    Spicy Miso is my favorite as it has the most complex flavors than just shoyu, shio, or misplaced. Order the combo if you are hungry and want something other than just noodle and soup!

    Thought the Toriniku ramen's broth was too salty. Go for the spicy miso instead.

    Be wary of the wait. Get the miso pork ramen. The Set orders aren't really worth it unless you really like the rice. The ramen is the highlight.
