4. Fukumimi The east-side fave gets wild with cold tomato ramen, garlic oil and fried onion ramen and spicy sesame tan tan men with ground pork and bok choy. 4860 S. Eastern Ave., 702-631-2933.

5. Yusho Group noodle slurpers, meet Yusho’s monster ramen, a $45 bowl of squad-pleasing madness with shrimp, eggs, maitake mushrooms and crispy pork. Monte Carlo, 702-730-6888.
