What is the best ramen shop in SF?

Looking for a good ramen shop for lunch - visiting from LA in a few weeks.

  1. Here's a fairly recent thread on ramen in SF:

    LA CH'er (and this week's LA Times food section cover boy) rameniac was up here a few months ago - his picks were Kahoo Ramen (San Jose) and Maru Ichi (Mountain View) - are you willing to drive?

    And here's what I think is Melanie Wong's most recent comprehensive ranking of ramen in the Bay Area - her top picks are mostly in the South Bay as well.

    1. IMHO Katana-Ya is the best in SF, on Geary and Mason.

      Also some 'hounds swear by Tanpopo.

      The best Ramen places here are all outside of SF.
