There's a handful of ramen places that I'd visit over again, and Santouka is one of them. Who would guess you can get a great bowl of ramen inside a supermarket food court? I usually go to the Costa Mesa location (also inside the Mitsuwa market), but since my boyfriend is from the South Bay, this is becoming our new Mitsuwa home.
We arrived late at 7:00 pm, and they ran out of the famous fatty pork ramen. So we opted for the Cha Siu Miso ramen, regular for me, spicy for Stephen. The spicy one only LOOKED spicy but really only had a slight kick, so if you're into food with more flavor, give it a try.
The broth was saltier than I remembered, but still very good. A medium bowl was just the right amount, and since there's no take home containers, I'd rather be just right, than trying to stuff my face full.
2 medium bowls, no drink came to $20 and change.
Thumbs up! Not bad for food at a little food court.
After dinner we went to Mitsuwa and picked up green tea kit kat and other goodies for dessert.
