Posh v. Hana Japanese Eatery: Chow Bella's Ultimate Battle of the Ramen

If you've been following our Ultimate Battle of the Ramen, then you already know about the upsets, drama, and good eats we've shared over the last month and half. For those just joining the action, here's a quick review.

We started our March Madness-inspired ramen battle last month by gathering some of the Valley's best noodle restaurants for a tournament-style ramen-off. The first round knocked out Phoenix's Clever Koi, Tempe's Umami, and Chandler's China Magic Noodle House. Posh won by default over T. Spot, which closed and was therefore disqualified from battle. In round two, Republic Ramen fell to Hana Japanese Eatery and fan-favorite Sushi Ken was bumped out by Posh. That brings us to this final battle, which will decide which restaurant takes home the top spot in Chow Bella's Ultimate Battle of the Ramen.
