Orenchi Ramen 俺ん家 – Santa Clara, CA

BF highly recommended this place. We’re here the day after their holiday vacation, 1/4. We got here around 6:30pm, and boy … yup, as expected, there was a crowd waiting outside. We put our name on the list, there was about 15 names ahead of us. We even went to the grocery next door to browse around …

It was well over 1 hour wait, we finally got our table. Place is small, and tables are tightly packed. They have a big jar of ice water on each table, also minced garlic and pepper flakes condiments.

We ordered:

Tako Wasabi (Octopus Wasabi): finely chopped and served in wasabi sauce, a bit chewy, but it was good.

Karaage (Fried Chicken): it was a little greasy. chicken was juicy and crispy. remember to squeeze the lemon juice, it makes a big difference.

Orenchi Ramen (Tonkotsu base) – it was soooooo good. Soup base was rich and flavorful! Noodle was perfect al dente! Ok, maybe its just me … the soup was a little salty to me (glad there was a jar of water on our table). They could use more than 1 of pork belly though. My runny egg wasn’t too runny …. oh, you can add additional toppings for extra charge.
