Ringer Hut--San Jose, CA

In need of some hot noodle soup during a recent rainy cold spell, we went to Ringer Hut in San Jose. I went for the Champon, which was a mix of many things in one bowl: ham, corn, cabbage, noodles, fish cake, beef, etc. Pictured here (top photo) is the regular. The broth was a bit spicy, almost too much so for one of my kids. The broth was also notable for its sesame seed oil, which I enjoyed. My younger son got a combo which included a small plate of chicken.

Jenny had the ramen. It was "decent", but not extraordinary.

Dylan had a kids chicken combo (below). It came with three fried dumplings (gyoza), chicken teriyaki and rice. Both boys got ice cream, which they polished off at a much faster pace than their dinner. Dylan got the mango ice cream, Tyler the strawberry.

Service was attentive, friendly and well above average. A return trip for us is a certainty, but we'll probably need cold weather to prompt us to make the trip down from the mid-Peninsula.
