Warm Up This Fall With Hot Ramen Soup from Haikan

Haikan has gotten pretty busy since opening its grand opening a month ago, and it's easy to see why: floor-to ceiling garage-style windows flood the cheerful dining room with natural light, while a menu focused on ramen bowls and Japanese small bites allows diners to enjoy a variety of different Asian flavors.

Stop by for lunch and choose one of the kitchen's signature sapporo-style noodle bowls. Choose your broth and toppings to completely customize the experience, such as a delicate miso base with bamboo shoots and an egg for a mildly-flavored meal, or the shio broth with an added "spice bomb" and some wakame for a fiery treat. At dinner the restaurant's menu expands to include a number of shareable plates, like roasted kabocha squash with brown butter and kale, as well as mapo tofu poutine topped with mozzarella curds and freshly ground Szechuan peppercorns.
