Mensho Tokyo Ramen in San Francisco

Tori Paitan Ramen

Menya Shono from Japan opened up an outlet in San Francisco a couple of months ago (672 Geary Street, 415-800-8345). I passed by there every night this week and the lines were ridiculous. Fortunately, my hotel isn't too far from here, and I was able to come over after 10 PM instead, when the line was much shorter.

I ordered the tori paitan, whose broth was thick and tasty, albeit still not as savory as I was hoping for. They definitely pimped up this bowl though, featuring things like kale and duck chashu. Sure, it was a quality bowl, and I might try the shio ramen next time. But not if I have to wait in line again.

Saru Sushi on 24th Street is really good, have you heard of it? We try to go there whenever we're in the City, which isn't often enough.
