One of our favorite ramen places in the DC area, Jinya just opened up a brand new location at Pike & Rose in North Bethesda/Rockville, Maryland and we couldn’t be happier. Our taste buds are very familiar with their Logan Circle location in Washington. What not to like, a large selection of ramen, small plates, and cocktails. We were very excited when Jinya invited us to attend their soft lunch VIP/Media party. One of the big things that makes this location so unique is a beautiful mural handpainted.

Ramen Slurpy Time
It’s a ramen place, and we are here to have some Ramen so of course, we are all about slurping that broth and noodles. During the event, we sampled some of their most popular ramen like the Chicken Ramen, Spicy Vegan Ramen, and Jinya Konkatsu Black Ramen. Out of the three, the Konkatsu Black is still our favorite. Its more on the traditional side as Miso Broth, but it works so well. We especially love their perfectly prepared steam eggs. After a chat with the owner, we learned that it’s tough to make a perfect steam egg. We appreciate their hard work with ordering extra ones every time 😉
Fun Times with Friends
Like any nomnom experience, it should be shared with friends. Plus it’s a great way to enjoy more food and drinks from Jinya’s vast menu.
Small Plates & Starters
We are huge fans of their appetizers and small plates. While they create very traditional ramen, their side orders are a lot more adventures with things like Spicy Salmon Tacos. They also have a traditional starter/street food treat Takoyaki which is probably our favorite in town. We also recommend their fried chicken which has just the right amount of crisp and little bit of fat.
It’s not a celebration without some fancy colorful cocktails. Good thing they are happy to make as many for us as our drunky tummies can take.www.jinya-ramenbar.com / Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Yelp
