It is so good to see a Japanese owned and operated ramen ya in Huntington Beach (Wintersburg area), right off of Warner, about a block-and-a-half away from the Porsche tuner b|b|i Autosport (if you aren’t a truck or jeep dudette/dude).
Even in Huntington Beach Japanese restaurants are forced to diversify their menu, but while most restaurants can’t do one thing right, so they do a million things wrong, Huntingon Ramen delivers on both sushi and ramen.
Huntington Ramen is usually always busy even if they’re in a obscure location away from the bulk of Japanese restaurants which are typically located in Costa Mesa.
I really like the interior here because of the semi-private booths which is a lot like restaurants in Japan (not necessarily ramen ya’s though).
The three pics of ramen are in the order of what I typically order: tonkotsu, spicy, and shoyu although I should have tried the real tan tan.
Other types of ramen offered are the real tan tan, shrimp special, vegeatable miso, and “vegan ecstacy.” With a name like that, I would like to see if any vegans are going to be in ecstacy eating it.
Try beating the quality and amount of food you get for $11.85 anywhere else, and it would be hard to beat.
I think the two sides for ramen to get are either gyoza (dumplings) or fried rice which they don’t have although….. that could bring about some roid rage in some.
- The waitresses are wearing traditional Japanese hakama’s.
- Variety of ramen from tonkotsu, spicy miso, to vegetable ramen
- Surprisingly that they do sushi just as well as their ramen (above average for SoCal)
- Lunch special combo’s are a nice value for only about $12-13.
- The owner is super cool here and it is reflective in the pricing and quality of food.
- You eating at In’n’Out again vs. coming here.
