Tokyo-style ramen in Charles Village.


PekoPeko Ramen opened in February 2017. While  we specialize in Tokyo-style chicken broth ramen, we also serve rice bowls and other small plates as well as mochi ice cream. 

We do not accept reservations. During our busiest hours there may be a waitlist, viewable online here. Guests must be added to the waitlist in person at the shop. 

Our shop is cashless. We accept all major credit cards as well as Apple Pay.

Take out is now available! Due to high demand, we are unable to take orders over the phone. [We strongly recommend eating your noodles as soon as possible as the noodles become soggy and the broth will separate.]

Our Story

David Forster grew up in Tokyo, Japan where he developed a passion for Japanese comfort food. He attended Johns Hopkins University and quickly discovered that Charles Village and the larger Baltimore area lacked quality, authentic ramen shops. After graduating in 2014, he moved to New York City to train in some of Manhattan's most popular ramen establishments such as: Momofuku Noodle Bar, Ramen Lab and Nakamura.

PekoPeko is the Japanese expression for a hungry, growling stomach. 

(P.S. That's David.)
