Ramen Doraku, San Francisco

Does anyone know details about Ramen Doraku, yet to open on 1042 Taraval Street (around 20th Avenue) in San Francisco?

    I stumbled upon this today. According to the waiter, it's been open about half a year now.

    Chinese run. Middling place; not awful, but not an exceptional ramen shop. Seems cheery and clean enough.

    Tried the tonkotsu ramen. Pluses where nicely cooked egg and tasty pork slices; was a bit thick and uneven for chashu, but it was nicely flavorful. Both the broth and the ramen noodles where lacking in flavor. Not offensive, but not interesting.

    It'll do in a pinch.

      had tonkotsu ramen. passable, average, nothing outstanding. everything on the bland side.

      I believe it's owned by the same people who run the two Okazu-ya restaurants in the Sunset.
