Vegan ramen and apps

Came here with omni friends, everyone ordered a different ramen. We tried both vegan ramen dishes and the shishito pepper appetizer. One note is that the spice levels varied across the different ramen we tried, even if we selected the same spice level. Tableside chili oil helped with that for those who wanted it spicier!

The vegan ramen options were good, but not the best I've had. The Zen (Creamy vegan option) was very sweet and with the sweet fried tofu it was a bit too much in my opinion. The other vegan option was good but sort of one-note. The noodles and toppings were great! I loved the crispy kale topping except that it was a bit oily. The shishito peppers were delicious.

Our omni friends were very happy with their ramen options.

We loved how quick and easy it was to order directly from our phones and pay and tip right away. This is especially great for a big group. It was also very easy to be seated even though we went on a Friday evening for dinner.

Bottom line: I would come back if in the area and enjoyed the overall experience, but wouldn't go out of my way to have the vegan ramen again unless I really needed a place that works for vegans and omnis.

Pros: Good amount of vegan options

Great late night snack!

We got some of the green gyoza and Yasai Kakiage with some rice as a late night snack. Super great 👍🏻 will be going back for the vegan ramen.

I ordered the vegan creamy ramen and the green gyoza and was in heaven! The green gyoza come with a lemon slice and delicious sauce. Highly recommend squeezing the lemon on the gyoza!!!! The creamy ramen was good and the spinach noodles were hearty and tasted freshly made. Next time i’ll give the other vegan ramen a try and will be sure to add 1 or 2 green gyoza to my order!!!

Best ramen I’ve had in SF

No other thing to say, I got the non-creamy ramen, and it was bomb. The best part is the broth and the greens.

Pros: 2 vegan ramen options , Vegan appetizer options

Hinodeya Ramen

Just visited this location last night. Basically, my review of the other location applies to this one too. Only thing I'd add is that it's much easier to get a table at this downtown location, BUT the Japan Town location is special because it feels more like an authentic Japanese restaurant experience. If I had to choose between the two, I would pick Japan Town for the experience...but this location is convenient and just as delicious if you can't make it that way.

Vegan ramen seems to come in all sorts of delicious forms. This vegan ramen is rich and creamy and is almost like a winter comfort food. Good for chilly SF days.

Seriously, I've never encountered such a thick ramen broth in my entire ramen-eating life. But it's so good and well-flavored, yet difficult to finish because it's so rich. I love the veggie options included in the ramen too, such as the kale and bell peppers (but not the squash so much). The thick green noodles are also one of my favorite aspects of dish, they were cooked perfectly during each visit.

Bottom line, this place is definitely part of my vegan ramen rotation.

Bless you, Ramen!

Hinodeya is not a 100% veggie restaurant but it offers terrific vegan ramen clearly indicated on the menu. I took the creamy ramen and definitely loved them. I also tried the spicy bamboo: what an idea! The service of this restaurant is quick and efficient, the menu clearly indicates what's vegan. I would recommend a stop if you're in desperate need of ramen, oh yeah.

Pros: excellent food, decent price, quick service

Cons: not 100% vegan, limited choice

Hearty Vegan Ramen

We had the Creamy Ramen with spinach vegan wheat noodles and soy milk, and the Zen Ramen which had white soy sauce broth. Both came with an assortment of veggie toppings. It’s hard to pick a favorite since both ramens were very good, hearty, and flavorful, that even a non-vegan would find them delicious.

We had additional dried seaweed toppings and missed the free crunchy garlic topping in front of us (towards the end of our meal was when we saw the guy to my left pour almost the entire container on his soup).

Vegan options are clearly marked in the menu with a green “V”. There are 2 vegan ramens as well as other side dishes like gyoza and kara-age that are vegan. Seriously, after a bowl of ramen, your tummy is so full and satisfied, leaving no room for anything more.

We arrived at noon, just in time to beat the lunch crowd. Service was fast, friendly and efficient--perfect for the worker-bee rushing back to work. Interior was sleek and modern; dining and restrooms were clean and spacious. I’ll surely be spending many lunch dates here.

Pros: Delicious umami ramen in downtown San Francisco , Decent no. of vegan options , Clean resto, clean bathrooms, great service
