You'll know you're in the right place when you see the long line of people waiting outside of the small ramen shop in the strange strip mall that houses Daiso, Turner's Outdoorsman, and the Woodworker's shop. The first Menya Ramenya opened in this spot here in San Diego. Menya Ramen is famous in Japan and has won the grand prize at the Tokyo Ramen festival. The only outposts outside of Akita are in the famous Taipei 101 Hipster Skyscraper and here in Kearny Mesa.
Was it worth the wait? I'd say it is worth the wait. They put just the perfect amount of oil on top of the broth to keep your hand made ramen noodles piping hot throughout the whole time you eat it. My Miso Ramen was covered in Black garlic oil and the Tan Tan Ramen was covered with Chili Oil and home made samba. As you can see the egg was boiled perfectly and I hardily recommend that you order extra noodles for $1.50 as you can't get enough of the thick noodles.
