    Best ramen in San Jose in my opinion. Don't go for the atmosphere (you are basically eating within a supermarket, but the ramen is killer. Tons of Japanese people are eating there all the time, whic

    The noodles are premade, which is why they aren't the star of this fare. It's the broth, and since broth makes ramen more than the ramen makes ramen... this is one of the best ramen places around.

    塩ラーメンといくら丼の定食を注文。ラーメンのスープは出汁が薄く、麺はこなっぽく腰がない。いくら丼はごはんがやわらかすぎる上にいくらの汁がかかってさらにやわらかくなってしまって残念なことに。海外で食べるラーメンとしてはあり。日本ではなし。有名店なので期待してたけど日本の店もこんな味?そんなことないよね。東京に戻ったら山頭火いってみよ。
