Dan Hong Wu is born in Wuxi, China with no knowledge of the X-Men, Godzilla, or Sriracha.
Dan’s first present in the United States is a set of green plastic army men. His first American meal is a 3-piece KFC box. Mind. Blown.
Dan perfects the art of adding leftovers to top ramen in college. Roommates are impressed.
1997: REAL ramen
Dan visits San Francisco’s Japantown. Also blows disposable income on Miyazaki posters and action figures.
Dan live in and eats his way through San Francisco & New York, forgets to save for retirement.
Dan is forced to cook for himself. Discovers love of smoked meat, develops and sells the short-lived “Redneck Chinaman” BBQ sauce.
On a lark, Dan tries out for MasterChef and wins a coveted apron with his signature dish of, you guessed, RAMEN. 8 episodes later is defeated by red velvet cake. Nation mourns.
Dan cooks, eats, writes, and podcasts about the burgeoning local food scene. Can’t stop thinking about ramen though.
2017 – Atomic Ramen
Fueled by his dual loves of pop culture & comfort food, Dan creates the world’s first super-powered noodle shop.
This stuff is literal manna of the Gods. I would eat this every day if I could. You gotta give it a whirl.
Delicious and inspired dishes, high quality ingredients, and beautiful plating. Cannot wait to get more…..and more and more!
Delicious and authentic. Entrées are top notch and presented very well.
The cold ramen was light and refreshing. Perfect for a hot day.
Dan is an amazing and dedicated entrepreneur. His food is fantastic and he’s a pretty cool dude.
Incredible food, fun atmosphere, Atomic Ramen does not disappoint. It’s a feast for all the senses!
I can all but guarantee you that it will give you superpowers.
The ramen was fantastic, and I also LOVED the super hero decor theme!
High quality food with complex layers of flavor. The staff was also nice and the service timely. I could eat here everyday and be happy!
Try the Otomo for a spicy, warm your tummy meal! Delicious. Don’t be embarrassed if you turn the bowl up to get every last drop of that broth!
The broth was some of the best I have ever had (I uh… drank it out of the bowl) and the pork was perfectly cooked.
Our whole family loves the Chicken Kara-Age, but be warned, you’re kids won’t be satisfied with dry, bland, white-meat only nuggets after they try these.
I have never had authentic ramen and was excited to try it. They did not disappoint. Great atmosphere and staff!
I lived directly across the street from Momofuku Noodle Bar in NYC for six years and have been desperately waiting for a place to get amazing ramen here in Lex ever since. This is finally it.
Best bowl of ramen I’ve ever had and the wings are also stellar.
Off the chain! Finally legit 🍜 ramen in Lexington. The spice bomb 🌶 Rocks!
I knew it would be good, but I didn’t know it would be THAT good.
Not just comfort food, but total eye rolling goodness.
You have not had ramen until you have had THIS ramen.
Holee sh… this bowl is a winner. Excellent body to the soup without the stickiness of too much collagen. Pork was soft with a slight crunchy top. Noodles are on point.
GET THAT COLD RAMEN IT’S SO GOOD!
Delicious. oh this has to be fifty characters? ridiculously delicious.
Batdad voice* “Dear God, the Uhura ramen was exquisite.”
