Tonkotsu Ramen in Clairemont

deckape | Aug 22, 2012 01:30 PM

Ramen Yamadaya, a four restaurant group out of LA, has opened a new place in the Diane Shopping Center just a few doors down from Little Sheep.

Tonkotsu style is the result of cooking down pork bones for some 20 hours to produce a creamy, hyper-porky broth that is memorable. I've never had Tonkotsu before and this one just set me back on my heels. Spectacular, dense, very rich with what I thought were quite nice straight ramen noodles. I know some of you are quite knowledgeable in Asian cuisines so I thought I'd let you know this is around in case you hadn't heard already. The place itself is a bit of a shoestring production with no A/C but has outside seating and if it's crowded there's a self-sign waiting list out front. Also, it's closed between 3pm and 5pm. Really good stuff!
