Reviewed 22 December 2017

Ramen is another comfort food. This is a small restaurant but a busy one even during week days. That shows the quality level of the restaurant.

i had a seafood Ramen and the others in the family ordered for Tonkotsu Ramen and a vegetarian Ramen. We also had green pepper with salt which was an excellent side dish.

The Mocha icecream was a lovely way to finish the lunch.

The tonkatsu ramen (home made) was delicious! Loved the addition of the boiled egg which oozed the partially cooked yolk and the pork belly. I had read on Yelp to be sure to spend 4 quarters more to get the rich broth -- which we did, and it was worth it!!! The beer and ramen together were refreshing and satisfying. The appetizer of grilled squid (octopus legs?) was amazing! The flavor of the sauce that it came with was veeery tasty. I should have asked what it was, but didn't. Even though it was in a strip mall that didn't look very busy, the place was packed. We took seats at the counter rather than having to wait.

Tried the seafood ramen, PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS !!!
12$ for:
- 3 small shrimps heads-on, getting my hands burned and dirty trying to clean them off.
- 3 very small fish pieces, not identified, and tasting like a 1 month old frozen fish (i can buy better fish at any grocery store)
- a broth tasteless
- Nothing else beside noodles
Very disappointed, I am not going to come back again, better go to republic ramen

Attentive service in a casual, laid back atmosphere. The feel of the tables, chairs, and condiments on a little tray at each table was reminiscent of the noodle shops in Southeast Asia I used to go to for lunch.

Tonkotsu ramen was satisfying. Fresh noodles made on premises. The broth had a nice depth of flavor.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the soymilk ramen on the menu too and plan to try it next time. My boyfriend had it and enjoyed.

My favorite add-ons like menma, nitamago, and kakuni were also available and quite flavorful.
