YOKOHAMA IEKEI RAMEN – UNION CITY, CA (BAY AREA)

My new favorite Ramen spot! We were here last night, it was packed and we waited was about 20 minutes for seating. Service was pretty good.

There were many appetizers on the menu, we picked couple to start our meal. There were few types of Ramen to choose from: Spicy Ramen with 4 level of spicyness, Black Garlic Ramen, Classic Iekei Ramen, and Classic Shio Ramen.

We ordered:

Fried Squid – a little of the chewier side, but still tasty.

Chicken Karaage (Classic) – served hot and crispy, but not impressed.

Spicy Ramen level 1 (beginner) – we wanted to order level 2 (entry level), the waiter warned that level 1 is pretty spicy. Bf didn’t want to burn his tongue, so he ordered level 1. Soup was spicy, bf though the spiciness was just right for him. Broth was flavorful, noodle texture was perfect!

Black Garlic Ramen – my personal flavor. Very aromatic and rich broth. Love the perfect noodle, not too soft or hard. 1 thick cut of pork, very flavorful … only complaint was my soft boil egg was a little over cooked.
