Best Ramen in San Diego, CA

Ramen, the ultimate comfort food. No, not the kind that comes in a packet – real, Japanese, slow-simmered, rich broth with springy noodles and mindfully-prepared toppings. Here are my favorite ramen shops in San Diego.

    The tonkotsu ramen here is made with pork bones that had been simmered for hours upon hours. A must if you love rich, creamy ramen broth - and to add another layer of flavor, opt for the “tonkotsu kotteri” version, which includes black garlic oil.

    The tonkotsu ramen here is only available at lunch, and is lighter yet still flavorful. There’s a unique “Nagoya ramen” served here, which has a spicy broth and topped with minced pork and chives.

    Sushi Mura’s tonkotsu ramen has a slightly different flavor from the rest - the broth is less rich and tastes slightly sweeter, less salty.
