This tiny South Bay ramen shop seems to fill up almost the second it opens its doors for lunch. While you can’t go wrong with any of the offerings here, we recommend the excellent shoyu ramen ($6.95), soy sauce-based broth served with thick, heavy noodles. Try adding a little fresh garlic for some zing—if you’re feeling particularly DIY, ask for a garlic press, so you can mash your own clove of garlic. Add a side of the U.F.O. Gyoza ($4.25), half a dozen dumplings pan-fried together to create one massive, standout plate.
