Evel Knievel could successfully jump over 16 cars, but he never cleared a 50-gallon vat of ramen. That distinguished achievement went to some guy on a dirt bike nicknamed Tim "Mud Dog" this past weekend.

One of the key ingredients has been held up by the Food and Drug Administration en route from Japan. No, Daikaya isn’t importing anything exotic or illicit.

Among the lamb and pork meatballs and Carolina smoked barbecue available at The Pig, Logan Circle’s newest hog-centric Americana eatery, I’m surprised to find a bowl of Asian noodle soup. Perhaps I shouldn’t be. In a time when […]
Ramen joint Sakuramen opened its doors in Adams Morgan yesterday. And like other restaurants around town, there's a little bit of superstition going on behind the scenes. Inside the cozy, low-ceiling spot, you'll find a mural of this ramen-slurping bad ass. Co-owner Jonathan Cho tells us the character is derived from the Japanese guardian warrior […]
