Ramen Dojo--San Mateo, CA

With literally thousands of reviews on the internet and a seemingly equal number of individuals waiting ahead of you for a table (see photo below), the verdict on Ramen Dojo has long been in. I do, however, have one piece of advice: Even if you love your food hot enough to set the table on fire, for this one occasion try your ramen mild or even without spiciness at all. I got the one with medium heat and thought the ramen was OK and the pork was out-of-this-league tender. But, definitely not worth the 70 minute wait.

Then, my son Dylan, who ordered the same ginger pork as I did but with zero peppers, I was totally consumed by how rich and delicious the broth was. The flavor and creaminess really stood out. And, I thought, maybe I could stand in line again after all.
