At Marumen, ramen has outgrown the stereotype of a college-kid staple and has been elevated to become the star of the meal. A thoughtful list of ramen varieties dominates the menu and features shio, shoyu, miso and spicy miso options, plus tempting extra toppings. Compliment your lunch or dinner with a selection fro the small plates menu and enjoy the comforting dining experience.
I never want to just judge a restaurant based off of a few visits.The more I come here, the more I enjoy the service and the food. Last time, I had suggested that the soup base was extremely salty. I do understand that traditional Japanese ramen is a little salty; however, initially to me it was overbearing. NOW, the last couple of times I've went, the soup has changed to be more satisfying to my pallet. I do recommend the Miso and Shio Ramen; I like it extra spicy. The egg is unique and amazing in flavor. -Daniel K.
Happy to have found a ramen restaurant that doesn't require a hike into DC. Service was great, and our food arrived very quickly (although our appetizer came out at the same time as the noodles). Spicy Miso + extra egg + Ichiban (on tap!) is the way to go. Will definitely frequent more often. -Wendy C.
My first time visit today and I already fell in love with Marumen. Really good. I had Nasu Salad and Shio Ramen. And DC Brau. This place has all the important factors for me to give a five star. Taste, Presentation, Price, Service, Interior, Parking, etc. Now I don't have to drive to Chinatown or Wheaton for a good bowl of Ramen anymore! -Norry H.
Came here on a Sunday afternoon with a few friends. We noticed that there were new items on the menu which seemed tasty. I especially liked the fried chicken. I got the soy based ramen with the recommended extras. Broth of the soup was good and over all I enjoyed the meal. If your looking for a place to relax and enjoy ramen this might be the place for you. -Jim H.
