The Broke Da Mouth tonkotsu ramen from Masa Ramen Bistro turns heads—it’s loaded with black garlic oil and pork belly chashu, then finished with a pile of fresh parmesan you’ll want to bury yourself under. But red carpet-ready noodle soup isn’t the only reason to roll up to this casual Downtown Berkeley spot. Japanese and Hawaiian dishes, like loco moco, spam musubi, and mochiko chicken you’ll want to order by the bucketful, are worth your time. This place is a great option for easy lunches near the Cal campus, or for dinners likely involving leftovers.
