Los Angeles
Udon Restaurant

408 N La Cienega Blvd

West Hollywood, CA 90048

Despite the fact that LA never reaches sub-zero temps, steaming Japanese noodle soups remain a fixture of the city's dining scene. Case in point: the udon-laden, dashi-flavored broths at West Hollywood's Kochi. Both conventional Japanese and Western-inspired udon bowls are available here, including the traditional Kakiage with vegetable tempura and the more fusion Uni Cream with sea urchin and truffle. Start with garlic edamame and tuna poke before diving into a bowl of the steamy ramen alternative.
