After 17 years 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 that he did. Originally from Tokunoshima, a small island in southern Japan, Ikemizu prepares an authentic menu that is one of the best around. While the sushi, sashimi, and composed plates are truly outstanding, it's the soups that have created the most hype. Choose from several styles (and a few of the chef's own quirky creations), including a 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-hued broth that's packed full of slow-roasted pork and homemade kimchi.
