Random Bowls with Ramen Fans

20110202-DSC_4914

In a typical month, I meet up with 4 or 5 random travelling fans of ramen. Met up with the guys behind Ken Ken Ramen, a new pop up shop in San Francisco. There were mentions of their spicy miso being one of the first to sell out, so we went to my absolute favorite spicy miso place, Kikanbo. Spices from Japan, China, South Korea, and India.

Good luck Ken Ken Ramen, I'm happy to hear that you are aiming for authentic ramen as opposed to the American trend of fusion styles.

Dokkan is great. Just ask for the 背脂煮干濃厚醤油ラーメン. Seaburaniboshinokoshoyuramen.

ahh, thanks for the tip on ken ken ramen. i live in SF and we have nearly no quality ramen shops. this is especially tough, as reading one of your posts always causes great ramen desires to swell in me!

Ken Ken is amazing! I love it, I just wish they had an actual store front instead of a once a week pop up.
