    Lunch special: any ramen, rice dish and salad. Ton of food for about $15. Thick tonkotsu style broth perfect for the changing weather (favorite: Spicy Basic)
  • Albert T.

    The tsukumen noodles are just the right amount of chewy, and the broth is delicious (salty/savory/addictive). But the pork and egg left much to be desired :-/

    They are much more generous with the meat and add ons than Ippudo. I'll give the nod to Ippudo for flavor of broth and texture of the noodles.
