Owner Kazunori Kobayashi is introducing his own variation of "stamina ramen," which will make Dojo the first shop of its kind in the Bay Area. A type found in Japan, as well as in New York and L.A., stamina ramen is supposed to give you plenty of energy (translation: plenty of calories). Dojo's spicy ramen will be available in three base broths: shoyu, tonkotsu, and miso. We feel invigorated just thinking about it.
Opening April 8:
Ramen Dojo 805 South B St. (at Eighth Ave.), San Mateo, (650) 401-6568; open daily 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5:30-9:15 p.m.
