NEW: Men Oh Japanese Ramen, Union City w/ Pics

hhc | Jun 1, 201212:35 AM     5

I tried out Men Oh Japanese Ramen Thurs 5/31/12 on a hot evening. I forgot that it was going to be in the 90s or I would not have pick eating ramen - a hot bowl of noodle soup for dinner.

It's between Shabuway & City Salon, around the corner from Marina Market in Union City. It's a small place that seats maximum 48 people, they don't take reservations so you might have to wait for a table.

We got there around 6:15pm and no wait. They only have 1 type of ramen right now since it's been open only a few weeks: Tonkushima Ramen (Tonkotsu Shoyu) $7.95. Suppose to be house-made noodles (waitress told me made elsewhere SF/LA she didn't know & brought in I saw boxes) in pork bone, soy-sauce seasoned savory broth. Comes with some pork, pork belly, bamboo shoots, green onions. ASK for FREE Raw Egg - not automatically given. If you substitute w/ Seasoned Boiled Egg it's 50c More, don't say Extra Boiled Egg that's $1.

Extra toppings Boiled Egg $1; Raw egg .50c; Chashu $1.75; stir-fried pork belly $1.5; Bamboo shoots $1; green onions .50c

Bean Sprouts & something else on table. Ask for water.

Not available yet - maybe in a few weeks:
Gyoza - Coming Soon
Karaage - Coming Soon
Chashu Don - Coming Soon
Butabara DonTonkotsu - Coming Soon
Shio Ramen - Coming Soon

Drinks: Soda $1.5; Iced Oolong Tea $1.5; Japanese Soft Drinks $2; Draft Beer (Sapporo) $4.5

Separate bathrooms in the back - Women's on the Left. Nice artwork of leaves. It's a shared bathroom with Shabuway because when I tried to go back to the restaurant I accidentally went into Shabuway!

They take Credit cards: MasterCard & Visa! Charged it.

I might go back in a month or two to see if they have more offerings.

It's a chain from Japan, don't need to drive to Union City if you live in SF cuz in June suppose to have one in SF - 5120 Geary Blvd, SF, 94118. 415-386-8802.
