Nomiya is a small noodle bar in Uptown that serves a few types of ramen, along with pork buns and edamame in case you need something extra. This place has minimal seating and the line can get long, but it’s BYO and the ramen’s really good, so it’s worth the wait as long as you don’t have a ghost tour to get to afterward. As a heads up, Nomiya is only open 4pm-10pm and is closed Mondays, so plan accordingly.
