Green Chilli Shio Ramen @ Kitakata Ramen Ban Nai in Costa Mesa

I got to meet up with a fellow ramen head, Bill at this location during a lunch break.  I’ve been here before and previously had the chashu ramen.  You can check it out here.

Green chili shio is spicy, but not overwhelming. Curly noodles were easy to slurp. This was a really satisfying bowl for lunch. This place is legit. This location always has a light of people waiting out front when they open.

This shop happens to be just down the street from Kashiwa. I’ve written on Kashiwa here, here, and here.
