With Waraku and Underground opening earlier this year, 2013 has been a good year for ramen options in the neighborhood.

New Ramen Joint in J-Town (Waraku) [San Francisco]

Last weekend I ordered tsukemen at Waraku. The rich dipping broth had complex peppery notes and the thick noodles were pleasantly chewy. The half egg was cooked the way I like it, exactly as greymalkin described. The chashu looked dry at room temperature on the platter, but miraculously softened and separated into tender pieces as soon as it hit the hot broth.
