The lowdown

At this lively ramen slurp shop, vegetarians need not gaze sadly at their dining companions’ milky pork-bone broths. Chuko offers several meat-free soups, including a miso version loaded with snow peas and enoki mushrooms. Kick up your ramen with garlic-chile oil, then order a side of crispy Brussels sprouts finished with peanuts and fish sauce.
