Don’t be surprised if you find yourself fighting back the urge to say, "Oishii" upon tasting the ramen at this Little Tokyo joint. Chewy noodles are soaked in a rich layer of tonkotsu broth for a rich, comforting bowl with its own cult following. Make sure to grab a seat at the chef’s bar to watch all the noodle-slinging in action.

Shin Sen.... one of my go to spots in Little Tokyo. It's perfect for that cloudy/cool weather. Be prepared for it to get super busy as others will be thinking the same thing!
The place isn't super big so you'll have to put your name on the list. The turnover is pretty quick as the service is excellent and it's definitely one of those places where you order, eat, and go.
The Tonkatsu Ramen is the go to and I enjoy how you can cook to order the firmness of noodle, flavor of the broth, and add ons. The add ons are always the best like egg, bamboo, seaweed, chasu pork, etc. I wish they had more of these already included but hey they have to make some money somehow.
