Best ramen in Chicago! The chadolmen modern ramen only needs rice noodles substituted and is delicious. The other ramen dishes can be modified to be gf too but they might need to switch out meats - the pork belly is not gf. They also add a little wooden marker w. a gf stamp so you can be assured you’re getting the correct ramen! Highly recommend.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
Every time I go here they tell me different ingredients have gluten. It’s real concerning...
I get the GF Veggiemon - the gf subs they make are: no tree ear mushrooms; gf noodles; veggie broth. I never get sick with this order (I’m pretty sensitive) and it’s sooo freaking good. They once accidentally gave me regular noodles instead of GF (luckily I suspected before eating - the noodles looked curlier and darker than I remembered), so now I always open my carry out to check that the noodles are the pale, sad-looking gf noodles. Only bummer is that they’re closed on Mondays and I often want it on Mondays.
Good food, but got cross-contaminated.
Staff was knowledgeable about the gluten free options on the menu and didn’t need to go and ask. Didn’t feel like I was sacrificing anything even despite needing to get the rice noodle ramen.
Staff was knowledgeable of Celiac needs. I’ve eaten here prior to diagnosis and loved it. Pork belly, bamboo shoots, and mushrooms were off limits. Sake was OK though. Specify which one prior to ordering though. I had the unfiltered nigori. Plenty of food and delicious. Can’t wait to return.
Oiistar was great! They have GF ramen dishes (rice noodles) as well as appetizers, beer and dessert. They were careful and very helpful. Best of all the food was great. Japanese food is my favorite so I was so excited to find some I can actually eat!
GF noodle option, GF beer, and plenty of other options!
Wonderful options for gluten free!!
Great food and huge ramen portions! The server was really friendly and knowledgeable. Some of the ramen ingredients are not gf because they are marinated in soy sauce (like the pork belly, mushrooms, bamboo shoots), but they are able to make substitutions or point out the ramen options that are naturally gf. They can make the buns gf by putting the contents on rice instead of on a bun. I loved the duck breast bun served on rice. So good! Will definitely return!
Wahoo gluten free ramen!! This place is a godsend, as we thought ramen would be off the table for us forever. And it's great ramen too-- more "fusion" than authentic I'd say, but we're totally down with that.
The best place in Chicago for gf ramen. Staff is very knowledgeable in all ingredients.
Yummy ramen. Knowledgeable staff.
