Saiwaii Ramen- is there better ramen in SF?

doubledeuce80 | Jan 2, 2012 08:32 PM

I went to Saiwaii Ramen for the fourth time today and am really really liking this place. I get the tonkotsu ramen with spicy garlic and stewed pork add ons. I would say spicy garlic is a must and stewed pork +/- on your personal taste. Major pluses are: minimal lines, friendly owners, reasonable, and for us city dwellers don't have to drive 30mins-1hr to San Mateo and San Jose (ie Santa, Himawari, Santouka). After trying Katana-Ya, Tanpopo, Izakaya Sozai, Oyaji, Hapa, and Suzu and I've yet to find a ramen bowl in the city I prefer, though still need to try Ajisen and not sure if Namu is even worth it. Only interested in tonkotsu. Anybody actually tried Saiwaii and prefer another ramen place in the city?
