Kohryu used to be my favorite ramen-ya in Orange County up until their recent change of ownership. Now it's just a reminder of my mom's broken english--"I kohryu laeta." Joking aside, the ramen is relatively decent and still may be my first choice when visiting Costa Mesa, but it will never live up to the ramen-ya it used to be.
(I apologize for not having any pics here. My storage card crashed when trying to upload them. I'll take some more when I get a chance to go back.)
Shoyu-ramen: Good flavor, light taste, not very filling. The noodle texture was good but the toppings (or lack thereof) sucked. The disappointment of ownership change is affecting my ability to leave a detailed review...my apologies.
Shio-ramen: Same as shoyu but a little lighter. It needs more than just one piece of chashu and 3 pieces of menma.
Gyoza: The pre-ownership change gyoza was also much better than it is now but I was still pleased with the flavor. It actually woke up my senses and invoked the nostalgic memories of old-koryu. If you go here just to eat the gyoza you should leave happy. You may even want to stay away from the ramen all together and order one of their chinese dishes.
