Used to live in Los Angeles, I ate at this spot all the time. Went back for a three day visit for my father in laws 60th bday. Made this a priority and it did not disappoint as usual. I always order the same thing. The most popular ramen but I get extra pork in it. I mean this is actually heaven and the only thing I miss about LA. Keep up the fast service and amazing recipe. No other trendy place in LA compares to this. This is beyond the best. My sister in law and mother in law tried it and said it was divine. So yeah, eat here often if you can.
While you wait there is a great, dark, and fun bar right next door. There's also a nice video to watch while you wait. It's fun and instructive. The ramen is very good. I like the steamed gyoza. It's pretty typical with busy servers, and people coming and going. I also like to add in lots of extras and they are pretty inexpensive here. There's valet parking for $5,and you're probably gonna need it.
This used to be my fave ramen spot. The noodles were freshly made and the ramen broths (Tonkatsu and Shoyu) were delicious. In the past 6 months, it seems that the quality of the noodles and broth have drastically declined. The broth is way too salty and the noodles are limp and soggy. Now I don't even order ramen here. The seafood bowls and sushi are yummy. I'm still in search for an amazing ramen spot in the Eastside.
