When we want a very California take on ramen, we go to the Ramen Shop in Rockridge - which serves bowls with things like mustard greens, sunchokes, and creamed leeks, and excellent donburi with wild nettles or brussels sprouts. Like most places that are designed like a Scandanavian dry sauna and attract people who probably go home to a dog named Ringo, Ramen Shop isn’t cheap (the bowls of ramen start at $19.50). But you won’t mind - the Ramen Shop is just that good.

Ippudo, on the blurred line between the FiDi and SoMa, is the first SF location of a popular international ramen chain.
Hot Zushi in Lower Haight is a pretty great sushi place that’s right across from a laundromat.
Serious quality sushi, provided you're willing to pay. Akiko's Restaurant will even serve you up a baby barracuda.
