We were looking for Japanese good quality food for lunch and we came to this wonderful place, like time travel lung in Asia! The Ramen restaurant is inside the food market! There was a 20-30 mins wait, you choose your soup, there are many combinations. It was very agreeable wait, you have several choices for a great budget! The food is delicious and authentic! You buy and sit to eat. Next to it there is amazing Japanese ice cream, not to miss, get the waffle 3-taste boat for 4,50! Then visit the Japanese book store! Amazing experience, food and time!

If you are hungry for ramen, Santouka Ramen is great!

Santouka Ramen is usually inside of every Mitsuwa Marketplace.

Good authentic ramen, quick and cheap! And you can go to grocery shopping at Mitsuwa after eating Ramen!

This is my favorite ramen place outside of Japan! They have all the typical broths (soy, miso, etc.). Be aware that busy times like lunch on the weekends can mean 1 hour wait times for food.

This is my favorite ramen place in the Bay Area! The taste is super good. Even though there is always a long time (at least 20 mins), I think it is still worthy! Highly recommend it if you like ramen!

This little ramen stand is inside the food court at Mitsuwa Market. This place is very busy at peak hours; people often line up even before the shack opens. The ramen here is very tasty, I personally would stick to the shio broth. The broth is very rich, well seasoned, and satisfying. The toppings are standard fair, nothing special, nothing bad. I especially like the cha-shu rice bowl that comes with one of the combos. When here, be sure to stop by Matcha Love when you're done for a good cup of soft serve with an Asian twist.
