Owned by the same people from the famed Ramen Dojo in San Mateo, Ramen Parlor offers classic broths like miso, pork, and soy with add-ins like lobster oil and soft shell crab. I should note here that the broth bases are all prepared with a bit of chili and thus all start out as "mild."
Pork Flavor with Garlic Lobster Oil
Good flavor and good noodles with a very subtle lobster nuance. The broth could use a little more depth, but was overall tasty.
Spicy Crab Miso
The spicy miso is at about a medium spice level. The soft shell crab was actually my favorite part - perfectly crisp and savory. The broth flavor was a little overpowered by the spice, but the elements were all there.
Soy & Garlic Fried Chicken
Per Yelp, we decided to try the Soy & Garlic version. All of the elements seemed to be good - chicken without tendons / stringy bits, lightly coated with crisp batter, tossed in sauce evenly - but I'll have to admit the flavor of the sauce itself wasn't my favorite. It seemed too sweet and ginger-y for being "soy and garlic." This is all probably an expectation thing. If I had ordered "ginger," I'd have been quite pleased with it.
Have a great week!
