Okay. So, when I say RAMEN, we’re not just talking about any top-shelf Nissan or Maruchan ramen here. I’m talking about the real stuff: Signature Ramen bowls, Ramen Burgers, etc. You name it, RakiRaki Ramen and Tsukemen Restaurant has it.
Recently, a few weeks ago, I went with a few friends of mine to an area of San Diego where there are some of the most trendy and tastiest popular Asian-based Restaurants: The Convoy District!
There are a variety of different Asian-based restaurants here and depending on your mood or preference of taste that day, you could probably satisfy just about any taste bud you’re dying to feed. However, not only are there just amazing restaurants here such as RakiRaki Ramen, Pokirito, and the Tofu House, but there are also several different fun activities to do with family and friends as well! (I will be writing up a post about “5 Unique Activities to do off Convoy Street” very soon!)
Whether you want to take your family to try something different, have a date night, or have a girls/guys night out, I would highly recommend dropping into RakiRaki Ramen and Tsukemen as they have a wide variety of different entrees, appetizers and other dishes to choose from.
When I went, I just so happened to order the Karaange Chicken. This is an appetizer on their menu that is pretty reasonably priced at $7.75.
According to Zagat Magazine, RakiRaki is coming in at #8 for Top Fried Chicken spots in San Diego. So, of course I absolutely had to order this to confirm this fact.
So, what’s my answer? YES. I believe it is in fact worthy of making the top 10 list for Crispy fried chicken. Being filipino and having a background in basically being raised on eating Crispy fried chicken at tons of family parties growing up, I can definitely vouch for this chicken being on my list of personal fried chicken favories. I wouldnt’ necessarily say it is ranked #1 in my book, but it is in my top 5 places to get Fried Chicken for sure. Also, RakiRaki has several other amazing dishes such as their Ramen Burger (similiar to L&L’s ramen burger, but better) and their signature Ramen dishes.
For a their full menu, hours and more information about RakiRaki Ramen and Tsukemen, please refer to the references section to visit there main website! They are definitely one of the more popular and trendier spots in San Diego for Ramen. So, if you plan on visiting to have lunch or dinner, I would highly recommend getting there early prior to your expected time of being seated to eat. Also, if you hear about them from me, don’t forget to mention that SavvySweets sent you and to say hi to “Aki” for me! Your stomach will thank you!
