    Ramen House Ryowa: A User’s Guide Traditional Ramen House | Counter Seating Only | Mountain View’s “Best Noodle Place” | Butter Corn Ramen Sample Menu Ramen: Ryowa signature ramen, sesame paste broth, bean sprouts, egg, green onions, nori Hot entree: pan-fried pork gyoza Side: kimchi Word on the Street: East Bay Express raved about the original ramen, saying, “the roasted pork pulls apart easily with chopsticks, but its flavor is concentrated. Enough chiles have been added to the broth to leave a slow, glowing heat.” The Mountain View Voice named it best noodle place in 2013: “These Japanese-style ramen noodles are dished up in flavorful broth, garnished with with cha siu barbeque pork, seaweed and a boiled egg. Butter-corn ramen is a local favorite.” Though the noodles are the “main attraction,” the non-ramen dishes are delightful, according to SF Gate, who relished the chicken kuraage: “the crispy pieces of tender-fried chicken served with salad, could be considered a meal in itself.” Inside Tips The restaurant is small with just counter seating, so if you’re with a larger party, head in during non-peak hours to ensure a shorter wait. The buttercorn ramen is a house original and a customer favorite, so make sure at least one person in your party orders a bowl Vocab Lesson Shoyu: a Japanese soy sauce made from both soya beans and wheat (as opposed to tamari, which is only made from soya beans) Tonkotsu Ramen: ramen made with pork bone broth While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Eyelash extensions can enhance looks and help cool off hot soup.
