After watching an episode of "Mind of a Chef" on Ramen, I decided to embark on a Ramen quest this fall/winter. Wasabi had been on my list for months as my top pick to try. Unfortunately they were in the process of relocating and I had to wait. I have tried 3 other Ramen soups in my quest thus far and I they were not to my liking at all. But Wasabi finally reopened and my darling husband took me for dinner. It was well worth the wait! We arrived early to ensure we'd be seated right away, because it has been packed to the gills when we've driven by later in the evening. Our server was amazing. He was warm, friendly, cheerful, and on point with suggestions and explanations, loved him! We had the pork buns, which were incredibly delicious bites of heaven that we easily could have made a meal out of if we'd ordered a few more. I had the Tonkotsu Ramen and it was exactly what I've been waiting for! I let my husband try some and he didn't want to give it back. Ha ha The broth was rich and flavorful, the pork belly was divine and the marinated egg was so creamy and delicious it was ridiculous. Our entire experience was perfect, except for one thing.... the seating was little tight and not very comfy. I guess they don't want you to get too comfy lest you stay all night! We will be coming back often this winter.

We went last Sunday for our son's birthday dinner. We've been there on my brithday dinner last year and my son (8 years old) remembers how good the food was and he picked this restaurant. Loved all the dishes especially "pork belly kimchee spring roll, zuke salmon and chocolate cake. I don't really care for cake but that was so good. Always great food & atmosphere! Also location is perfect, not far from the train station and lots of street parking right in front of the Restauarant. At last, I am Japanese so I know what's good and not, this is the place to be.

Wasabi is not worth the price. The rice in maki rolls should be sticky, not dry and falling apart. The special maki rolls are very small and not very special. The appetizers are tiny and way over-valued.
