More Info


Pirate captain is a quirky Asian and seafood restaurant. The decor is pirate-themed as the name suggests and they serve ramen. This place has the best ramen in the Chapel Hill area in my opinion, but options are limited in that geography. The ramen itself is a solid bowl and good go-to, but nothing extravagant to write home about. Better Asian food lies in Cary.I will say, surprisingly, their Cajun fries are one of the best I’ve ever had. I highly recommend trying those.

The best ramen restaurant in RDU! Although the restaurant does not look fancy, the ramen noodles are so good! Broth is super umami and I have never had any ramen noodles coming with SEVEN WHOLE PIECES OF THICK-CUT CHASHU! Plus, after drinking the soup, you can feel that your lips are super sticky, meaning that they use real pork bone and chicken feet to make the broth, NOT making from concentrate! They really make Dashi and M Kokko in Durham look overpriced as hell.

One of my favorite restaurants on Franklin Street! It’s one of my go-to places for lunch and dinner during a school day as well. The Tontsu Ramen is so delicious as well as other ramens I’ve tried there. The price is good for the portion and the poke bowl is pretty good too! I prefer the eel sauce for the poke bowl.
