Orenchi Ramen, Santa Clara, CA

I visited Orenchi Ramen two (2) times. The first time, it was on Thursday afternoon, and we only waited for 10 minutes. As for the second time, it was on Saturday afternoon around 5 PM, we waited for 45 minutes.

Back to the ramen, for the first time, I had the Orenchi ramen. I give a grade between B to B+. The soup is kind of fatty, I could see small pieces of white fat floating around the bowl. For the ramen (noodle) itself, it is very thick, strong, just cooked in time, and full of elasticity. Compare to Kuro Ramen at Maru Ichi, it is stronger. The taste really depends on you, and it is not better than one another. You have to try, and taste it yourself.

As for the second time, we had the Karaage (fried chicken), and the Maze Soba. Karaage is like KFC without too much spices (or, MSG). I could taste the freshness of the chicken. Compare to KFC, you may think the Karaage has no taste at all. Then, for the Maze Soba, it is like Zaru Soba, but the soup (or, soba sauce) in Maze Soba is way salter than the Zaru Soba. The sauce has little pieces of fat, and pork. One must be three times faster while dipping the Maze Soba sauce compare to the Zaru Soba sauce since it is saltier, five times salter, if you are too slow, you will end up taking a lot of salty sauce into your stomach, and you will have to drink a lot of iced water to dilute the sauce. The waitress also mentioned that I could add more hot water into the sauce after I finish the soba, and treat that as soup. Well, I think it’s too salty for me, so I did not bother to add hot water into the sauce at the end.

In general, the wait was too long during weekend especially at 5 PM. But, I like this ramen restaurant since it has a different style than Ramen Halu, Maru Ichi, or Santouka (inside Mitsuwa market).
