This Instagram-worthy Mission eatery is a prime setting for date-night ramen. The bar, aglow with hundreds of paper lanterns, serves up a list of inventive sake cocktails. (Even the bathroom is rather sexy, dark and teeming with jungle-like topiary.) There are several broths to choose from, including tonkotsu, miso, shoyu and shio. There's even a vegan ramen, which includes vegan broth and noodles heaped with a slew of vegetables. The specialty, though, is the tonkotsu pork ramen, in which a rich pork marrow broth is topped with chashu braised pork, nori, a soft-boiled egg, seasonal vegetables and chewy noodles made from imported Hokkaido flour. It's garnished with pickled ginger and scallions, a welcome touch to undercut the heat.
