WHY Brothy and flavorful ramen with lots of add-on toppings, like enoki mushrooms, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts and boiled eggs.
WHAT This joint in the back of Weller Court serves some of Little Tokyo’s best ramen. There are seven kinds, but it’s the tan-tan men that keeps us coming back. The noodles are chewy, and the soup is creamy, spicy, salty and nutty all at the same time. It comes with ground beef and spinach, but don’t be afraid to throw on extra toppings. Fun-loving waiters also add to the lively atmosphere.
WHO Ramen fanatics tired of the wait at nearby Daikokuya.
