Japan Center Malls in San Francisco
The Japan Center is a great place for shopping and lots of eating. Lots of eating!!! The mall has a manga bookstore, antique store, a sweet shop, places to buy tea, an ice cream shop, donut shop and many restaurants. We wandered around for about an hour. I bought a cute shiba inu bag. We had reservations for Marufuku Ramen, which is very popular. The ramen is excellent with a very rich flavor. The staff is very friendly. Afterward, we had ice cream. I had hojicha and jasmine ice cream. Hojicha is a new flavor for me. It is green tea leaves roasted over charcoal. It has a more robust flavor than matcha and it was a nice ice cream flavor.
The Japan Center Malls have been around since 1968. It is one of my favorite malls in San Francisco!My friend’s ramen
