Organic Healthy Ramen San Diego

Menya Ultra Organic Wheat

- Special wheat flower we chose to make handpull noodles.

Homemade Noodles with Softly Scented Wheat
We make our homemade noodles with only salt and lye water. Our noodles contain no preservatives and artificial colors. Made daily, our noodles have a distinctive sweet wheat scent, springy and smooth texture that will suprise you.

Menya Ultra Umami Soup

- Enjoy the Taste of Umami

Tonkotsu Paitan Soup
Our signature soup is cooked over extreme high heat releasing the deep flavor of compressed Umami. Because we use the highest quality ingredients, no MSG is used. "Umami must come out naturally" This is the fundamental core in making the signature taste Menya Ultra is known for.

Menya Ultra Safe Ingredients

- Delicious and Healthy for Your Body

Roots of Menya Ultra
Mr Endo knows the importance in eating safe these days having experienced a food allergy. Like a mother, we prepare and use the highest quality ingredients as if we were cooking for our own children. Delicious and healthy food is important.For your well-being, this is root of what we believe in. We have devoted ourselves in delivering this to our customers every day for many years. Menya Ultra serves "Japanese Ramen" to you.

Our History

best ramen menya ultra ceo First ramen restaurant nishiki japan head office in Akita Japan

Our first store opened in the northern part of Japan in 1994 in Odate City.
Mr. Endo, The Ramen Master, has been cooking ramen for over 22 years for his local customers.
In 2009, Tohoku Japan (the Restaurant Rating Magazine) named Menya Ultra, the number one ramen store in Tohoku region of Japan.
From 2010-2013, we were awarded four number one awards at the prestigious Tokyo Ramen Show, the largest ramen event in the world. Currently, we have 9 stores in Japan and 2 in Taiwan that opened in 2016. We are excited about the opening of our newest location in San Diego, California, U.S.A. in early 2017.
