Boxer Ramen

The hip hop music here is loud, the bowls of ramen are huge and the space is industrial chic. Portland seems to love it; Boxer Ramen just opened its third location, in Northwest Portland, to complement their Northeast Alberta and downtown spots. Founders Micah Camden and Katie Poppe know how to brand it — they’re also the geniuses behind Blue Star Donuts and Little Big Burger. Try Boxer’s shiitake shoyu, a simple and decadent version of the classic with a soft-poached egg, cabbage and scallions.
