The Ramen Burger made their West Coast debut at the Torrance Mitsuwa today starting at 11am. My group arrived around 9:45 and ended up being around the 260th place in line. After a very long wait, we managed to get our burgers a little before 1:30pm. So how was it? It was great! The burger...

ramen quick review: ken ramen – costa mesa, ca

Ken Ramen opened up about a month ago near Triangle Plaza in Costa Mesa and today’s perfect ramen weather! I tried the ramen trifecta: gyoza, fried rice, and the tonkotsu ramen. The gyoza was really good: perfect texture and a juicy and meaty but not too dense filling. And the fried rice was great. The...
