 Xinji Noodle Bar
4211 Lorain Ave., Cleveland 
While it may be hard to ever achieve  owner Shuxin Liu's recommended five-minute limit when it comes to consuming a bowl of ramen, a time derived from the lifecycle of a bouncy noodle, it’s damn worth trying. Bowls of chicken and pork-based broth contain fresh noodles, silky slabs of buttery pork belly, corn, scallions, mushrooms and, if you're wise, a soft-cooked egg. If at first you don't succeed in the five-minute drill, try and try again at this fantastic Ohio City noodle bar.
