Taste test: the new Ajisen ramen joint in San Mateo

Photo

Last night, a few friends and I went to the pre-opening of a new ramen joint in San Mateo. It’s the latest iteration of Ajisen, located at 211 E 3rd Avenue. Opens today.

I had the Handmade Premium Pork Ramen, and here’s my two cents:

– broth = awesome
– noodles = a little on the soft side, but very tasty
– meat = sooooo good
– lots of veggies = healthy

The only down side was that there were so much meat and veggies on top of the noodles that I had a hard time slurping them.

After the meal was over, owner Akira Onozato brought us a special plate of three kinds of chashu. Sooo good. I recommend you try this place just for the chashu.
