Ippudo, Berkeley report w/ PICS

hhc | Jul 30, 201710:40 AM

I stood in line for 1.5hrs on the 2nd day Sat 7/29/17. It's off Shattuck Ave but the one behind 85C Bakery, next to Blue Bottle Coffee shop & Venus Cafe, not off the main Shattuck Ave, still close to Downtown Berkeley Bart so you don't need to drive.

One of the waitress gave us FREE Japanese Ito-En green tea in a can while we waited, I was happy for that. Once inside I ordered the Shiromaru Classic ramen $14 and didn't read the description closely once I sat down. It doesn't come with egg, that's extra if I wanted it, no thanks since I wasn't too hungry. You can pick how you want the noodles done, I picked medium and they were ok. Japanese chefs told me in Japan they like the noodles Firm so do that.

They have appetizers, rice dishes, sake, etc. I need to go back to try all the other stuff.

One waitress said at 3pm Sat 7/29/17 there was no line.

They take credit cards and there are 2 unisex bathrooms on the left side in the back. No take-out boxes so bring your own containers, finish your food, or just leave it.

I will go back but hopefully in a month or two when the hype has died down and try to eat earlier.
