29 Ramen Shops Serving Sun Noodles Across the US

View as Map

You wouldn't happen to be hungry for ramen, would you? After yesterday's epic feature on Sun Noodle, the noodle-maker behind a ton of the best ramen shops in the country, who could blame you? Well, lucky for you, Eater rounded up 29 ramen shops across the country that get their noodles from Sun.

This is by no means a comprehensive list. As previously noted, not all shops that use Sun admit to it, and obviously there are more than 29 restaurants that do. Consider this just a push to start your quest for ramen greatness. The list below is in alphabetical order; please add your picks in the comments.
