Boke Bowl

When your kids can slurp and slosh their noodles and it isn’t considered rude, you know you’re in the right place. Add dino-shaped learning chopsticks, colorful to-go cups, a dining room that’s just the right noise to disguise a busy toddler, a menu full of yummy things, and it’s a winning combination! Don’t miss the steam buns alongside your ramen—they even come in a kid-friendly peanut butter and jelly variety!
