    Go with Tonkatsu Kotteri. (Regular "non-spicy" pictured) Do Spicy Level 1, a side of Charshu (comes with 4 pieces) & the Mini Bowl of Veg Salad that comes with it. + Side of garlic. Done! 🍲👍

    Best ramen. Get there early because they only make so much soup. It takes up to 20 hours for their broth. Very rich and full of pork flavor

    It's an addiction, really. Premium ramen a with mentaiko/salad combo is bomb. Share takoyaki and karaage. Extra garlic is free and get the chili oil for broth and dipping. Cold noodle is amazing too!!

    Really good spot for ramen and bento. Try the shoyu ramen with if you don't want the pork broth. The food is worth the servers with their rude rushed service.

    Awesome ramen, get's busy after 7pm though. The one odd thing is their credit card system only allows 18%+ for tip, and likewise it bases tip off the complete total (after tax, vs subtotal)

    They have this new system that lets you sign your bill from your seat, but the tip system is set at either "no tip" or 18%, meaning if you want to tip him/her less than 18%, you'll have to bring cash.

    If the pork broth option is too heavy for you, get the Shoyu broth and add in a piece of pork....great flavor, less regret

    Pro tip: ask for garlic. They will give you fresh peeled garlic with a garlic presser. The garlic makes the broth even better!

    All is forgiven!!!! They are now open Mondays and everyone is friendly. The food is also pretty darn tasty... strangely enough kara-age is my favorite here better than the ramen.
