Asuka Ramen, Bush Street, San Francisco

We have a new ramen restaurant in San Francisco. It's been open 2-3 weeks, and is on Bush near Taylor.

I've only been once, but thought I'd mention my initial observations:

I thought that the broth in the shio ramen was decent. The noodles had good tooth but were a tad gluey. I think it's the best broth that I've had in SF, but doesn't compare to my favorite ramen -- Santouka in Los Angeles.

The piece of roasted pork had that funk that I don't always love with char-siu but that probably doesn't bug everyone. I think it was more my issue than something flawed with the soup. My friend had "spicy miso ramen" which was basically ground pork with a spicy miso broth -- it was good but I'm not sure that it was great. I want to go back and try some more things and see how consistent the broth is.

I've held off on even mentioning it, because I haven't tried the best we have here for comparison (ie., Santa, Ramen Halu, etc), but since no one else has reported I thought we should get the conversation started. Has anyone else been?
