Long before Orenchi Beyond opened to eager ramen-lovers in the Mission, folks made the trek to Santa Clara for these unparalleled bowls. The OG Orenchi may look unassuming, tucked away in a run-down strip mall, but their ramen still attracts waits of two hours or more. Don't get cute, just get the signature Orenchi ramen made with kurobuta pork simmered for 18 hours, plus more pork, green onion, and a perfect soft-boiled egg. Oh, and don't get there late. You'll be waiting even longer.
