Orenchi Ramen, Santa Clara
Orenchi Salad. Lettuce, Cherry Tomatoes, Chicken, Red Cabbage topped with Fried Noodles and Miso Dressing. This was alright, maybe because I’m not much of a fan of peanut-tasting dressings I didn’t enjoy it all that much. The dressing reminded me of a miso dressing I got from Ranch 99 before. It was covered in dressing also, a little bit of an overkill so I didn’t really like that either. But the chicken in the salad was tender and good, just wish it had less dressing on it.
Orenchi Ramen. Tonkotsu Soup Base with Soft-boiled Seasoned Egg, Green Onions, Pork, Bamboo Shoots, Mushrooms, Seaweed and Sesame Seeds. Still as good as it used to be! I think they may use duck eggs instead of chicken eggs now, because I noticed that the yolk was a lot more orange and golden colored than it used to be. The egg is also bigger than before also, not that I’m complaining because I get more food, but just an observation!
San Tung Chinese Restaurant, SF
Kimchi. Always comes free, love me some freebies! Super yummy and delicious but also packs a punch!
Dry Fried Green Beans. So good! I could eat this everyday, way to make veggies taste delicious. The stronger flavors of the sauce worked well with the natural flavor of the green beans, the green beans neutralized the flavors a bit. Just the right amount of nommy sauce and flavor with the springy greenness of green beans.
Dry Fried Chicken Wings. This is by far my most favoritest dish here ever! I could eat this everyday too! I love how crispy and sweet the chicken wings are, plus the honey and sugar in the sauce make it skin slightly chewy. It’s super well-flavored and uber nommy! I’ve had both the dry fried chicken wings and the wet fried before but I’ve never been able to tell the difference, if someone knows please enlighten me because I’m literally dying to know…
Potstickers. This was alright, not my fave for sure. It’s just pork and lettuce and stuff inside. Didn’t really think it was anything special nor anything special to write home about.

Green Milk Tea. With Boba. This was alright. Sure, they make their tea fresh, but I didn’t think this particular traditional and classic drink was that great. I think Wonderful Foods Company does a better tea, don’t really see why people would come here for their tea unless it’s for their more special tea creama drinks.
Had to see what the fuss over the McRib was about.
McRib Sandwich. Pretty much a BBQ sauce covered pork patty in a hot dog bun. Pretty good for what you get from McDonald’s, but it also wasn’t cheap. I think it was around $3.29. I honestly don’t expect much from McDonald’s so I thought it was pretty okay. It was interesting and the sauce tasted good, smoky but not overly tangy which I liked.
