Dining Guide

Ryu Jin Ramen House

  • Japanese

Essential Information

1831 S St.
Sacramento , CA

The word “ramen” is right there in the name of Sacramento, so it should come as no surprise that our fair city has enjoyed a flowering of Japanese noodle houses. Friendly Ryu Jin, tucked into the shopping center that houses the S Street Safeway, wins plenty of hearts and minds not only with its toothsome noodles, but also with the diversity of its menu and soup toppings: In addition to basic broths like shio (sea salt) and shoyu (soy), the restaurant carries a wide range of tonkotsu (pork-based) soups, including a black ramen soup topped with fragrant black garlic oil, and spicy red ramen, with savory add-ins like red ginger and seasoned eggs. Other offerings include rice bowls, cold ramen dishes (great during hot summer days) and appetizers like gyoza and boiled Japanese sausage.
