Rakiraki Ramen & Tsukemen opened its doors in October of 2012 and is located in the heart of Kearny Mesa in San Diego, California. Rakiraki specializes in serving authentic Japanese cuisine including curry, tsukemen, or dipping noodles, and specialty sushi rolls, but is best known for its great-tasting ramen.
From the ultra-chic wood exterior to the contemporary zinc-countertops and beautifully hung Japanese lanterns inside, the restaurant is transformed into a modern and rustic space featuring an open kitchen. Guests can sip on Japanese sake or a frosty cold beer while watching all the excitement as chefs prepare each bowl of ramen “aburi” style, carefully adding fresh toppings flame-blistered to perfection.
Using the healthiest and freshest ingredients served in every artfully presented plate or bowl of noodles, the restaurant embodies owner and executive chef Junya Watanabe’s commitment to making Rakiraki the hottest ramen spot in town.
