Yakko-San: Ramen and Respect


After a night of rolling through the Miami club scene with your best buds, you’re feeling pumped and hungry. It’s 2am. What would Anthony Bourdain do? When in Miami, actually, Bourdain and pretty much anybody else with a taste for authentic Japanese soul food would be headed to Yakko-San, where a steaming bowl of angel hair with uni and ikura will take the edge right off the night. You may be at a strip mall, but you’ll appreciate the bright, clean interior, which has plenty of room for you and your crew. Settle into the scene (or lack thereof) and get focused on the food. Reasonably priced and not from these parts, Yakko-San’s menu is a marvel in itself, with everything from grilled beef tongue and black pork belly to chicken gizzards with chives and bean sprouts. For the less adventurous, there are also stellar sushi, soups, and noodles to choose from. A full bar is definitely a draw for boozehounds looking for a 3am nightcap, but the house’s kimchi hotpot of pork, tofu, and clams will make even the most bleary-eyed alert with raging taste buds. At Yakko-San, everyone from cheflebrities to, well, you, are greeted with a welcoming Irasshaimase! which may be more than you got from any SoBe club. Respect and ramen. Now that rocks.
