glad you are able to get your ramen fixes!


Santouka still killing it! I usually get a craving about once a year.


It's great weather for it around here Kat!

They still are Junichi! Not the most hip, nor "sexy"; but still "top tier" in my mind.

Nishiki is very hit and miss for me. I've had fantastic noodles and broth and over cooked noodles and weak broth. I don't go out of my way for it but will go there if friends if they're going. Santouka on the other hand is always consistent and solid (like you said). My wife and I used to enjoy Yakyudori too but now avoid it after getting pretty horrible food poisoning.


For some reason; Nishiki has never been quite as good as things were on my first visit Derek. Men; you got sick from Yakyudori? That's terrible.


Thanks for the ramen report. Ramen Yamadaya is closed now and Ramenchan (I think that’s the name) will open in it’s place. Not sure if same people and menu. Yamadaya was my favorite so I will have to find a new one. Santouka still hits the spot and Menya is great if you’re able to get in.


Hi Denver - Nice to hear from you. I'd seen that Yamadaya had closed.....I think we're starting to hit critical mass with regards to ramen here.
