My Take: it's ramen in the Mission, enough said || Went For: Wednesday night dinner || The Vibe: neighborhood joint || Special Dish: Karashi and Fried Tofu wasn't bad || Avoid Their: Shoyu broth -- too thick for my taste || Price Point: most ramens without extras are under $13.00 and well portioned || The Service: great! || Reservations: recommended, and they won't sit your party until all is there || FYI, FRIENDS: maybe it's fair that I give their other broths another try (they have 1-2 different styles per night) -- Eat up, Kimmie

No ramen served for lunch but their curry makes a great meal. And it is decently priced @ $8 w/tax. Only the bar at the front is operational for lunch (about 10 seating) plus a 4-people table next to it. Pretty much only curry is served, with pork in it or a vegetarian version. The pork is cooked in the curry in small bits (as opposed to having the curry poured on top of tonkatsu). The curry is not too thick and is really tasty.

This place uses waaaay too much sodium in their ramen. It seemed like they used fresh ingredients, but they have no idea what they're doing in terms of flavoring. Both the tonkotsu and the shoyu were so, so salty. Ken Ken is just like Mission Chinese Food, another Mission spot trying to be authentic and innovative, which is totally fine, but they really need to know how to make flavors blend well.

I probably guzzled a gallon of water after eating at this place. Everything was way too salty! Came here because I was charmed by the lanterns and the cozy looking decor but overall a big disappointment. I ordered the tonkatsu ramen (apparently only served on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) and knew it was not for me the moment I took my first bite. The noodles were stale, thin, and undercooked (no, not al dente, I really do mean undercooked). The chasu was ok but on the dry side. Oh and that egg! That soft boiled egg was supposed to be the redeeming part of the whole meal! Yes, it was cooked just the right amount of time so that the yolk was runny but man was it salty! It tasted like it took a month-long bath in soy sauce! The fried tofu appetizer was equally disappointing. It was bland. Where's all the sauce and the the quivering katsuobushi sprinkled on top? The karage here was the only dish I enjoyed but was really nothing special. Conclusion: I will not be returning again.

Best ramen so far! You have to arrive at 6:00pm or be ready to wait for a table. Small place with a great ambiance and awesome food.
