430 Geary St
(at Mason St)
If you’re craving good Japanese noodles (ramen) in San Francisco, this is the place to go. I’d heard about it from several Yelp reviews, but procrastinated due to parking aversion (since this is in the Theater District). I finally had an excuse to check it out after a friend hosted a “birthday that’s sort of, but not really, a political fundraiser” for her college resident assistant (RA).
I checked it out with the other L-names (Liz & Leslie). Liz O., intriguingly, had spent some gai-jin time in Japan many years back, and I looked to her tastebuds as the benchmark for this adventure.
