If you want a good, hearty bowl of Japanese comfort food, Orenchi Ramen is “the most pleasurable bowl of ramen you’ll ever eat.” The noodles are firm, simmering in a savory broth that is topped with a perfectly half-boiled egg, thinly sliced pork, chopped green onions, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, sesame seeds, and a side hat of nori seaweed. So umai! (translation: delicious!) My mouth is watering just thinking about that bowl of ramen goodness.
Just a few quick tips: First, Orenchi Ramen is packed on any given night, so expect to wait. Just be sure you’ve got your name written down on the wait list so you won’t be waiting too long. Next, the signature dish is of the same name and, if this is your first time, the most ideal introductory ramen choice. Lastly, once your bowl of ramen is served to you, I encourage you to slurp it up as you eat. That’s the only way to eat ramen!
Orenchi Ramen is located at 3540 Homestead Rd, Santa Clara, CA 95051
