After 17 years of running a sushi and ramen business in the heart of Miami, chef/owner Seiji "Ike" Ikemizu moved his Mikan Japanese Restaurant (named for the honey tangerine) to Pembroke Pines in 2014. And Broward County residents are thankful he did. Originally from Tokunoshima, a small island in southern Japan, Ikemizu prepares an authentic menu that is one of the best around. The sushi, sashimi, and composed plates are truly outstanding, but it's the soups that have generated the most hype. Choose from several styles (and a few of the chef's own quirky creations), including curry, vegetable, or nabeyaki udon — big, fat noodles bobbing in a flavorful broth. The ramen is prepared in a number of ways too, from traditional tonkotsu and miso to everyone's eventual favorite, the kimchi ramen: a spicy orange broth that's packed full of slow-roasted pork and homemade kimchi.
