    Edamame hummus and taro chips are yummy! Ramen broth was a bit thick/salty, but noodles were great :)

    This intimate Japanese izakaya is the home of the original Ramenburger, offering different variations such as the Miso Ramenburger and the Veggie Ramenburger.

    Ramenburger! Do it. The fried Brussels sprouts are also bomb.

    Pork belly and chicken wings were good! Ramen burger was super greasy, noodles were nearly burnt and not worth the 40-minute wait. Service was eh. Promising but not a Mission must-do.

    Forced my friend to take home & pay for something he didn’t want/order because they got it wrong. Terrible service. Won’t return

    My current must-order: the Japanese breakfast at brunch. Past favorites: the chicken wings, the grilled tripe in sauce (RIP), and the oxtail ramen (RIP).

    Smallest bowl of ramen I've ever seen, delicious though. I made a reservation and got here 45 min before they closed but was still rushed to order and told I would be last table of the night.

    Nothing too special but great for groups. Grab a few pitchers of Sapporo, order as many small plates as your stomach desires, and enjoy a chill meal.

    Hyped way too much. Service was terrible and service staff were jerks. Can find better yakitori elsewhere like at Ippuku. Squid was undercooked, buns were undercooked. Only savior: eggplant.

    Ramen is simply not good. Not sure what the hype is about. noodles were not fresh, egg yolk was cold, too salty. Pork belly was decent, but nothing special.

    OXTAIL JUS over the beef donburi is rich, sticky liquid heaven.

    Chicken karage and bacon-wrapped mochi were the highlights. Pork belly was alright, but tan tan men and ox tail ramen were terrible and overpriced. Walk the extra 3 blocks to Ken Ken Ramen instead-

    Ramen alert! New chef brings whole new beef broth ramen. Your choice of beef cheek, oxtail, beef tongue, or short rib.

    The Kaiseki tasting menu takes you through a range of flavors and textures in seven different dishes, starting with the sakizuke—amuse bouche—and finishing with a bowl of fresh, local fruit.
