    The first stateside outpost of Japan’s popular Kukai chain bet on equal parts authenticity and innovation to make an umami-packed splash in Seattle’s vibrant ramen scene, from the wood-paneled dining area and open-action stainless-steel kitchen to parlaying four broths—shio, shoyu, tonkotsu, and veggie, all simmered 10 hours—into a variety of memorable bowls. By marrying French consommé techniques like preroasting the bones, resulting stocks are nearly oil-free and clear, a perfect base for more subtle toppings such as tender kelp and citrusy yuzu.
