Wow, it’s been a while since any food pictures have made its way to the site. Holidays and lots of family photos have put the food pictures on the back burner, but sure enough, I’m still eating ravenously!

In my continuing quest to find delicious ramen in the bay area, I discovered a new ramen shop in Fremont off of mission, across the street from Ohlone College (I’m guessing their mission campus).

It’s a no frills, simple ramen eatery with several types of ramen and tonkotsu, salt, and soy sauce broths.

House Ramen Special

Pork Belly Ramen

Overall their broths are tasty with the poached egg packing in quite of a bit of salty flavor. I personally tried the tonkotsu broth with the taro ramen (pork belly) and was happy with the quality of the noodles. However, the pork belly was a bit chewy rather instead of being soft and fully tender.  In the end, it was a fully satisfying bowl of ramen that met my expectations for ramen eatery that left me with no broth aftertaste nor a heavy stomach. The poached eggs were done exceptionally well and I give them 2 thumbs up for that! While ramen loving yelpers and foodies tend to be diverse in their opinions, I would gather than Dohatsuten would do well in any of their ramen joint recommendations. It sure does for me!
