Get a big bowl of Japanese soul food right in OKC’s midtown. Tamashii means soul in Japanese and that’s exactly what the owners of Tamashii Ramen bring to the district. Low and slow cooking is a critical element in soul food preparation and the ramen at Tamashii is no exception, each bowl starts out as a 10-hour broth.
From this broth, the noodle shop crafts three types of ramen: the creamy and dense, pork-based Tonkotsu; clear broth Shoyu with a delicate seafood brine echoing Japan’s island history; and finally, the spicy ramen, a hearty pork dish with notes of sesame and spiciness.
Begin your meal with flavorful options such as the grilled octopus dumpling takoyaki or gyozas, Japanese pot stickers. Beyond ramen, Tamashii offers garlic fried rice served up fajita-style in a sizzling skillet or savor the melt in your mouth Chasudon, chopstick tender, braised pork over steamed rice, seasoned with special sauce and truffle mayo.
For dessert, Tamashii features traditional mochi, an ice cream like sweet rice cake, in green tea, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate flavors or try the Fuji Toast, a toasted honey pastry topped with either vanilla or green tea ice cream.
