Tsujita LA Artisan Noodle
The 26 Most Comforting Ramen Joints in LA to Try This Winter
Tsujita provided Angelenos with a quantum shift in ramen understanding when Tokyo master Takehiro Tsujita opened up shop in 2012. His company followed up that megahit with this ramen-only annex across the street that specializes in even more intense bowls. Tsukemen is the clear choice, featuring thick, al dente Sun noodles, a soft-boiled egg, fat-rimmed chashu, a sizable mound of peppery bean sprouts, and tangy, savory tonkotsu broth bobbing with pork fat. To bolster your bowl, spoon on minced garlic or onikasu (red spice) for “extra flavor.” They’ll even provide extra pork back fat for true pork hounds.
