I’m big on ambiance and this place has it in spades. I love the tiny patio, but inside, the bar is pretty chill too. Mojo Taqueria has that “we’re pretty cool without trying” feel.
I haven’t been to Japan, but this is the kind of ramen restaurant I imagine is all over the place. Get it in my face fast because I gotta run, kind of ramen.
