Located in the food court of West L.A.'s Mitsuwa Japanese supermarket, Japan's ramen chain offers some of the best bowl of noodles in L.A. Choose from shio (salt), soy, miso or spicy miso ramen. Hungry diners can add the optional set option which includes a rice bowl—we like the ikura-topped savory side—and soy-flavored egg. Those dining along or eating on-the-go can snag a booth or stool and expect a wait on weekends and at lunchtime. Remember to hit the ATM before dropping into this cash-only joint.
