I might be addicted to their spicy ramen. Is there a support group for this? I don't know if I can afford the gas mileage to get my fix all the time!
Mouth-watering soup slow cooked with 13 different spices. Order a spice level of Sp. 3, finish it in 30 min. & you make The Wall Of Bravery.
Excellent japanese ramen noodles – 3 types of their flagship ramen dishes
Salt/ Soysauce/ Miso
Salt - not so heavy, cleaner (?) taste
Soysauce - in between Salt and Miso, but closer to salt
Miso - white/yellowish colored soup with miso - heavier taste
each of them comes with some veggies and thin tri-tip ish meat in them
the noodles are good and fresh in general. You can tell that by how thin it is and it's chewy. If the noodles are fat and doesn't have the chewy texture, it's not as good.
you can also include additional items such as Cha-shu (pork neck meat - yum), corn, more veggies, bamboo shoots...etc.
and also choose the spicy level.
Overall, this place is solid. As long as you get good noodles I mentioned, you'll love it.
there are other dishes (cold/hot) but i think those are just whatevers... go here for ramens folks.

There are three different soup bases to choose from, many different toppings, and the noodle is always firm with good texture. There are nine different level of spicy-ness to choose from and if you can finish the entire bowl (soups included) of "Special II" within 30 minutes, your picture is taken and placed on the "Wall of Courage". This is first come first serve, no reservations.
