Ima is a casual Japanese noodle shop in Corktown that’s perfect for a quick lunch, weeknight dinner, or after a visit to nearby Batch Brewing Company. They serve traditional bowls of udon, and rice dishes topped with everything from barbecued eel to curry, along with dumplings and jicama shell tacos that we weirdly like. Try the forest udon and if you really want to make a night out of it, opt for a sake tasting.
