No matter the time of day I come here, there is always a wait. But its very well worth it for one of the best ramen in the city. The broth is well flavor with no msg. Tonkatsu, and spicy tonkatsu are the best. You can add extras like corn or egg for $1. The ramen are well done, they just have a little bite, chewiness to them and it goes well with the broth. The flavor combination is great. They moved to a bigger location and the seatings are so much better. But still, same great flavor and ramen!

So this ramen is definitely delicious. Miso, spicy miso, salt - you name it, its all good. The issue I have here though is that there are hardly any "goodies" in the ramen as well. You have to pay an $1 for things like corn, spinach, onions, etc. which at most other places are standard. For the financial district it is an awesome spot to get your ramen on. Lines at lunch can be long so call ahead and do takeout.

I had been here before and loved it. Today I brought my partner, who is Japanese. I asked him on a scale of 1 to 10, how would he rate the ramen. His response: 2. Here's why... His first observation, "If you look around you'll notice that there are no other Japanese customers." San Francisco is a city with a large Japanese population. If you have to wait 45 minutes to get into a ramen shop (which we did), there would be plenty of Japanese customers there. The Japanese know ramen. Point taken. Then he proceeded with, "These are not ramen noodles. It's spaghetti or perhaps a North Korean noodle." While both are quite tasty, he acknowledged, neither are ramen noodles. He also felt that the broth lacked depth and koku (こく). Japanese term the "fifth taste" as koku. Beyond sweetness, saltiness, sourness, and bitterness is koku. And for his palate the broth came up short. But if it weren't termed "ramen," his grade would have been a 5.

we wanted ramen. this place was nearby. it's small and quaint inside. I loved the focus on ramen. made me think of the ramen joints in Japan featured in David Chang's "mind of a chef." I also loved that I could get extra noodles and soup, cuz those are my favorite parts of ramen. We both got the tonkotsu. He added chicken dumplings, egg, and made it spicy. I added tofu, noodles, and soup. So how was it? The noodles were great, the soup needed more depth. Sawaii in the Inner Sunset has better soup, price, and overall bowl. This place has better noodles. The chasu was really dry, and the base bowl (for 11.95) left you wanting (most every topping was additional).

I ordered the spicy miso ramen, and gyoza. The gyoza was not bad, but the ramen was almost as good as cup of noodles. The noodles tasted like they were reused from older orders, the pork was rancid and tough, the soup was thin and flavorless. I will not be back.
