If you want eat to at Tsujita during lunchtime without waiting more than 15 minutes, go alone to maximize your chances at snagging a sole seat at the counter. Otherwise, you might be waiting quite a while outside this small Sawtelle joint, along with everyone else who is there for the same reason you are: tsukemen. This would be dipping ramen that comes in two bowls—one for the noodles and the other for the broth. And Tsujita's tsukemen—served only at lunch—is probably some of the best in town. The broth is deeply porky and flavorful, and the noodles have a bite that can withstand the richness of the broth. No doubt, you'll inhale your bowl in 20 minutes. As for the 20-plus minutes you may have spent waiting in line? Worth every second.
