1923 Massachusetts Ave., Porter Square, Cambridge
This Porter Square spot has the most accommodating hours (5 to 11 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday). It’s cash only, there is one kind of ramen (though you can request garlic or more noodles and fat, at no extra charge, if you dare) and always a line. The porky broth is slick with fat, the large bowl filled to the brim with thick noodles. What this city needs is a ramen lunch truck. Why do night owls get to have all the fun?
