    This casual Asian fusion eatery stands out with its array of rice bowls, dumplings, and bimbibap. If you choose to go the ramen route, ask for the junior bowl in order to save room for soft serve. Read more

    Patio was enjoyable, but the ramen isn't particularly authentic or good. Spicy and broth-heavy it lacks all the finishing touches: fish cake, bamboo, etc. Pedestrian at best.

    "I like to think of this dish as an homage to pozole. It’s a cultural mash-up of rice noodles, kimchi, hominy, and pork belly in a brothy bowl. It’s exhilarating!" Chef Paul Fehribach Read more

    Wasn't what I expected for Korean/American fusion. The ramen had a hoisin sauce taste, and a special was an udon noodle with a curry flavor

    You can always find Pan-Asian food interesting! Love the urban belly ramen the most! Mixed flavor of Korea, Japan and Thailand! Duck and pho dumplings are a bit oily tho!

    Open kitchen means you can hear the staff saying Fuck that shit....and what a fuckin' asshole. Great lunch conversation! Poor management is usually to blame.

    Pass on the mushroom pho. The broth tastes too much like hoisin sauce which is usually served on the side for dipping. Pea shoot fried rice though is a solid choice.

    Awesome ramen with pork belly, and the specials are so good! BYOB - the Beer Temple up at Belmont and California is a good bet for tasty brews to go along with your pho or dumplings.

    Employees are nice, the space is small, only 4 tables, but nice. My main problem with them is that they can't make any of their dishes without onions. Rice dishes were subpar.

    Urban Belly Ramen: Bill Kim instead uses a phở-like base here, which brings in all kinds of other spices and aromas. This may not please the traditionalists, but works in every other capacity.

    A bit pricey for what I got. Urban ramen came w 4 strips of pork belly and a few shiitake mushrooms for $13. Noodles and soup aren't that expensive
