A new, low-key destination for ramen fans on the westside is serving a compact menu of Japanese favorites, conveniently located almost directly across from Palace Station.
Tomi Ramen & Sake Bar now occupies 1,432 square feet at the Paseo Plaza, a neighbor to Soho Sushi Burrito, the Hawaiian menu of Maui Rose and the former home of Landry’s Seafood House.
Featuring counter-service and table seating, the Tomi appetizers include $5 takoyaki, $6 fried baby octopus, $5 chicken karaage, and $6 soft shell crab.
Ramen dishes are all priced at $8.50, and diners have the option of a tonkotsu, shoyu, miso, or vegetable base with chashu, chicken breast, and tofu ingredients prepared at levels of “zero” all the way up to “super spice.”
Extra toppings and rice bowls can upgrade any meal and hot sake is available in $4 and large $7 servings.
Tomi Ramen & Sake Bar, 2600 W. Sahara Ave., Suite 119, 702-368-0060. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
