Despite L.A.'s proliferation of ramen shops, Jinya remains one of the best. The tonkotsu specialist offers a full slate of pork-based ramen, all of which smack strong with not only pork, but also what someone there might tell you is an "industrial" amount of dashi (Japanese soup base) and dried fish. Purists can order the Tonkotsu Original to appreciate the remarkable umami of this soup. For the adventurous diners, there’s the Tonkotsu Red, which takes its name from the daunting amount of red chili oil liberally applied.
