There are just about as many types of ramen out there as there are restaurants that serve the dish, but when we're on the hunt for a great bowl of broth and noodles in the Valley, we head to Tempe's Tampopo Ramen for our fix. The restaurant specializes in Hakata-style ramen, known for its signature tonkotsu-style broth and thin, straight noodles. Tampopo makes its noodles in-house (you can see the machine used to form the long strands of dough in the front of the dining room) and serves a top-notch pork broth that's neither too oily or too fatty. Then again, if you're a fan of a more intensely flavored tonkotsu, just ask to "add rich soup," a $1 upgrade that's well worth the splurge. With thick slices of roasted pork, garlic oil, bean sprouts, and a soft boiled egg, this ramen delivers comfort in a bowl.
