Watch the noodles being hand-rolled at Teinei. That’s what gives this South Lake Union store’s ramen the edge. Owner Minoru Ido had the foresight to bring a noodle-making machine from Japan so that the restaurant could offer high-quality noodles on a consistent basis. Noodles can be fickle, changing with the humidity, and some flour can soak up water while other types don’t. By making all the noodles in house, Teinei is able to troubleshoot on the spot. That’s why its ramen noodles are second to none in Seattle. We recommend the Shoyu Ramen.
