SantokoRamen - Mitsuwa Costa Mesa - A Review by another

Diamond Dog | Feb 13, 200504:11 PM

I love trying Elmomonters places.

I went here over the weekend and had the #1 as well. Its called "Salt Ramen" even though it tastes much more than just "salt". Its porky, creamy and so delicious. I can not remember having a better bowl of Ramen.

I suugest getting the #3 which is the same thing, just bigger.

Firm, yet tender noodles. The pork is so gelatonous and menlts in your mouth. Fantastic broth. I was skeptical about eating at a food court, but this was one of the best bowls of Ramen I have had.

It is over priced for such a small portion though. Kind of like that San Sen gumi place in Fountain valley.

I recomend getting the #47 for 99 cents which is a soy sauce flavored hard boiled egg.

This place is in the Misuwa market food court in the back corner. Its the only place with no english on the signage.

After you are done, walk out the front of the store, go around the gas station to the Grafitea place and get a blueberry black tea with boba to finish off the experience.

Thanks Elmo. I would not have tried anything in a Food Court if it was not for your review!
