Good ramen walking distance from SFMOMA/Yerba Buena? Or pho.

Looking for a good recommendation for ramen near SOMA. I'm visiting with my parents and staying in that area, and they like a good bowl of ramen.

Is there a good ramen place in that area?

They are not ramen geeks, so I can take them to a good, but not necessarily amazing, place and they'll be okay with it.

Plus points for a little atmosphere...a little more stylish than your standard strip-mall place, or--better yet--feels like an authentic Japanese ramen place that could be lifted right out of a Tokyo train station.

I'll take pho recommendations in the area, too.....I know SOMA is quite near a great Vietnamese neighborhood. Once again, it'd be nice to take them to a place that doesn't look *too* much like a fast food joint inside. Also, since I hear there's a lot of great pho places right around The Tenderloin, I'd like a place that they'd feel safe walking to and from at night (they are in their 70's, and delicate).

Thanks, SF!

  1. Ramen Underground might be close enough. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/801904

    1. Katana-ya is about as good as ramen gets in downtown SF. Ajisen Ramen in the Westfield Mall is decent, too, but definitely has the fast food look.

      1. re: soupçon

        Both those places will work--thanks!

      2. assumign the quality is the same as the TL location, the new turtle tower in SOMA.

        probably about a 15 minute walk
