Ramen Taka, Santa Clara, CA
Finally a restaurant in South Bay that serves Hakata style ramen like the legendary Shinsengumi chain in LA. If you are the fan of those ultra thin springy noodle, this new establishment would not disappoint. The broth is more than decent, although still could be more flavorful. The noodles are well done. Toppings are just standard fare but it really wouldn’t matter too much once you have good noodle and broth.
I encourage you all to come and try out their ramen. The ambiance of the restaurant is something you need to overlook. I don’t know what to think of the half empty warehouse decor. Can’t say it is too welcoming. Given the restaurant is still fairly new, I guess I would cut them some slacks.
