Ken's Ramen is an entirely chicken-based ramen spot in Virgil Village that’s a godsend for anyone keeping kosher or halal. With a paitan broth that leans towards the sweeter side, L.A. native chef Will Hu’s ramen captures all the richness of a pork-based tonkotsu paired alongside a chewy, springy noodle with just enough bite to keep things fresh and interesting. For added flavor, order the spicy Hell version, which uses house-made chili oil to add dimensions of heat and flavor. On hotter days, we love the broth-less tan-tan mazemen. With a squeeze of lime, nutty sesame puree and chili oil, it’s a delicious way to enjoy Ken’s without breaking a sweat.
