ABOUT oishii ramen

OISHII RAMEN is a curbside pickup only small business based in Des Moines, Iowa serving traditional ramen, which was made popular in Asia. Our inspiration for OISHII RAMEN started out with our love of ramen through our experiences growing up and traveling around Asia. OISHII means 'delicious' in Japanese, which is exactly how we would describe our ramen. Our ramen is crafted with complex, bold flavors that will warm your soul. We are very excited to share our ramen with you, and to bring a slice of Asia to Des Moines, Iowa.
Come try OISHII RAMEN soon!

What makes oishii ramen special?

When crafting each bowl of OISHII RAMEN, we take careful consideration into quality, tradition, and flavor. Our operation is labor-intensive and complex, but necessary to give the best quality ramen without having to fly to Asia. Our OISHII TONKOTSU broth takes several hours to make, which brings out that savory, creamy richness. Flavor boosters like our aka (red) oil and kuro (black garlic) oil bring the OISHII TONKOTSU experience to another level. Our spicy miso has become another favorite with complex flavors to crave. Toppings like melt-in-your-mouth chasu (pork) is hand-rolled, braised, and charred to complement our ramen with ajitsuke egg's (seasoned, soft-boiled) perfect melted center. In addition, we have a vegan variant of our OISHII Tonkotsu. Thank you so much for your support in OISHII RAMEN and see you soon!
