Miso Ramen to Open Soon

Miso Ramen, 189 Newark Ave, has been under construction since last year and while they still have paper up on the windows, they're actually finished with work and are just waiting for permits from the city. They anticipate having their soft opening within the next two weeks!

They recently posted their menu up on the window and it's pretty thorough. They're offering a variety of ramens including an oxtail ramen, several vegetable based ones, spicy, pork, and chicken.


The base broths are made with meat so there are no vegetarian ramens at this time, but you do have the option of choosing from a few recommended broths for each of the dishes - salt, miso, and tonkotsu (pork) are seen the most frequently. They also have a number of side dishes including a couple of salads, pork buns, and gyoza.

All the ramens run between $12-$16 and the noodles will be made fresh on-site with a state-of-the-art noodle machine Miso Ramen imported from Japan.

Keep checking back for more updates as they get closer to opening.

  1. Even the salt and miso broths are meat based? That's very disappointing.

    1. My thoughts, exactly. Since when has miso ever been meat based?

    2. I definitely understand the disappointment on not having a meat-free option. However from my understanding, in most ramens, it's common to have a meat based broth and then use salt or miso or shoyu as a flavoring. They aren't the base of the broth, they're just used to season it differently.

      It's possible with time and feedback, Miso Ramen will end up developing a vegetarian/vegan broth recipe as well. I will definitely let you know if I hear anything about it.

    3. Awww boo hoo. This place is catering to the 95% of consumers who want and eat meat. They obviously want to sell products people want, and meat (which is delicious and healthy) can be sold at an up-charge benefiting everyone.

      Theres a reason you dont see many vegetarian/vegan places in JC (or anywhere for that matter)...they'd go broke in a week catering to the one person who wants (complains?) vegetarian. And that person is probably all high-and-mighty, self-righteous, and find a reason not go go anyways.

      Praise Miso Ramen for their MEAT FIRST policy! Huzzah!

  2. Woooo! Been waiting for this for many months. I have been making the trek into NYC whenever I have the need for ramen, but having this place around the corner will be fantastic!

    1. Further up Newark ave is Union Republic which also has a Ramen selection. I can't vouch for it as i've never been in there, but could be worth checking out one night instead of trekking to the city.

    2. Union republic is not what you would be looking for if you crave authentic ramen.

    3. @Unknown Yes, UR's style is very different than traditional ramen. I'm really excited that Miso is opening up so that there is that option.

  4. I pass by them every day and I was really hoping they would be smart by offering at least a rice noodle option. Guess not.

    1. I think this is going to be a very traditional ramen spot, at least initially, and a lot of the focus for them is on making fresh, traditional ramen noodles. Hopefully down the line they'll be able to expand their options a bit.

  5. Meat broth, not for me, will still check it out.
