Ramen Wasabi has been the "secret gem" among the local and non-local customers in Chicago's new destination spot established in 2010. Ramen Wasabi is one of few Japanese owned Japanese restaurants in Chicago that offers a full array of both classical and contemporary Japanese cuisine to bring a unique Japanese dining experience. The relocated version of this Logan Square Japanese eatery adds bar service and expanded seating along with new street-food menu items to the previous roster of sushi and grilled fare. They are currently first to come first serve only. They only seat complete parties and comfortably seat 8-10 people.
