Pre-Concert Dinner

Joan here.

Sorry everyone, I’ve been so busy I haven’t had a chance to do any blogging! But here’s a quick blog on Ramen Zetton in Costa Mesa.

I went to Ramen Zetton several weeks ago with a friend for a pre-concert dinner. We were running a bit late because of traffic but luckily, it was only about a mile from the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.  Not exactly a fancy dinner before a classy concert, but that’s just how I roll.

I ordered the Pork Soy Sauce Ramen and the flavor was pretty good. It had a bit of fish broth in it which I didn’t mind. The noodles were cooked just right and the chashu was pretty good. I had a taste of my friend’s Curry Ramen and that was surprisingly good! The broth was definitely thick and the choice of toppings (corn, cabbage, carrots, green onions and butter!) complimented the curry. But I don’t think he got the best pieces of chashu, they were mostly fat. The ramen were overall satisfying but it wasn’t unique enough that I would drive out of my way to eat there. But if I were in the area, I would choose Ramen Zetton over all the other ramen joints I’ve been to in Costa Mesa.



Luckily dinner went by pretty quick and we managed to get to the venue before we were supposed to. And who did we see?


Esperanza freakin’ Spalding! And her trio with drummer, Terri Lynne Carrington and pianist, Geri Allen. It was an amazing night!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Very cool! I usually hit Santouka when I’m in Costa Mesa because Mitsuwa is just so convenient. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll have to check this out when I get out there (which is fairly often.)
