Ramen at Flying Cranes [Cleveland]

stuart Jun 23, 2010 05:32 PM

The ramen at Flying Cranes is very good. Not "very good for Cleveland." Just very good. It's a pork bone, chicken broth. The cha shu is fantastic. I'll ask to have my noodles cooked a shade less on my next visit.

The menu has expanded significantly since my last visit. They've got an eel rice bowl, ginger pork, onigiri, tempura and negimaki. I believe the beef-egg bowl and teriyaki dishes were there on my last visit, but I'm still excited to try them. So far, I've had and highly recommend the curry udon and the curry rice in addition to the ramen.

    I'll have to check the place out! We travel to Columbus for ramen. The problem is which one to order -- kitsune or tanuki udon, or hiyashi chuka soba since it's so #$@# hot out! Thanks for the heads up.

      They have kitsune and tanuki udon listed as "tofu pouch udon" and "udon with tempura crisps." They have hiyashi chuka (with ramen noodles). It sounds delicious. It's a new item and wasn't available when I went today.

        Flying Cranes is on Larchmere near Shaker Square. It's about time someone added them to Chowhound's database anyway.
