I’m a novice when it comes to ramen. My only previous experience with it stems from those awful, cheap, instant noodles that have no business being called ramen. It’s because of those ninety-nine cent  packets that I’ve underestimated the awesomeness of the real stuff all these years. Fortunately, I finally one of the city’s best and it was as good as advertised.

One of their most popular items is the tonkotsu ramen ($6.95) with its thick, cloudy broth made from boiling pork bones over an extended period of time. The silky smooth and rich broth is comforting no matter what the temperature is outside. The thin noodles were a perfect accompaniment, along with 2 slices of pork that were so tender that chewing has hardly necessary.

Pork is also the highlight of the chashu buns ($5). The mild spiciness of the sauce was amazing, however the cold, wet lettuce added nothing beneficial.

Seating is somewhat limited in their intimate space, so it’s best to avoid during peak dining hours unless you’re willing to wait. And, it is worth waiting for, especially at their bargain prices. If you’re planning on paying with a credit card there’s a $10 minimum. Their original location, still very popular with locals and tourists alike, is located on Spring Mountain Road.
