Underbelly get in my belly.

On my recent trip to San Diego, I tried a hip ramen spot in North Park, Underbelly. Might I add that after all these years going to San Diego I finally understand why North Park is called North Park. Duh.

Underbelly is a cute little (big) joint, with tons of seating and fireplaces for when it gets chilly. I ordered the Kimchi Pickles and the Tonkotsu Ramen (with two eggs). They take more of an Americanized take on their dishes, so the Kimchi Pickles weren’t over the top spiced or anything, but still pretty good. The Tonkotsu Ramen actually tasted a bit more on the healthier side – which made me wonder about the broth. Usually you “know” you’re eating some super unhealthy ramen when you’re in Little Tokyo in LA, but this didn’t have that overly fatty taste. I’d definitely try it again, as they have meatier options such as “Belly of the Beast” that has oxtail, brisket AND short rib in it.
