    Thick, luxurious broth. Ramen bowls come in three sizes (small is sufficient for me!!)

    Really yummy ramen! I love the pork cheeks. Lines can get very long even during off peak hours, so be prepared to wait. It'll be worth it!

    Get a side of pork over rice to your ramen! Try the spicy miso ramen with extra chashu.

    Make sure to get the special pork, it is by far the best meat I have ever had with a ramen. The salt Tonkotsu broth is very good and the spicy miso broth is also excellent. Be prepared for a wait.

    The Ramen is really good, but the wait is long. I guess one should first order and then shop in the supermarket while waiting for the Ramen.

    I love the salmon rice bowl. I think some people may not like it due to the fishy smell. Add a splash or two of ramen soup and you have a great comfort meal. Inside Mitsuwa supermarket.

    It's comparable in taste to the head restaurant in Japan. But the line is always mile long here even around 4pm.

    Spicy Miso Ramen is amazing! Lots of Japanese people come here, which means it's authentic. The line during lunch is long.

    It was great, novice when it comes to Ramen. My friend said order the 33 spicy ramen with a side of pork. Boy was I happy, only thing better would have been a beer or saki with it. Yummy!

    Awesome spicy miso ramen. If they still have it by the time you get there try the special pork. It is less fatty, and perfectly tender.

    If you want the best ramen from here, ask for the "VDubb Special" which is the special pork ramen with salt broth, extra spicy oil, and an egg. Delicious!
