Orochon Ramen


WHY To give your taste buds a jolt with ramen that comes in nine levels of spiciness.

WHAT The ramen is tasty and the soup is flavorful, but what Orochon is famous for is its spicy challenge. The levels range from seven (no spice) to one (extremely hot), then moves up to ‘special number’ one and two (unimaginably mouth-on-fire, tears-running-down-your-face hot). Those brave enough to finish a special number two bowl of ramen (broth included) get a place on the Wall of Fame. The wait can be long and the restaurant is small, but if you want ramen adventure, this is the place to go.

WHO Spicy food lovers, USC students and locals looking for a face-sweating challenge.
