer addition to our Best of Denver awards, making it onto our Readers’ Poll only last year, and showing up on the Denver dining scene in just a handful of eateries until about 2014, when Japanese noodle shops began popping up all over town. A standout in the new wave is Osaka Ramen, which debuted at 2611 Walnut Street in May 2015, making it onto our list of the ten best new restaurants to open that year.
And this year, we picked chef/owner Jeff Osaka’s underground noodle bar as Denver’s Best Ramen, one of 116 winners in the Food & Drink category.
