Calle Efraín González Luna 2079, Americana, 44160 Guadalajara, Jal., Mexico
Hato RamenThis small ramen restaurant that opened at the end of 2016 is finding its following thanks to a beautiful setting and a satisfyingly delicious menu. The restaurant is located in the Americana neighborhood, a leafy and largely residential area. It's just two doors down from Hueso, perhaps Guadalajara's most famous restaurant. Where Hueso is celebrated, Hato Ramen is, at least for now, a low-key word-of-mouth place. The restaurant is a minimal study in gray, thanks to the use of lava stone in everything from the stools at the al fresco tables out front to the shingles that line the restaurant's wallas. Sunlight shines in during the day through the open roof in the middle of the restaurant, creating a small atrium. The dishes themselves are largely faithful renditions of ramen and donburi, as well as starters including gyoza and fried chicken, though with occasional Mexican accents and innovations—the use of a variety of chiles to give dishes a local kick is the most obvious one.
