Cambridge Yume Wo Katare: real ramen

Ramen, the Japanese noodle soup and ultimate comfort food, is in demand. If there is any doubt, look at the new shop Yume Wo Katare. On any given night — in the rain, midweek — a line stretches out the door. People wait for hours to sample chef-owner Tsuyoshi Nishioka’s food.

Yume Wo Katare serves just one thing, a hearty, heaping, ultra-porky version of ramen: pork-soy broth, thick, handmade noodles, pork slices, and pork fat. Oh, and cabbage and bean sprouts. Vegetables! The only choices you need to make are whether you want two slices of pork ($12) or a truly piggy five ($14). Nishioka, who operated several ramen shops in his native Japan, also offers the addition of ninniku, chopped garlic.
