Bassanova is a ramen place that people who love ramen should know about. It’s in a below-ground space that you could miss even if you walk by it every day. They serve a few different styles of ramen – including dipping ramen, brothless ramen, and pork-based tondaku ramen. But they’re best-known for their creamy green curry ramen, which you should be ordering in addition to a side of sizzling pork dumplings.
