Wonderful food and service by a carefully run family business. Restaurant is located in a small historic diner.

Our son (a Vermonter) took us to Tanpopo for ramen. While the outside doesn't look like much, inside in is an old dinner filled with lots of people jockeying for space. Interesting ramen menu plus Asian cuisine for almost everyone. Three of us had 3...More

When a menu, apart from a few appetizers and salads, is so ramen-focused, it better be good. And Tanpopo is very good. The classic tonkatsu was full of flavor and texture, I added boiled egg as well. The roast duck ramen was amazing as well,...More

Great food, good beers, casual atmosphere. Tge ramen was great. I'd come back again and maybe again after that. With a beer and added options to the ramen you'll spend about $20. I enjoyed the engaging lively service!

Boy it’s taken us a long time to get here. On this cold blustery evening we lucked out. Well, kind of. We only had to walk half of a block in the cold wind after we found a parking place, and while the restaurant was...More

I always tell myself I'll branch out, but I always get the same thing- spicy ramen! The pork is incredible, and if you're a fan of heat then it's worth it to get extra spicy added. Add a glass of sake to complete the experience...More
