While my sister and her husband were in town, I took them around a bit of Downtown LA. We started in Little Tokyo then down to City Hall. Check out some of the sights! FYI, I have a very goofy family.
After our quick tour, we headed over to Ikemen, a ramen joint known for their tsukemen, or dip ramen. It is located outside of Weller Court in Little Tokyo. They have really cool decor!
We pretty much ordered every single ramen dish on the menu! Well not really, but there were only 6 of us and we each got something different. My sister was the daring one and ordered the Ghost Buster Ramen, which had a roasted marshmallow in the broth. It was surprising delicious!
I tried everyone’s ramen and everything was bomb-diggity! The noodles were perfect and chewy and every bowl of broth was rich, flavorful, and unique! Chashu was tender and the onsen tamago was a nice touch to the broth, if you like your broth extra rich! I would definitely come back here. The service was also great. Everyone, including the chefs behind the counter, were super nice. What a great place for tsukemen!
The tour continued towards 5th Street and Broadway, then the arts district on Grand Avenue.
It was such a great day for a tour of LA. The weather was nice and we saw as much as we could within 4 hours and ate amazing ramen. I really do love LA and what is has to offer!
