Finally had a chance to visit cult favourite ramen place, Sansotei. There’s usually a huge line up outside of this tiny joint but we got there early to avoid the evening rush and were seated right away.
The menu is super simple: you have four kinds of ramen to choose from, Tonkotsu, Miso, Shio and Tonkotsu Shoyu. If you want extra toppings like more pork belly or egg that will cost $1-2 dollars more. I went with two friends who hadn’t been there before either and was amazed by the very short and concise menu.
We ordered zangi (deep fried chicken) and gyoza as appetizers, which were both delicious. I ended up ordering Tonkotsu, thin noodles in a creamy pork-based broth which includes black fungus and a perfectly cooked egg, the yolk bright orange.
The pork belly was extremely tender and the whole dish was AMAZING. I’m already making plans to go back. Not a lot of talking once the food arrived, just lots of slurping!
*Not a good place for vegetarians since all of the soups are pork-based.
