Japanese ramen noodles with classic, miso & other broths plus a Sunday brunch draw a hip crowd.- Google
"That soft boiled egg was supposed to be the redeeming part of the whole meal!"
"The decor is fun and hip, and the bathroom is literally a jungle."

My quest for the best vegetarian ramen is over, and I found it at Ken Ken Ramen. They have the best vegetable toppings that I've seen in ramen -- especially the tempura butternut squash / sweet potato. It was hard for me to tell exactly what it was since I was wolfing everything down pretty quickly.

Ken Ken is a small, cozy ramen spot. It tends to get loud because it's popular, and the interior feels like a lounge: dark and somewhat trendy. The ramen was good and I would have it again if the wait were shorter, but it's not worth waiting for 45 minutes - an hour for it. I went on Tonkatsu night as everyone suggests, but it wasn't as flavorful as I was hoping for, and the noodles weren't as glutinous and chewy as I've had elsewhere.
in the last week
Ramen is ok but the service need to improve,we sit there for half an hour and nobody even notice us, terrible experience.

Beautiful decor. A bit too dark for my taste. the bathroom is almost pitch black but it's a jungle theme. I'd say one more light bulb wouldn't hurt. The ramen is ok. nothing to rave about. but the egg is so yummy, super runny!!

The atmosphere of this place is fun at first, but then it gets noisy and sort of smelly after a while. The wait is mostly always long, although getting a drink at the bar is fun beforehand. The ramen is delicious, and a little "lighter" than other ramen places in San Francisco.

This was my first introduction to ramen style soft boiled eggs, and holy good god, they are so good. In the mission, this is probably the best ramen you're gonna get. On Fridays and Saturdays the line can be significant (like most decent places in the mission). Also, this has nothing to do with their food, but their bathroom is amazing, and potentially one of the coolest I've been in.

I fancy myself a ramen connoisseur (but won't leave the city to eat it). They have tonkatsu ramen only on Tuesdays and Wednesdays - that Broth!!! so good - the menu describes it at porky milky wonder and it is exactly that. The karage is quite tasty, crispy and full of flavor. The only thing was the noodles- they fell flat - not very QQ at all. the bathroom was....unexpected. I'll leave at that. Don't think I would go out of my way to go to this place again. If you go, go early - line gets crazy long during peak dinner hours.
