Known for being one of the best Ramen spots in the Bay Area, Orenchi’s in Santa Clara is a place that boasts many fans. When I first moved here, Kevin and I went to Orenchi’s one day underestimating its popularity. On the evening that we had went, the restaurant had run out of its signature broth, but the two of us were determined to get in on Orenchi’s at some point during our trip. The next day we returned for lunch and already there were so many people ahead of us. Most people would give up, but Kevin and I aren’t those kind of people. We waited until finally it was our turn and it was SO worth it. Orenchi’s really does have some of the best Ramen I’ve ever had. It beats every place in Seattle that I’ve tried and the only place that it rivals is a spot up in Vancouver that Kevin and I have been going to for years.
The wait isn’t for everybody, but if you look at the Yelp reviews then it’s obvious why most people do.
