#1427: Miso Ramen At Osaka Ramen In Dublin, California

Spread the love

Last week, we went on our big summer vacation! We drove from Lynnwood, WA all the way to Livermore, CA – over 800 miles. Did it in 14 hours – only 3 quick stops, too! We did a bunch of neat stuff – went to the Alameda County Fair, caught a Giants game in San Francisco, and went out for ramen – and not the instant kind. Nope – this is the moment I think many of you have been wanting to see more of. It’s not going to be a common thing around here anytime soon, but I thought I’d share my experience.


Here’s my wife Kit – she got yakiudon – like yakisoba but of course with udon noodles.

Kit’s mom Cathy who got California Roll.

Andy went with a Tonkotsu kid’s meal – you get a bowl of tonkotsu and a dessert!

finally, myself – I decided to go with a miso with corn and had them put in some chashu as well.

So we drank some tea.

Then waited a couple of minutes.

Then the food arrived! Here’s Kit’s yakiudon.

Andy’s pork tonkotsu.

Finally, my miso ramen (click image to enlarge). I wish the pictures came out better, but I only had my cellphone with me – should’ve had something a little better – my apologies. The broth was really nice and rich, the corn very complimentary, the noodles just right and the chashu not what I expected. I haven’t had chashu before and I thought it would be a bit less soft and a little more chewy. It was quite good though. I nabbed some slurps of Andy’s tonkotsu broth and liked that even more – I think I’ll try a bowl of tonkotsu next time.  All in all, the service was friendly, fast and the food was excellent. I’d recommend this place to noodle fans – as being 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

Here’s Andy’s dessert, a small scoop of strawberry ice cream. He played with that little umbrella for the rest of our vacation – I think he even brought it back up here. He really likes it, LOL!  Should you want to check this place out, here’s the address:
