Food, Washington DC Comments Off on Ren’s Ramen (Silver Springs, MD)
Miso RamenAfter having closed in Fall ’10, Ren’s Ramen has reopened at its new location in Wheaton (11403 Amherst Ave, Silver Springs, MD 20902). Their miso ramen with stewed fatty pork and roasted pork is delicious as it was at their old location. At $20, a fully laden bowl of ramen doesn’t really qualify as cheap eats, but it is still well worth it. Ren’s is cash only and has limited seating. More pictures after the break.
