Ramen Lunch Set @ Kaimuki Grill, San Mateo

Melanie Wong | Mar 26, 200403:02 AM     1

When I worked in San Mateo, Kaimuki Grill was one of my favorite spots to enjoy an inexpensive and tasty chopstick-able lunch. Recently I stopped by for a ramen lunch set – miso ramen with four pieces of California roll for $6.75.

The miso flavored broth is decent but leaner and more angular than the version at Maru Ichi. Noodles are the crinkled and springy type, cooked al dente, and topped with fatty, tender char siu roast pork slices. The special thing here is the generous quantity and quality of the vegetable toppings: bright green fresh wakame seaweed and the firm texture of the boiled and pressed spinach. The made-to-order California roll with real crab and a good dose of tobiko is better than most.
