Yume Wo Katare
1923 Massachusetts Ave.
Cambridge, MA 02140

Ramen is alive and well (despite David Chang's contrary pronouncement) at this small shop in Cambridge's Porter Square. Yume wo katare means "talk about your dreams" in Japanese, which is exactly what diners are expected to do upon finishing one of the three available bowls (pork ramen, extra pork ramen or kids ramen). As you slurp up your last drop of broth, an employee literally asks you to recite aloud your greatest dream. It's kitschy but endearing. Line up early—the wait can be up to an hour—and go hungry—these bowls are big.
