“Delicious ramen noodles, teriyaki, and poke bowls with tons of assorted toppings. If you haven’t been here before ordering can be complicated. Don’t be surprised when owner walks off if you don't get it right the first time. She’ll come back. They also own the Boba shop next store, so it’s not unusual to pick up your boba then head over to ramen. ”
