Yido Ramen and Sushi Review

Tysons restaurant establishes itself as the oracle of ramen cuisine, serving authentic Japanese and Chinese dishes

Yido Ramen and Sushi has become a magnet for both Japanese and Chinese cuisine, gathering customers from across the DMV area.

Located just off of Leesburg Pike in Tysons, Yido Ramen and Sushi offers an immersive experience in Japanese and Chinese cuisine. In addition to sushi, fried rice, noodle dishes, and a variety of appetizers, Yido boasts a healthy selection of ramen, including Tonkotsu Ramen, Miso Ramen, Shoyu Ramen, Spicy Beef Ramen, Shrimp Ramen, Grilled Chicken Ramen, Lobster Tail Tonkotsu Ramen, Curry Tonkotsu Ramen, and Veggie Ramen.

Tonkotsu Ramen: 8/10 ($13.95)

The Tonkotsu Ramen has a pork-bone based broth with three char-siu pork slices, a half soft-boiled egg, bean sprouts, corn, bamboo shoots, two fish cakes, a sheet of seaweed, and scallions. Tonkotsu is a Japanese broth derived from simmered pork marrow and pork bone, which are boiled for about 8 to 12 hours, creating a light-colored concoction. The broth was rich and creamy, coating the noodles with a delicious sheen. The pork slices were thickly cut, the fat absorbing the flavor of the broth. However, the noodles were undercooked, chewy, and tended to clump together. Moreover, the egg was overcooked and under-marinated, the yoke lacking the runny quality that is expected of ramen eggs. Overall, the Tonkotsu Ramen is a true bang for your buck and we highly recommend this ramen for Tonkotsu lovers.

Miso Ramen: 9/10 ($13.95)

The Miso Ramen has a miso bean-paste broth with three char-siu pork slices, a half soft-boiled egg, bean sprouts, corn, bamboo shoots, two fish cakes, a sheet of seaweed, and scallions. Miso is a fermented soybean paste from Japan that is used as a popular seasoning in Asian cuisine. The broth was savory and fragrant–bringing the flavors of the ingredients together into a cohesive dish. While the corn, bamboo shoots, and bean sprouts were all appetizing on their own, they added a nice component of crunch to the ramen. The egg was creamy, though it was a little overcooked. The pork slices were tender, flavorful, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. However, certain sections of the pork were slightly stringy and difficult to bite through. Overall, this dish proved itself to be a staple in ramen culture and is recommended to all first time ramen customers.

Spicy Beef Ramen: 7/10 ($13.95)

The Spicy Beef Ramen has a spicy based beef soup with beef slices, a half soft-boiled egg, bean sprouts, corn, bamboo shoots, a sheet of seaweed, and scallions. Its initial presentation was very elegant, with the broth, colored light red, clearly containing the necessary spices detailed in the menu. The beef was cooked in a traditional Chinese style, making the meat both tender and juicy, though the large portion sizes made the task of maneuvering it into one’s mouth slightly daunting. Enveloped in a flavorful broth that contained well-cooked bamboo shoots and chewy noodles, this ramen’s ratio was close to perfect. Overall, this ramen is a must-try for all spicy food enthusiasts. Our only recommendation is to be very aware of your limits, as the average person has over three coughing fits trying to choke this down.

Hawaiian Roll: 7.5/10 ($14.95)

The Hawaiian Roll includes shrimp tempura and baked eel wrapped inside out with shredded imitation crab stick, avocado, and a chef’s special sauce on top with ginger and wasabi on the side. While the rice was lukewarm and had a distinctly fruity taste, the tempura was crispy and savory, though it was slightly hard and had too much batter, overpowering the baked eel. Although we could not taste the avocado as it was present in only three pieces, the imitation crab was a nice touch, adding flavor and texture to the roll. Even though the plating was beautiful and extremely detailed, we felt that this dish left much to be desired given the price.

Gathering widespread interest across Tysons, Yido Ramen boasts an incredible assortment of appetizers, meals, and desserts. The pleasant ambience the store displays is ornamented by dimmed lighting and ebony furniture. Factoring in the shaded outdoor seating options the store offers and their significantly short wait time for food, Yido Ramen is the ideal location to eat out with friends and family alike.
