Since first opening in Wicker Park, Furious Spoon has launched expansions in Logan Square, Pilsen, the Loop and beyond. That success can be credited to chef Shin Thompson’s ramen recipes, a commitment to housemade noodles and Furious Spoon’s brand of unabashed grit, loud music and graffiti-style art.
Must-order: Chicken shio ramen with tender white pepper chicken, bamboo shoots, scallions and sesame seeds. To drink, Surly Brewing Co.’s aptly dubbed Furious beer, an American-style IPA that pairs perfectly with ramen.
Insider tip: The noodles are pulled by hand using equipment imported from Osaka.
