This was decent. I wish the boiled eggs was a bit softer, but this is one of the more affordable ramens you can get for lunch downtown.

Tori paitan ramen – Mensho Tokyo

Tori paitan ramen - Mensho Tokyo
Rich and creamy chicken soup, pork chashu, duck chashu, menma, kale, burdock, katsuobushi sauce. Double chashu $18
Mensho Tokyo, San Francisco CA

Overall,  I thought this place was overrated – especially for the price! I will admit that this tori paitan broth was delicious. I loved how rich and fatty it was, but I’m sure it’s not for everyone. I thought that the topping were mediocre though. Both the chasu pork and duck were bland and boring, and the other toppings were kept to a minimum. You think they’ve give you a bit more for almost 20 bucks for this slightly small bowl. Meh, wouldn’t go back.

Beef curry – Muracci’s Japanese Curry & Grill

Beef curry - Muracci's Japanese Curry & Grill
With brown rice and hot curry. $10.45
Muracci’s Japanese Curry & Grill, San Francisco CA

The price has gone up a dollar since I was last purchased this dish. That’s not insignificant for lunch prices in the FiDi. The food is still pretty good, and I crave Japanese curry every once in a while I will say that the cuts of beef that I got this time around were sinewy and kinda tough.

Spicy tonkatsu ramen – Pao Jao Dumpling & Ramen

Spicy tonkatsu ramen - Pao Jao Dumpling & Ramen
Pork belly, boiled egg, spinach, chives, nori, bean sprouts, sliced red peppers. $11.95
Pao Jao Dumpling & Ramen, San Francisco CA

This was decent ramen, and I liked the slight heat from the spicy tonkatsu broth. I still don’t like their boiled eggs though. They seem old or have been sitting out for awhile.
