Getting It Right At Wrong Ramen

Sometimes, it's the totally wrong things that feel so right. And at Wrong Ramen, everything's just so right.

Wrong Ramen is a cool new ramen joint offering both traditional as well as surprising new ramen creations that typify Wrong Ramen's quirky and offbeat vibe.  Like The Communist, a unique ramen concoction inspired by spicy Chinese hotpots with seven Asian spices; or the F. U. Ramen, topped with Black Pepper Spam, crisp bacon, and fried egg on a garlic pepper broth, a cool breakfast in a bowl. Wrong ramen? Not just yet...sounds right to me.
