Ramen newbie tries Maru Ichi MV

SanJoseHound | Mar 30, 2006 09:48 AM

We were driving along Castro in Mountain View and decided to eat at Maru Ichi.

I ordered the Combo A: Kuro ramen, rice and 3 gyoza. The description of a broth made with browned garlic, pork & chicken caught my attention because I love garlic. I was also delighted to find a small tupperware container of sliced browned garlic as one of the condiments. The dark brown broth was very flavorful & overall I enjoyed it. My only minor gripe was too many bean sprouts. The Combo is a great value for $7.75.

We live in South San Jose, so guess we'll have to drive to get our ramen fix. I've read the reviews on CH regarding MV's Ramen House Ryowa & the Milpitas location of Maru Ichi, but any other suggestions/recommendations are always appreciated. Thanks!
