Move over Naroodle and Soupa Saiyan, because there’s a new anime-themed restaurant in town, and it’s coming for your brand! Dragon Ball fans who fancy a good feast will definitely want to see what Dragon Bowl Ramen has got going on behind its doors. Let’s check it out!
All About Dragon Bowl Ramen
Dragon Bowl Ramen is an anime-themed Japanese restaurant on University Boulevard on the East side of Orlando in Winter Park, just down the road from the University of Central Florida.
This spot specializes in serving Japanese dishes, including bao, rice bowls, and (of course) ramen. It’s fairly new to the area, but it’s already a big hit among locals and Dragon Ball lovers alike!
Dragon Bowl Ramen is themed on one of the most popular anime in the world: Dragon Ball. Inside, you’ll find the walls lined with Dragon Ball memorabilia from manga panels and posters to a number of character figurines.
Whether you’re a die-hard fan or you’re just looking for a spot to get some good ramen around town, Dragon Bowl can be enjoyed Tuesday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Saturdays from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 9:30 p.m.
What’s Cookin’ at Dragon Bowl Ramen
We hope you’re hungry because Dragon Bowl Ramen has a sizable selection of dishes to choose from.
Starting off with why you’re here: the ramen. You can get a variety of ramen such as Hakata-style, black, or red tonkotsu, regular or red miso, shoyu, veggie, tori, or curry.
We tried the miso ramen, and let’s just say, it made “me so” happy! We’re sure this dish will invoke the same feelings within you too!
If you’re not into ramen but you don’t want to miss out on the Dragon Bowl delights, you can order a variety of rice bowls. There’s karaage, fried calamari, chashu, tori curry, tonkatsu curry, and ebi katsu curry.
The karaage bowl is to die for! Drizzle some spicy mayo over the crispy fried chicken and send your taste buds on a one-way trip to FlavorTown.
Dragon Bowl Ramen also serves pork bao and appetizers like takoyaki, karaage, fried calamari, krab rangoons, pork or vegetable gyoza, harumaki, edamame, and seaweed salad.
Ready for dessert? Try mochi ice cream in matcha or strawberry flavors, or order taiyaki, a Japanese fish shaped waffle cake.
Dragon Bowl Ramen is a Dragon Ball lover’s dreamland. From the walls littered in manga and vintage posters to the wire-clad flying nimbus clouds hanging from the ceiling, you’re dining in Dragon Ball Heaven.
We know you’re wishing for a good meal, and rest assured, this is one wish you won’t have to bust out the dragon balls for!
