another thing: try the green vegetable gyoza! I think there's edamame in it . . . kind of reminds me of spinach tortellini!

Hey Kirk, thanks for the shoutout in the blog! I'm honored! Unfortunately, I think Izakaya Masa's quality control has been on hiatus. The past few times I've had the Hakata Ramen, I was disappointed. The broth is lacking, maybe a new chef? the noodles tend to be over cooked too. The pork seems undercooked. I switch my vote for Ramen to Yakyudori overall. Perfect al dente noodles, and the best pork (melts in your mouth like the special pork included in the $10 Ramen at Santouka: perfect ratio of meat to fat). Shio and Shoyu reign supreme there, but Miso is still the best at Santouka (just add some extra water). The Miso at Yakyudori is way saltier than Santouka!

kirk, you have to try the ramen @ Izakaya Masa in Mission Hills! They dont serve the Tokyo style like the places you mentioned. They server Hakata style Ramen!!! I used to eat @ Santouka exclusively, I agree w/you 100%. but ever since I tried the Ramen @ Masa, I was instantly hooked. They only serve it after 9pm, but its well worth the wait!
