Wago Sushi – San Francisco

Ramen at a sushi restaurant wasn’t our first choice. However, after waiting 45 minutes for a table at Delarosa only to learn that they texted the wrong number and the wait for a table would be an additional 30-40 minutes, we found our way over to the wait-free Wago Sushi.


It was a bit chilly outside so we ordered ramen. Nobody else was slurping noods, which probably should have been a sign.

The vegetable ramen was fairly bland, which is usually the case with vegetarian broth, although it had an odd floral undertone.


The tonkotsu ramen, also was disappointingly bland, lacking any strong pork flavor – void of the characteristic creamy broth.


The best of the bunch was the chicken paitan ramen. Although the menu listed chashu as one of the ingredients, it only came with a few strips of chicken that would not pass as chashu by any stretch of the imagination. The egg that came with was half of a standard hard boiled egg, not soft-cooked, and not seasoned.


Parking is tough, with metered street and residential parking. Once you’ve given up circling around looking for a spot, there’s a convenient parking garage on Pierce.


If you come to Wago Sushi, you’re probably better off ordering sushi. For ramen, you’ve got much better options in SF – unless you like your ramen bland. Then you’ve come to the right place.
