Yokohama Kaigenro (横浜海源楼) – Las Vegas, NV

Yokohama Kaigenro claims to have “the best ramen noodles in Las Vegas” and without much competition, they very well may be onto something. On second thought, maybe they are just on something. I’ve always said that a sushi restaurant serving ramen has do not enter written all over it; shockingly, that same proverb does not apply here (although I can only speak for the ramen). It’s definitely not close to being the best I’ve ever had, but Yokohama Kaigenro’s ramen does a decent job of comforting the gambling soul. And yes, even in temperatures surpassing 100°F.

Kaigen Ramen: I asked for their specialty and got this. It’s a shoyu based seafood and vegetable ramen that is very similar to an umani ramen without the pork. Shrimp, scallops, napa cabbage, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, and carrots are only some of the toppings included. The soup is a typical shoyu flavor that is thickened by the sauteed toppings. I actually enjoyed it. Although the mediocre noodles brought my msg high back down to Earth.

Down the street from Hard Rock and a block from UNLV, Yokohama Kaigenro is located in what looks to be an old, vacated Japanese strip mall. It’s about 5 minutes from the strip and a good place to regroup after (or during) a long night. Hours are unknown so call ahead to check if they’re open.

  1. Thanks Jay! Yeah, it was pretty chill there when I went. I wonder how it is at night though. Lotus of Siam sounds good. Thai right? I'll have to check it out sometime!

  2. Whenever my girlfriend and I go to Vegas the first thing we do after checking in is head to Kaigenro for some ramen. It's not as good as the better restaurants in LA but its not far behind either and it's such a nice little home-y place where you can almost hide from the “strip” without actually having to drive too far. With the exception of Lotus of Siam this is probably my favorite place to eat in Vegas… nice to see it added here!
