Furious Spoon, one of Wicker Park's hottest noodle shops, is serving up summer tastes with two variations of “chilled” ramen. Executive Chef Shin Thompson and Sous Chef Robin Choi recently introduced Hiyashi Chuka, a Japanese dish consisting of chilled ramen noodles topped with tamagoyaki (thin Japanese omelette), carrot, ham, sugar snap peas, cucumber, nori, sesame and soy mirin dressing. Thompson’s second dish, Tsukemen, consists of chilled ramen noodles that customers dip into a bowl of warm broth flavored with chashu pork belly, scallions and nori.
Takoyaki, a ball-shaped Japanese snack filled with octopus, is the newest side item along with Harumaki, a Japanese vegetable spring roll served with Honey Karashi.
The ramen bowls range in price from $7.25 - $12.25. The restaurant is open Sunday – Thursday from 11 a.m. – 1 a.m. and Friday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 2 a.m.
