Tokushima ramen at Men Oh Ramen

While Little Tokyo hasn’t had the same influx of new ramen shops that other parts of the city have experienced, you'll still find a new place or two if you look hard enough. Case in point: Men Oh Ramen, tucked away in Honda Plaza. A small shop with a handful of tables and a long bar, Men Oh hails from the Tokushima region of Japan, where the dominant industry is pig farming. Thus, the signature item, the Tokushima Ramen, is an unctuous, deeply pork-flavored bowl, with toppings that include not only lovely slices of tender chashu, but also strips of stir-fried butabara pork. Those additions, plus the pork bone and soy sauce-based broth, make this bowl one of the more complex ones in town.

Men Oh! One of the more off the beaten paths from the main Little Tokyo area.  It's located in the Honda Plaza with other great eats and cute shops!

They have a small menu which is very simple and straight to the point.  I love their classic ramen as well as appreciate the diversity of other types of non traditional ramen like vegetable and chicken based broth.

It's a small little place so get there either early or later for some yummy food!
