    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!

    They upgraded salmon roe rice and got more expensive. Santouka south cal is cheaper. Santouka Hong Kong has potato croquette set with Ramen. Santouka everywhere!!! (Even in Philippines)

    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。
