Restaurant Review: Ramen Dojo

Ramen Dojo is a popular ramen shop in San Mateo, CA that serves “sutamina” style spicy ramen.  There is a ton of flavor in the slick, rich broth from pork, garlic, chili oil, and many other ingredients.  The noodles were perfectly chewy and the roast pork was tender.  It is served with a quail egg, roast garlic, chives, and pepper threads.  There are many extra toppings one can add on as well.  There are also some great appetizers as well, including specials such as a tofu and shrimp roll.  The tiny shop seats 24, so there is often a line to be seated even before the restaurant opens at 530.  One of my favorites places in the Bay Area.
