Eat a hearty bowl of Ramen and share your dreams and aspirations with others around you at Yume Wo Katare in Boston, Massachusetts.
What is it about Yume Wo Katare that keeps diners waiting in line for hours just to eat a bowl of ramen soup? There are a ton of ramen shops in Boston, so what makes this place so special? Although they serve a delicious and hearty bowl of ramen, it’s the community and aspirational discussion that keep diners coming back again and again.
Yume Wo Katare is found in Cambridge, which many know as the home to MIT and Harvard University. Despite being surrounded by people all the time, life can feel a little isolated and lonely. That’s what makes this bowl of ramen so very special; every diner is encouraged to share their dreams with the other diners around them. During a long, cold Massachusetts winter, sometimes a little praise and encouragement is all you need to keep going.
The philosophy of eating at Yume Wo Katare is fairly simple, if you can finish the entire bowl, you can accomplish anything. When a diner is able to finish the entire bowl, the room cheers for their perfect execution; if only the broth is left, the diner receives a “good job” instead. The environment is unique, welcoming, and infectious. There is only one item on the menu: pork ramen. Bowls range from $12-14 with add-ons available. This is not a private table restaurant experience, it’s an aspirational experience to share with the whole room.
