The first SF location of this international ramen chain is on the blurred line between the FiDi and SoMa. (There’s also a location in Berkeley that opened a while back.) While it looks small from the outside, there’s actually a large, busy dining room in the back. The menu has a long list of small things to start with - from buns to fried chicken - and an equally extensive ramen selection (you can even decide how firm you’d like your noodles to be). This place gets crowded, but service is extremely quick. If you can afford to sneak out of your office for a lunch break here, do it.

Chubby Noodle in the Marina is our go-to in the neighborhood for a good time and even better food. We occasionally dream about the pork tacos.
