Spicy Garlic Pork – Ramen Dojo
Spicy Garlic Pork flavor, $9.50 – comes with: roasted pork (2 pieces), fried whole garlic, Kikurage mushroom, green chives, quail egg (one), and chicken gravy (cooked ground chicken, chopped shiitake mushroom, chopped ginger, sesame oil, and shredded red pepper). Went with Mild Spicy and extra topping of corn ($1.00). Orders are made outside, while you’re waiting in line, before you’re even seated. Came here about 20 minutes before opening for dinner, and I was about 3rd in line. By the time it opened, the line had grown about 2 buildings down. It’s crazy.
There’s hardly any space inside for seating. It can seat maybe 2 large groups plus 4-5 small groups, including the bar. The food arrived about 5-10 minutes after being seated. One of the waitresses mumbles the name of the order in a very low voice so it was nearly impossible to hear her. The food itself was delicious. The fatty meat of course tastes good, but also, the noodles are nice and chewy, broth is full of flavor but a little too spicy for my enjoyment, and the corn was a great suggestion to add (thanks Yelpers!). The quail egg was cute and all, but I’d rather have a full-sized chicken egg please. Great meal, but only worth waiting if you’re within sight of the front, not if it’s a super long wait (aka down the block and around the corner and in the next city – kidding! sorta……).
