Return to Do-Henkotsu House of Tokushima Ramen, San Jose

Glad to see that you enjoyed the ramen a little more this time. As Cary mentions, this is a good change of pace from Ramen Halu and Santa’s heavy flavors. Thought not at all a light broth, it is light compared to the other places due to the lesser fat content. The noodle also is a change of pace from the “100% proper” ramen noodles at Halu. And as far as I know it’s the only place with the tender, off-the-bone pork ribs. Another only is the stir-fried veggie topped ramen, which is also quite unique in its wonder wok-flavored taste.

The Kara-Age chicken is also wonderfully juicy and flavorful. I’ve also mentioned about their excellent fried rice. Sometimes I’ve gone just for the rice itself. The other set dinner items include different fish, which I’ve not tried but am sure are pretty good.
